Suddenly all my computers are being loaded with enhanced 6.03 work units. I had my preferences set
to NOT do these types. Now I cannot change the settings. Everytime I uncheck the enhanced box, update then check again the enhanced box is checked again. And yes I am updating every computer and getting same responses.
I can't afford to tie up my computers for 12 to 24 hours per WU.

I just tried changing the setting on the web site, and had no problem. Did you actually save the changes with the button at the bottm of the page?

Why would you attach a computer without GPU to a project if you don't want to process CPU tasks?

and if he decided to turn off the computer thats fine too. the newer seti_enhanced Wu's have double the sensitivity of the ones from a few weeks ago. The credits have also been doubled so you aren't wasting time on a WU. my slower computers take about that much time as well. I don't understand what the big deal is. We are all volunteers here so we are all aware that we are spending extra money by having our CPU's running at full speed.
