    Wehey, consistently in the news since I started a month or so back. Shame I only have the one rig, and sometimes it slows down while I'm using it for gaming etc! Still, it'll have to do for now.

    I've been running the screensaver for a couple weeks now but i've just got the client as I should do alot more with it performing 100% all the time (poor 60oC athlon xp :)).

    I've only ever had 400 frames before that I can do in 2 weeks, but I just got a 3750 frames unit! Is there any point to these? ETA is 100 days :-D

    the ETA should come down a lot - give it an hour or so to get 1% or 2% into it and it should show a much nicer time than that

    Ah its 2 days now. I guess the client works differently to a screensaver... already done 37 frames. On the screen saver that would have taken a few hours

    Also, the number of frames in a unit doesn't decide how long it will take, because frames can vary widely in length.

    Yea, I think it might have been the windows Firewall, didn't have it down as an exception. Just gotta hope that it tries to resend at somepoint.
