Although my %tage of work has been steadily increasing and so had my stats,around 3 days ago even though my work has still increased my stats had stayed the same and the average took a significant fall.Could anyone explain this I`m a novice on this comp` thing.Also I`m running a P4 3.2ghz with 2gb ram,XP home on a laptop can I speed up the computational power applied to this program version 5.2.13 easily in anyway.

Reading the number crunching forum will tell you that there is an issue on the server end, it is being looked into, but the staff is down some people, and it may be a few more days before all is going normal, again.

See this thread about trickles and credits.

Laptops are not a good idea unless you\'re prepared to \'baby sit\' them.
They are designed for intermittent use, so their cooling and hard disks aren\'t as robust as a desktop.

If you do use it, for as much time as possible, support the base well above the desk; keep the cooling vent very clean; backup the entire hd regularly, in case of a disk failure.

To speed up the model processing, DON\'T use a screen saver; it uses a lot of the processor\'s time. Set Windows to None, or Blank.

Good about the laptop cooler, bad about the shoulder.
Commiserations. I hope it gets better soon.
