Hey Everyone,

BOINC has released a new version of the BOINC client (7.6.6) which fixes a known bug causing ~3% validation errors on MilkyWay@home and other projects. Please update your clients soon to fix this issue. For more info please see my thread in number crunching here.

Still running 7.4.42 but upgraded to Msoft V-10 on two PCs. Both use i5 Intel processors. One runs 32-bit; the other 64-bit OS. The 32-bit machine runs only seti@home. The 64-bit machine runs only milkyway@home. Both machines are running without problems. Thought you might like some good news for a change.
