Does BOINC run on 64 bit computers? I may try to lay hands on one at work and one determining factor if I try will be if BOINC on it.

Yes, They run faster. If it has a 64 bit OS some run even faster, like Milkyway. #ni-1

Einstein & Cosmo are good choices for a 64 bit machine. (All my machines except my laptop & 2 P4 space-heaters are 64 bit).

Borging won't happen, but since the Web group is getting new PCs, I might get me a hand me down. It would be faster than what I have now. I would rather have one of the new ones though. Dual quad cores...*sigh
