I was finally able to dump 1 of 2 wu completed since last night but the server would not receive it. Still working on the last one. I guess using the ie setting does not like it but why only one not both. FAQ said try that setting so I did.
KK you able to run your smp client as a service?
March 21st, 2008, 08:04 PM #242
Yes. It's running as a service.
I've had no problems with downloads at all today. I check my window, and it uploaded the WU I finished, and then downloaded a new WU.
time stamp was 17:55.

still haven't completed my second WU, but i did just post a Name My dog contest. come up with the winning name and I will run my slow ass Computer in your name for a month or two. Maybe I'll even fire Up the server in your name.
Any body else want to donate some cpu time to the contest? It might just be a way to entice new members to join.

oh i see, while they say you can't run it as a service it is possible (smp client)

I tried to get that smp client as a service again, nogo. I think again its how it configured it. Just don't want to lose 17% done smp wu. I think its worth 1760 points per pop. I'll try it again when the wu is done.
No issue with the non smp console client. All running on the background with out any dos box left open.

OK funny story, I built a computer for a guy at work, a family computer, it's an AMD X2 6000 running raid0, he told me the other day at work that his 10 year old son had crashed the computer,
well it has vista home premium in it so I told him he could do a startup restore to fix it, so the other night I was on the phone walking him through the steps to do the restore, but he could not find the right raid drivers on the disk,
so last night I went over to his house and tried the restore, but none of the Nvidia Nforce drivers would work, (well what the hell) computer starts up says healthy Nvidia raid, so the computer knows the drives are there,
so finally I tell him I will take the box home and fix it, (it's getting late)
well today I come home and start looking at the box, still can't find drivers for the sata raid, BING!!! (light bulb goes off in head) wait a minute vista is not looking for drives, it's looking for the OS, HEEELLOOO!!!!!
but why can't it find the vista install, OK I decide to start an install to see what it does, it gets to the raid drives without loading any drivers,
and says drive size 149.9gigs available space 149.9 gigs (WHAT!!)
where oh where has the OS gone,
so I call the man and ask what did your son do, he says he said he started the computer and accidentally hit F10, so I told him well he did more than hit F10 somehow he deleted the raid volume and then set it back again,
I told him that vista was gone and I mean gone, not just crashed,
I told him F10 is how you get in to the raid setup utility, he must have removed 1 drive from the raid set by moving the arrow key and broke the raid, but put the drive back again, (to late)
well we have decided it will be safer if he does not run raid, the son can't delete everything in 1 keystroke,
lucky the computer is just a family box nothing important on it,i'm folding for techimo!! what are you doing?

Amazing what kids can do.
Similar story here also.
Guy at work calls me, and says his internet is not working. He's still running on a XP1200. So it's a old system to begin with. So automatically I think some kind of hardware failure.
So I have him bring me the box, and I get it hooked up here, everything is good. No problems what so ever.
So I bring it back to him, told him everything works at my house. He gets it back to his house later that day, and everything works, no problems. He called me to tell me.
About a hour later, he calls me back, says the internet is not working again. I'm like WTF at this point.
So I go over to his house, look all over in M$, it shows no connection at all. So I go to pull the tower out some, and what do I see?
A network cable just laying on the ground, not connected to anything.
Apparently his grandson (2 year old) likes the brightly colored cable, and likes to pull on it. So I replaced it with a dull grey cable, and problem solved!

XP... I'm still trying to figure out how to run WS 2003 on here. It looks like I may have to lose Ubuntu for it though.
