If I UPDATE the PROJECT from the BOINC Manager, is that good enough to make sure the machine has read the preferences from the web?
Yes

Venue is an issue when you change preferences in another one than the machine with the problem is running in. You have to change the preferences in the venue/location of the problematic PC and then make sure it reads those preferences from that project to make sure it's got them. Not all preferences are set via BOINC Manager, some are still set via the web site, this being one of them.

My apologies, the "Suspend when no mouse/keyboard input in last N minutes" option is only available on the website preferences.
So here make sure you change it in the correct venue/location for that computer.

I say that because your global_prefs.xml file shows:
<suspend_if_no_recent_input>0.0</suspend_if_no_recent_input>
<suspend_cpu_usage>25.0</suspend_cpu_usage>
for the default venue, but:
<suspend_if_no_recent_input>3.0</suspend_if_no_recent_input>
<suspend_cpu_usage>25.0</suspend_cpu_usage>
for the Home venue.

You can check the computer's location by picking it from https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php, going into its details, then scrolling down to Location.

There's an option in the computing preferences called "Suspend when no mouse/keyboard input in last N minutes". Set this to --- or 0 to disable it. This is causing the message you see.

45-65C isn't really too warm for an i7 under load. Depending on the model and method of cooling (air or water), amount of fans used and if these are aftermarket or stock, temperatures for an i7 under sustained load go in the high 70s to low 90s.

I noticed these boards had their outage as well. Sorry I'm not much around, but there are many things happening in my life right now which cause me to be away from my home. Good things, only good things.

The first dates range is 20-09 -> 06-10, but I am already contemplating of making it a full three weeks ordeal, 18-09 -> 10-10.
The dates are going to be 18-09 --> 10-10, and as it now looks I will not be coming alone. Asked Isa early this time and she said yes. Just there, she didn't even have to think about it. So yes, I am very happy.

I'm in the market for a new system, a new PC, a new gaming machine. I won't run BOINC on it, that's done solely on the Android devices I have scattered around that are compatible. My present Intel i5-3470 with Radeon RX470 - 8GB and Windows 7 x64 is certainly not too old for many games, but there are games out there that require a 4th generation Intel iCPU and better videocards.

So, I have been looking around and building, virtually, my dream systems.
In AMD that'll be an
- Asus Prime X470-Pro socket AM4 motherboard
- AMD Ryzen 5 2600X CPU

In Intel that'll be an
- Asrock Z390 Taichi Ultimate motherboard
- Intel i5-9600K CPU

Both will further consist of:
- Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R RGB water cooling
- 32GB Corsair DDR4-2666, white
- Asrock Phantom Gaming X Radeon VII 16GB GPU
- Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C White TG Tower case
- Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 850W fully modular PSU
- 1x Adata XPG Gammix S11 Pro 1TB M.2 SSD
- 1x Seagate Barracuda 8TB HDD
- Windows 10 x64 Pro

The AMD system comes out at €2250,40
The Intel system comes out at €2470,40

So just €220,- between them.

Now to figure out which of the two to order... Advice?

Some corner of the internet is kinked!

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at setiathome.berkeley.edu.
BOINC: 06/04/2019 15:32:10 | SETI@home | Server can't open database

So welcome all... make yourself at home, this may take a while.

To be able to help you we need more information. In the least which operating system(s) you're working on.
And did you check that the client is actually running?

Is BOINC Manager->View->Advanced view->Options->Other Options->Run the client checked?

So for a while now i have not been able to open my messages, when i get a notification that i have a message, i can open it from anyone but one person and reply, when i get a notification from that one person i can't open it and reply, I have to use the mobile site
So you
can use messages, can even open them, but for from this one person. Who is this person and at what project then? Does he use special characters in his name?
By messages you mean private messages?
And what do you mean by the number 3.23.0.228839 in the title?

GPS users beware: "The legacy GPS navigation message has a ten (10) bit parameter that represents Week Number (WN). Thus, the WN parameter in the GPS navigation message “rolls over” to zero every 1024weeks starting from 0000Z January 6, 1980. The next WN rollover will occur April 6, 2019."
From the Homeland Security of the US Govt (PDF). So watch out when you drive this weekend, you could end up elsewhere than you expected. ;-)

they gave me this huge 4 wheel drive giant jeep thing. I went from riding close to the road to way up in the air. I need a ladder to get into this thing.
Reminiscent of Richard Hammond getting into his souped up Chevrolet C/K Silverado truck in one of the recent episodes of The Grand Tour.
