Tweaking the Client

Ways to tweak the client?

Use the console client over any other client.
Move the client to the start of the partition or hard drive.

Defrag your filesystem often.
Check for dust on your heatsinks.
Make sure the ambient temperature in the case is cool and not like an oven.
Run your client at low priority instead of idle.
Consider running the client at normal priority on a dedicated machine.
Always keep the software up to date.
Customise your flag usage for better workunits.
Consider the use of a ramdrive.
Use linux over windows (stability is key in tweaks).
Makes sure you have a sufficient amount of ram (256mb minimum).
Remove all non required services (NT/2K/XP), go here for help.
