James,

Thanks for the reply.

I shut Boinc down and restarted, now all is good. And downloads are now successful.

No idea on how the machine got its eyes crossed.

The term "go figure" comes to mind.

Have a great weekend!

Cheers!

Robert

Have noted a problem with downloading work units. Have had this difficulty with about 40 work units, this evening. Have set to NNT, for the time being.

A small snipette of the event log. Would these messages indicate a server problem or an issue with my machine?

3) Message boards : Number crunching : Considering a new computer with crunching as a sideline (Message 1415820)
Posted 319 days ago by Profile Robert J
My current computer has a 3.2 GHz processor running Win XP SP 3.

I am considering getting a new computer for general use with crunching as a secondary consideration.

I'm looking at a Intel i5-3470 processor running Win 7. Would this be suitable for a basic machine that does some crunching as a secondary use?

I am looking at Lenovo as a possible candidate for the new machine. Any comments on them as a vendor and quality of their products?

Thanks in advance for any and all opinions.

Looks like the Cricket Graph has taken a nose dive.

Swibby Bear,

Thanks for the heads up. It's been a while since I've had work from that project (Orbit).
