Running BOINC 4.13, not running any other preferences. I'm also running Predictor@home and Pirates@Home on one computer with the same preferences.

This changed the preferences on 6 machines, all that had sent in trickles.

Anyone else have their general preferences reset to defualt?

Ended up shutting off the computer and restarting. BOINC didn't see the dialup connection for some reason, from the problems LHC is haveing sound like BOINC 4.09 is somewhat buggy

This is the second day I've got this error, it started after starting a new unit, hasn't been able to trickle anything in. If I need to reset rather do it now before it's to far along.

10) Message boards : Number crunching : CPDN Boinc memory footprint (Message 2717)
Posted 3514 days ago by Profile Narwhal
&gt; As a recent convert from S@H I have been looking at transferring some
&gt; resources to the CPDN project. In my limited experimentation so far on both
&gt; Win32 and Linux systems, the memory footprint for the CPDN client appears to
&gt; be around 45-50 MB compared to the 16MB or so of the Seti client.
&gt;
&gt; Is this by design for the project as a whole or have I been unfortunate to
&gt; download a particularly heavy chunk of the code. If by design, then this would
&gt; rather preclude, or at least be a negative factor in running CPDN on live
&gt; systems such as web/file servers which are idle and underused a lot of the
&gt; time, and in many ways the most ethical platform to run DC projects on as they
&gt; are powered up 24/7 by necessity. 50MB could be an appreciable proportion of
&gt; the memory on a small webserver, which will benefit from all available
&gt; resources at peak usage.
&gt;
&gt; I shall probably stick with S@H on such platforms and run CPDN on
&gt; workstations, it at least sits quietly on a chair in the corner eating up
&gt; unused CPU cycles rather than occupying half the sofa :-)
&gt;

That's about right, runs around 50 meg on my machines
