Re: Sawyer's Cancer Fighting Network

Latest stats show "Total Run Time (y:d:h: m:s) (Rank) 1058:034:21:28:17 (#159)" with 594+ on the two cancer projects, so I think that is it. I'm swapping back to UBT now.

Re: At last!

No chance of that! :lol: :lol: :lol: It is only a teensy out-the-box Lenovo, but at least it has a graphics card that does something Boinc-wise (unlike my older rather basic desktops, all of which have bitten the dust for one reason or another)

I think you are all fairly safe! ;)
