I'm on dialup and connect a few times a day. The problem I have is when I connect I usally have several
WU's ready to upload. The only one that is uploaded is the last one done. Any others are ignored. This happened the other nite with all units done, the first was uploaded the second sat in cache and I had nothing to run and was dead in the water. I had to end up restarting Seti to get new units. There are posts about a manual upload, that must be in Windows as the only way to get this stupid thing going again is shut it off and re-start it.Can you fix this,Please.

If you're using Linux, after you make your dial-up connection stop boinc and restart it with the -return_results_immediately flag and it should then upload everything that's ready to go. That however will not automatically get you more work units - that still has to be timed to coincide with a low-water mark.
