BOINC 6.2.18 upgrade

Following on from last nights LAN upgrade I ran around updating the version of BOINC (which is the framework software used for all this distributed processing). I had version 5.10.45 on all my machines, but the current release version is 6.2.18 which has been out for a few weeks now.

Its not hard to upgrade the machines, just takes a bit of time to do each of them. While I was at it I took the opportunity to apply windows patches, delete log files and defrag the hard disks.

The basic software on my crunching machines is Windows XP Pro and BOINC. For Seti I also use the optimised application (AK_v8). Both Einstein and Orbit are running the "stock" application provided by the project.
