As it was just an observation nothing more, I will leave this thread to go whichever way it wants.


As long as it does not go completely off track, I don't care all that much.

Another criteria is it must be running the stock apps.

No app_info.xml allowed.

Wind over 42 mph killed the power here on Thorsday, that was fixed in about 10 minutes.


The rest of my canopy is taking a beating currently, the part that was down was moved quite a ways from the force of the wind.

I'm still waiting to see the new Update Client for April appear. Every month since July or August has had one. It will likely be in this upcoming Tuesday's pile of updates, but the past few months.. between the 1st and 3rd is when those months have had their new update clients released, so why not this month as well? Oh, right.. because I bet there's so much new crap being added in these iterations that it falls into the category of being released on Patch Tuesday. Just my hunch. Guess we'll see how that pans out.


Guess what showed up once again, our "favorite" compatibility patches un-hidden by them once again.

Or you could use the built in Windows Image found in Backup on your W7 computer.

The irritating thing about that is that it requires a 1TB drive to backup to, even if the Windows partition is just 120GB.

I see that Macrium allows for individual partition imaging and cloning, so you can store multiple images or partitions on a 1TB drive.


I just used Reflect to move my Win7 install from a 90GB SSD to a 250GB SSD.
32) Questions and Answers : Windows : Seti version 8 (Message 1776637)

To at least answer your original questions about stock versus non-stick, this shows that you are running non-stock applications:
06/04/2016 09:02:55 | SETI@home | Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform

You're probably running the Lunatics optimized application(s), and with those in place you are always telling BOINC which applications it should run with.
Which means that whenever a new application is released, BOINC won't automatically download it, but you will have to download & update it by hand.

If you ever feel it's not really necessary anymore and you want to run with the stock applications, that's possible. To do so, exit BOINC completely, navigate to the Seti directory under the BOINC data directory (in you case that's at E:\Programme\BOINC\data\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\) and rename or remove the app_info.xml file. When done, restart BOINC, and reset the Seti project. (e.g. BOINC Manager, View, Advanced view, Projects, select Seti, Reset, (and probably acknowledge)).

BOINC will then start downloading the stock applications and get work for it.



Thanks for the explanation. I remember i made something with this Lunatics-thing you mentioned, i think it makes processing WU faster or something ?
What would you say, should i stick with it, or just remove the app_info.xml - file to get the updates automatically in future ?


And for Lunatics, you need to update the version that you installed.

I grew up in John Day - a wee bit further North.


I went through there once, on my way to Pendleton. We went over to Lakeview and went up.

After reading these posts I am still happy with the Puget Sound region of Western Washington, the only caveat is you should tolerate moss. It is very green here.



There are places in your area which I enjoy. Like the San Juan Islands, but there are also placed that get over 100 inches of rain in a normal year. I would call your area a cold and wet area. Florida, hot and wet.

Well the constant rain causes many people who move here to leave after a winter or two. It helps to keep the Californians where they belong.


Some of my family lives in southern Oregon, and mom says it rains there a
lot, too. I suffer from chronic depression and I'm not sure I could deal
with so much rain.


Must be on the western side then, Medford, Ashland or Grants Pass.

I always preferred Klamath Falls.

Might be because I grew up there.

I have lived in Oregon and Arizona.

I prefer Oregon still, but cannot afford to move.

I HATE COMMAND LINE!!!! MAC OS X does NOT require the average user to know ANY command line. EVERYTHING is done via GUI and Double Click! NOT Linux!!!


TL


I wish that was true, but I had to use the terminal a lot when I had my iMac.

I don't have to adjust any of them as I live in Arizona, but I like this time of the year as I work in Nevada.

Work and home are back on the same time again.

ATI/AMD is the same company as AMD bought ATI.

The driver cheat sheet works for both.

Looks like the rain passed over my head without dropping anything, nothing but clear skies for us.
