If using the GUI is what you want to do to “see” your units and how they are processing then there are a couple of ways to tidy things up a bit.

Open up the Layout.xml file (Notepad is as good as any for this) and remove the line that mentions TickerTape.
Don’t know if this actually stops the system producing the info and hence is faster, or not, but it stops it being displayed anyway.
Oh, and restart the client. [/b]
For those of us wishing to promote LifeMapper and an easy way to track your progress, thanks to Riddler we have sigs for LifeMapper.

You can grab your ID number from the following page on my site (you can also click the member Name for more details):
With the advent of the CLI, you can set up LifeMapper to run as a service. For this you can choose which version of the CLI to choose.
The Beta version links can be found in the follow on post.

[quote]Running the LifeMapper CLI Client as a Service in Windows NT/2000/XP
There are several reasons that you might want to run the LifeMapper CLI as a Windows service, rather than as a normal application. The most obvious is that it gets rid of the taskbar button, reducing clutter. The second is if you prefer, for whatever reason, to run the client in “stealth” mode, i.e., not visible to casual viewers. The final and possibly most useful reason is that when the LifeMapper CLI is running as a service, you are no longer required to be logged in to the machine for the LifeMapper CLI to run. This means that if something causes the machine to reboot, the LifeMapper CLI will resume processing even sitting at the Windows login screen. The following takes you through the process of setting up the LifeMapper CLI client to run as a Windows service.
This procedure makes a couple of fundamental assumptions. First of all, it assumes that you have already installed and configured the LifeMapper CLI(text-based) console client. If not, a trip to the LifeMapper web site will get you started. Secondly, it assumes that the path to the client is “C:\lifemapper”. If you have the LifeMapper CLI installed in a different directory, modify the instructions accordingly.
In addition to your LifeMapper CLI installation which is assumed to be installed in [b]c:\lifemapper[/b], you will need the two small Microsoft programs in order to set up your service. Instsrv.exe is the program used to create a Windows service, and Srvany.exe is a program that allows almost any other program to run as a service. These files are available in Microsoft’s Windows Resource Kit, at various internet sites, or you can just download them both here.
Put Instsrv.exe and Srvany.exe in your LifeMapper CLI directory.
From the Start button, go to Programs->Accessories, then click on Command Prompt. This will open a command window, where you’ll need to change to your LifeMapper directory by typing cd\lifemapper, then pressing ENTER.
Type instsrv LifeMapper c:\lifemapper\srvany.exe and press ENTER. This will create a service called “LifeMapper”. You can substitute a different service name if you wish. If the process is successful, you’ll see the following message:
CreateService SUCCESS at creating: LifeMapper You must now go to the Registry and the Services applet in the Control Panel and edit them as per the instructions.
When you’re done, just minimize the command window, as we’ll be returning to it later in the process.
Open Regedit by clicking Start->Run, then typing regedit and pressing ENTER.
Navigate to the following registry key:
In the left pane of the registry window, click on the LifeMapper key. Then, in the right pane, right-click and choose NEW -> KEY. Name the key Parameters
In the newly-created Parameters key, right-click and choose NEW -> STRING VALUE. Name the value AppDirectory
Repeat Step 7 to create a second new string value. Name it Application
Repeat Step 7 to create a third new string value. Name it AppParameters
Double-click on the String Value “AppDirectory”. This will bring up the Modify dialog box. Set the value for AppDirectory to [b]c:\lifemapper[/b]
Double-click on the String Value “Application” Set the value for Application to c:\lifemapper\lifemapper_cmd.exe
Double-click on the String Value “AppParameters” Set the value for Application to -q -e <your LifeMapper email address> -p 64
[size=1](NOTE: The above sets the client to quiet mode, with a low/idle priority. Feel free to add/change the options as you see fit. Just look at the readme.txt file included with the LifeMapper CLI for available options.)
Stop your existing LifeMapper client(if it is running)
Return to the command window and type net start lifemapper, then press ENTER. If everything is configured correctly, you should see a message indicating that the LifeMapper service was started successfully. If you encounter any errors, the most common causes are that there is either a missing file, or one of the paths was entered incorrectly.
The newly-created LifeMapper service will now function as it always has in terms of processing, uploading, and downloading, and any monitoring software will continue to work normally.
If for any reason you should decide you want to remove the LifeMapper service, go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services. Right-click on the LifeMapper service and choose STOP. After the service is stopped, open a command-prompt window, navigate to your folding directory, and type instsrv LifeMapper remove. This will completely remove the service from your system. You can still run your LifeMapper client as you did before, as a normal application.
