I\'m running a 2.8 PIV with 1GB of RAM, XP Home, and leave it on all day, too. Although I\'ve experienced a similar slowdown (2 seconds per time step to 3.25 or so), I haven\'t had the kinds of problems you\'re experiencing. I\'m running BOINC version 4.19, by the way--4.45 kept crashing, and 4.19 is running perfectly smoothly.

I\'m running a 2.80 Celeron PC, 512MB RAM, XP Home Edition. I leave the machine on 24x7.

When running the slab model, I was averaging 3 trickles a day. Since receiving a sulphur model on 9/1, I\'m averaging 1 trickle a day.

In addition to the sulphur model taking twice a long to process a trickle, the BOINC client occasionally stops for no apparent reason. (Getting into the habit of checking Windoze Task Manager to make sure it is still running.)

There\'s a lot of folks out here who are NOT tech weenies and would appreciate some guidance on a) what is happening and b) how to fix it IN SIMPLE ENGLISH.

IMHO, you\'re going to lose folks who throw up their hands and silently slip into the night. No credit = no feedback (RAC) = fewer clients. The project may suffer from fewer clients.



(Sorry for wrong post)

I am not a tech weenie either, furthermore, although my English is not too bad, it is NOT my native language, and, i was about to \"throw up my hands\" :):):)

&gt; There is a very full explanation of BOINC <a> href="http://boinc-doc.net/index.php
&gt; "&gt;here</a> and also the pages on the menu to the left called 'Getting started'
&gt; and 'FAQ'. But they probably tell you more than you want to know at the
&gt; moment.
&gt;
&gt; You have done the first thing by opening an account, and I expect that you
&gt; have downloaded and installed BOINC.
&gt;
&gt; 1. Open the BOINC window. (If there is already a blue disk with a yellow B in
&gt; it in the task bar, right click on that and select 'show' or double click).
&gt;
&gt; 2. Select 'settings' and 'attach to project..'
&gt;
&gt; 3. Use the url and account numbers you were given in the email you were sent
&gt; when you registered.
&gt;
&gt; 4. You should get a series of messages in BOINC, various files should appear
&gt; in the transfers tab, and then you should have a line in the Work tab labelled
&gt; Climateprediction.net.
&gt;
&gt; 5. If you right click on that and select graphics you should be able to see
&gt; that it is running.
&gt;
&gt; If it doesn't work as described, tell us what is going wrong and we will try
&gt; and help.

I am new here. I do not understand how to start "crunching". Mind, i am a layman, not one of your scientific types.
