I will add this to the work schedule, to not steal the focus.

Workaround is setting it to 1440 minutes and hoping it doesn't happen at an inopportune time the next day.
Setting the Check for new to 0 should disable. 0=Disabled.

Questions / Re: Instances crashing

Could this cause it ?
It's not unusual for an update to cause a problem.
A full shutdown and restart should solve any problems.
Hidden might not be a problem, just a setting to remove things an average user doesn't want to see.

But you didn't tell what crashed.

Setting the offset to 5 or -5 should do the trick, otherwise changing TJunction is OK.

Wish List / Re: Allow shutdown of remote clients

I can do it with access to the Boinc manager on the remote computer (i.e. being at that computer, or using a remote desktop to get to its boinc manager).  Are you saying that the boinc client doesn't have this function for the remote access?  If so I'll ask over there.
Unless they added it recently it's not in the BOINC Client for remote access.

I tried setting the Tjunction manually in the box later to what Core Temp says Tj max is, and that makes all temperatures in line with hwinfo, hwmonitor, and core temp, but on the temperature page it causes a flashing warning message to appear, so I set it back to default Tjunction because I'm worried I messed something up here.

I'm not sure what to put in temperature offset since the different cores seem to have different temp differences from one another and putting in a value fixes only one value's accuracy.


The cores have separate sensors, the temps are probably not the same, so that's just fine.

If you want to correct without the flashing warning that's harmless, just a reminder it's not the default setting.
Use the offset in the expert tab, that's doing essentially the same thing, moving the temp reading up or down.

Non of the settings can harm the processor in any way.

If the computer column is in the Tasks tab is should be in the cloud display.

That's because the BOINC Client doesn't allow a shutdown, as far as I can remember.

Go to the Computer Tab and change the name in the Computers column.
If the IP address of the computer isn't fixed, you should use the MAC Address instead of the IP address.

That's possible, the core temperature (TThrottle) should be higher than the case temperature.
If you think the reading is incorrect, you can correct it in the expert tab and set Temperature offset.

Cloud / Re: Can't set up cloud account?
« on: May 19, 2020, 02:36:35 am »
I don't get that far, I can see nowhere to create an account.  Tried Opera and Edge browsers.  I can only see a place to login.

Assume I'm 5 years old and explain what to click :-)
At the bottom of the page https://cloud.seti.nl
You should see Create new account Resend and Forgot.

Just tested with Opera.

Wish List / Re: Display number of CPUs not % in "use at most"
« on: May 19, 2020, 02:33:53 am »
Yes, I asked them to change it and they told me to get lost.  I thought perhaps Boinctasks could translate the number into a percentage.
It should be solved at the source, the client know everything about the machine.

In extra, boinc preference, processor, "on multiprocessor systems, use at most", the number of CPUs would be easier than the percentage.  I have two machines with 24 cores each.  Converting to a percentage is a nuisance and requires me to get my calculator out!

Be aware that if this has to be converted to a percentage to give to boinc, then it should increase it slightly.  Eg if I have 3 cores and enter 66.6%, it will use only 1 core.  If I enter 66.7% it will use 2 cores.  Boinc rounds down, not up.
This is a BOINC client thing, that handles it this way.

Wish List / Re: Please fix the date format in the deadline column
« on: May 19, 2020, 01:54:29 am »
I have Windows 10 set to display quite a long date format, so Boinctasks is showing "Wed, 20/5/2020 11:15:09 AM" in the deadline column which makes it rather wide.  I tried changing the setting in extra, boinctasks settings, view, but the user defined option doesn't work.  It just shows exactly what I type, eg "d, HH:MM:SS" and doesn't interpret it as a date and time.
Missed this one.
Something broke, but this works %Hh,%Mm

I don't check frequently.
Just tested and everything worked as expected.
But I've seen problems with email addresses that have multiple dots.
