I've not once, in eight years (as of, uh, last Thursday) turned the heat on during winter. I'd like to think, having grown up with Chicago winters, that I'm made of sterner stuff than to think that 3 C is actually cold...

(That said, I actually did leave the computer on for a few days straight a couple times over the holidays, and it did just about nothing to the temperature that I could tell. Summers, OTOH...)

It's actually one of the work computers. I'm probably going to reinstall BOINC at one point or another on most of our demos, but Vista and BOINC don't play together nicely at all, so I have to run BOINC as a service. It seems to be working OK that way, though (since the CR is apparently chugging through units very nicely), and it's more hidden (no systray icon), so I think I'll do it that way until BOINC 6 comes out.

I'm actually surprised Ziggy is chugging through units as well as he is, since he's only on a few hours per day.

Oh, wait, you can't see my computer's names, can you? Ziggy is 613824, the AMD with an identity crisis. (The SZ and CR are 4134056 and 4134237, respectively. Now that the SZ is running service, it should catch up to the CR pretty quick.)

Now the question I have is, can you do it like this in OS X? I'd rather not have any icons in the dock, or the menu bar, or anywhere. And we're going to get The Ocho sooner or later...
