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.
42) 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.

And I also had the windows 10 install folder downloaded to my machine without my permission.

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.

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

It's beginning:

Windows patch KB 3139929: When a security update is not a security update.

Microsoft buried a 'Get Windows 10' ad generator inside this month's Internet Explorer security patch for Windows 7 and 8.1


If Microsoft's documentation is correct, installing Patch Tuesday's KB 3139929 security update for Internet Explorer also installs a new Windows 10 ad-generating routine called KB 3146449.

Many people -- present company included -- feel that putting an ad generator inside a security patch crosses way over the line. In fact, you have to ask yourself if there are any lines any more.


Looks like they are going to force everyone into not checking for updates.

You need to update your Lunatics install.

We have moved on from both V6 of Astropulse and V7 of Multibeam.

I did try to search forums and questions but didn't found answer.

So I need current Linux Astropulse Nvidia GPU app_info.xml and necessary files to process AP.

For this host

Is that correct that current stock app is "optimized" app?


http://lunatics.kwsn.info/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=485

That is the most recent release for AP work.

I just spent the last 4 days in Mid 80's temps, no A/C either.

Phoenix is warm this time of the year.
57) Questions and Answers : Windows : Newby question (Message 1766801)
Posted 22 Feb 2016 by Profile arkaynProject Donor
Hi all, I have a question pertaining to Internet speed. We use dial-up on our local phone system (yes, I know, but it's all we have!) and I'm considering the SETI@home program. Our Internet speed is usually pretty good for dial-up, but occasionally in the evening at peak traffic times, we experience buffering when watching HD videos. I'm using a Gateway laptop running Windows 8, and keep the laptop elevated on a wire shelf to help keep it from overheating. Will running the BOINC affect our ability to watch videos, or vice-versa? I love the idea of contributing to the science, but am concerned that it will eat up bandwidth that we can't spare. Thanks!


Multibeam WU's are about 364 kb, Astropulse WU's are 8 Mb.

Cosmic,

I don't mean to be rude, but what do your computer issues have to do with Server Problems?

There are computer builds threads ...


I have no problem with these posts, and seeing as it is my thread...
