1) Message boards : Problems and Help : Possibly pedantic perception of potentially problimatic parenthetical positioning (Message 128931)

Pity you spoiled the alliteration with the word "of"

Replace "of" by "pertaining" and you get it full of "p".
I'd still need to use "to" but it would add another "P" word.

"Not every word in a sentence must be alliterative. You can use prepositions, pronouns, and other parts of speech, and still maintain the overall, alliterative effect."

Fair enough, I knew there was a chance it was done that way on purpose.
Debated whether or not to even ask about it until that thread title started forming in my head... couldn't let that one go to waste. :)

"My Badges" page shows:
GFN (15, 16, 17Low, 17Mega, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22),
Do You Feel Lucky?

Shouldn't it be:
GFN (15, 16, 17Low, 17Mega, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, Do You Feel Lucky?)

5) Message boards : Number crunching : limit which tasks run on different computers (Message 128504)

On the left of this page click on "Your Account"

In the "Preferences" section select "Preferences for this project"
Here's where you define what you want per "Group". Click "Edit Prime Grid Preferences" at the bottom to set it up.
After making your changes click "Update preferences" at the very bottom.

Then head back to the "Your Account" page and in the "Computing and Credit" section select "Computers On This Account"

For each computer, click on "Details"
Last line from the bottom is "Location". Match that to whichever "Group" you set up for it earlier and click "Update"


Make sure to fill out "Reporting primes to the Prime Pages" in the "Default" group (this will save time and effort when you find your first prime)

Edit: darkclown, quck and to the point. I missed your post because I had mine open for so long.

First thing I would check is that the location assigned to that computer (Your Account - Computers on this account - Details) is the same location as the preferences you're updating.

OK, This is interesting...

Note: I use local preferences for all my computers.

When I told you to look at the Event Log to see what Prime Grid said the computer location was, I was at work. The work computer is set to use the default settings so it has no location and the Event Log says "Computer Location: none". So, this is as expected.

However, the laptop is set to "Work" but the Event Log says "generic". The home computer is set to "Sun", Event Log says "home" (It is a distinct possibility that this computer was at some point set as "home" but it's been "Sun" for a long time now.)
This is followed by "no location preferences for home, using your defaults"

So now I gotta see what happens if I set some preferences for "home" (I'll use 25% CPUs)-
It found settings for "home" but I'm still set for local preferences so they overrode it and still using 50% CPUs.
Changing to use web based preferences -
Now using 100% CPUs, location was updated to "Sun", no preferences set for "Sun" using default and default setting is 100% CPUs

OK, well, that didn't really go anywhere did it... behaved as expected. I thought maybe there was some way you could end up with different locations for Computing Preferences and Prime Grid Preferences but.. no.

Soooo, did using another location fix your issue? 'cause I can't think of anything else to try right now.

I would check the Event Log (Boinc Manager - Tools - Event Log)

If you just restarted scroll up to the top and start reading. You should be able to find where it's getting the preferences from, what the Host location is and what the current settings are.

In the BOINC Manager on the local computer
Under "Options"
Click on "Computing Preferences"

Look at the very top of that box it should say "Using web preferences"

You may have to restart BOINC for it to take effect.

The tasks tab has 2 settings for the 1st button under "Commands" on the left.
One is "Show all tasks" and one is "Show active tasks".
You'll want the button to read "Show active tasks".

Don't known how but I've had that switch on it's own before.
