    i created an account named "caretaker" with admin rights and a stupidly strong password. its only purpose is so that three jobs in task scheduler (defrag, clean out temp folders and f@h) can run ok in the task scheduler. its never logged in, and never used by anything other than the task scheduler for doing these jobs. and of course, using the task scheduler you can set what times you want it to run etc. just make a new account, log in to it, set up what you want to do, then log out. i do it that way cause everything caretaker ever needs to do, it has all the correct permissions for.

    The scheduled task worked :D I wasn't even logged in at all but it started running on time under the administrator account. Blinding :p.

    Time to crank out some more work units :rock:

    How does the score work? I have 6 WUs done but I'm above someone with 18 cos I have a higher score.

    I wondered that for a while, seems that larger work units result in a higher score. You have probably crunched larger work units than them.

    Seriously though, that makes sense. I didn't realise the WU were different sizes.

    Welcome aboard mate :D

    All effort is greatly appreciated. How many CPUs are you hoping to be able to bring to the fray?

    The forums are ok, just gotta realise that everyone is just having a laugh and its not personal.

    Don't bother with the IRC room. Cant be assed.
