You see also something strange? ;-)

There are two settings for CPU and GPU.

I wanted to set 'home' no CPU, I set both to NO (unchecked) but after save the bottom CPU is YES.

Why is there two times CPU and GPU entries?


Also if I tested some settings at 'home' and 'work', immediately after save all separated settings were deleted. Only primary settings available.

I looked now at SETI@home BETA, there is only the upper CPU/GPU entry.

So why have SETI@home MAIN a double CPU/GPU entry?

Mods, what you think?

Maybe this thread would be better for the Q&A-website subforum?

If you look at the title of this thread, you can see that it's not the right place. :-)

On the SETI homepage and in the technical news, you can read why SETI currently has no tasks available.
