One setup that doesn't work, Ice, is the blue writing on blue background of your boincstats sig. Some colour combination with greater contrast would make it more legible to these old eyes. :)

I'm not changing my i7/XP/CCC8.12 setup - it works!
Cheers,

Oh, I think it's just right, I can read my sig just fine. I'm not sure why anyone else would want to read my sig or thego degoligoghts thagot cagon bego fogound ogon my sigognagoturego agonywagoy, bugot I'm sugorego igot's vegory igontegoregostigong fogor yogou.

Tried 6.10.3, the GPU scheduling was much better but the CPU scheduler refused to download anything with a short timescale ("won't finish in time" message). Ended up with all four CPU cores idle unless I downloaded Climate Prediction.

At one point it was running 8 tasks (I have a quad with 2 GPU), it was running 4 at normal CPU, 2 GPU and 2 CPU High Priority. That just has to be wrong!

Gave up and reverted to 6.6.31

maybe a little off topic... but, what is the meaning of the two lines

ignoring unknown input argument in app_info.xml: --device
ignoring unknown input argument in app_info.xml: 0

that started appearing in stderr after upgrading to 6.10.3?

The BOINC clients tell GPU applications which GPU they should use by a command line argument (i.e. "--device 0" for the first GPU in the system, "--device 1" for the second one and so on). The same system is now applied for CUDA and CAL (ATI) cards.

For the time being the ATI app ignores those statements. As the app has its own internal scheduling routine (which assigns the device) it doesn't matter in the moment. But when the ATI support of the client has matured, the internal scheduling routine will likely be removed and the app will simply use the assigned GPU.
