Hi! I became a new member tonight! After registering, I noticed that I have the option of selecting my computer to run test applications but the jobs could fail. So I chose 'NO' for that option.

Will this option determine whether I will get any work units? Is the current Windows 1.07 application for this project in test mode?

Hi, we're still in pretty alpha/beta mode so things aren't running perfectly yet. i don't think we've specified the application to be in test mode so i think it should download work units and process them. let me know :)

My first day while attached to this project has given me very many work units! At first, this was overwhelming but my computer has been processing all of them. I did receive some work units that did not download successfully and was immediately marked as 'complete' which my computer send the client errors back to the server. But most of my work units did download successfully. Right now, I have marked this project not to get any more new work units until the task queue becomes more managable and then I will resume fetching new tasks when they become available.

How do you turn off the screensaver. I had to reinstall BOINC and all my projects, but now I cannot find the way to shut it off?
