Hi guys

Wanna hear a funny story????

I added my cpu to the team's cause on Sunday. Coincidentally, just as the IIS sever decided to slooooww down and stop. I thought, not knowing any better at the time, that the BOINC software was the cause for the slowdown. Until, that is, I had time to hit some other websites. The penny slowly dropped that it was indeed a server prob, and nothing to do with E@H!!! lol

I know what you're saying to yourself right now..............but we can all be a little dopey every now and then, can't we????

Cheers

Dave W

Way to go Team.

Great Idea Guys!!!
Add me to the list ( I've Just signed up )

I had forgotten about shared processing projects such as this, I've just added my 2.8Ghz to the project. ( Might even load it on the PCs at work - aside from anti-virus updates & scans, they just sit idle at work for 16hrs a day )

No probs Rowena, you have to restrict it's usage.
I have a 2.8 Ghz. pent4, but only allow it to use half.
