How many Computers do you have Running BOINC Projects?
I only have 2 - an ACER Desktop with Windows VISTA, which I Run 5 Projects (including SETI), and a HP Notebook with Windows 7: I only Run SETI on The Notebook. The Desktop only has 2 or 3 SETI WU's at one time, but the Notebook has up to 30 or 40 WU's at one time. Maybe you may like to consider trying this if you can Dedicate a Computer to SETI alone. You could also try SUSPENDING ALL Projects Except SETI on one Particular Computer (if you have more than one), and leave them Suspended for 3 or 4 days to see if you get any work from SETI (or even if you only have one Computer, you could still try it to see if it makes any difference) ... BUT ... Make sure that You UPDATE to Upload any Completed Tasks before Suspending The Project. Also, Select 'NO NEW TASKS' and Suspend Projects that have NO TASKS at Present before any others, so that it/they won't attempt to Download New Tasks when you Suspend other Projects.

Currently three active.
Two running Windows 7, 64 bit
Third running Ubuntu linux, I can't recall which version as it just sits there not needing anything other than volts and amps being fed though the appropriate inputs....

3 active, have up to five to run, but only my three active ones are worth it.

And i don't always run boinc heavy, I often dial back to a small percentage on one machine, and sometimes go off on credit benders occasionally where I make my house very noisy and warm.

Six across both main and Beta. At the moment 3 and 3 as Beta is a little short of work.

I used to run WGC and Einstein but none gives me the satisfaction of SETI!

1 Super Tower(HAF-932), currently using the cpu only, going to add some gpus in a few months, after upgrading the cpu and after getting some self contained water cooling parts for a gpu card(either a GTX570 or a GTX580).

Under Construction a HAF-X water cooled tower, EK motherboard and cpu blocks to be added to an Asus Rampage 3 Extreme motherboard by a possibly snowed in friend, Room for 4 or maybe 5 GTX570/580 cards(for simplicity and cost).

Just got 2nd one going , an old dell optiplex GX620 with only 2 gigs ddr2 ram ,
No usable GPU (onboard) , a standerd CPU WU is estimated to take over 9 hours on this new comp... ( 2 1/4 hours on my other comp...) Really need some sort of optimized app for CPU for intel computer , to speed this senior citizen up a bit... LOL

Four for me. Three running only S@H 24/7 and one running S@H when I'm not playing games online.

In the past three or four months I've had to decommission three others that I had running.
