Thats the only thing I can think of, to slow down automatic work unit acquiring by the clients. Reran benchmarks on computers and didn't change much. As far as the effect on my caching, its a good change for my P3 1.1, it was downloading far more WU than it should have been caching, the benchmarking for it seems to be far off.

I can't believe what an efficient performer the Laptop is. That 1 MB L2 cache seems to make all the difference, as its a 400mhz bus and a 1.4 Ghz processor. These numbers taken from overnight crunching, i.e., computers not in heavy use.
