Crunchers! :)


I cant remember if i posted this or not, but i've been using this guys sidebar gadgets for almost as long as i've been using Win7 and they are all very good.

Anyway, he also does a BOINC Monitor that shows your tasks etc. I thought you Crunchers may like it. :)

Evan: As Ian said. Click the link i posted, scroll down. ;)

Link 3 is the one you want, direct from his site, thats the easiest way.


Ian: Yep it look alright, his other gadgets are well worth a look too... I use most of them. They are very versatile, You can set them up just how you want them. :)

I liked the look of this too, but does it only work with Win 7, please guys? I'm still using Vista and cannot get the app to open. I have clicked to "unblock" it, just in case that was the problem, but still no joy. :blush:

Should be Vista too, says at the top of his site Win 7 and Vista. :)

You could try emailing him, i've done that before where the network one went belly up on me after an update, he replied and sent me a pre release to test and it worked fine. :)

Oh thank you V_R, I might try that :thumb:

I also wonder whether I am missing something to do with the .rar because in the past I seem to recall running into a problem with that. Can't remember what it was now, only that something failed to open. So I will try checking it out before bothering the guy, just in case it's me! :D

I usually use Windows own unzipper. :) The gadget didn't appear to be a zip file though(?)

Its IMO by far the best zipper out there. :)

Have to say, I'm impressed by how easy/straightforward it is to use. :thumb: The BOINC app works well too, good one. :cheers:

Yep, get the settings set up so it integrates into your right click too if you haven't already and you'll be all set. :)

Yes, all set up although to be truthful, it seemed to do that automatically after I opened it. Thanks again V_R :thumb:
