I would be very nice to be able to send the results back and not receive more work until a suitable time. Why?. I have a number of machines. They run 24*7 and usually only get connected back to the internet every 4/5 days. So, with the current set up I can only upload 1 or two computers at once. And the first thing they do is try to download another batch of work.
With my current setup of seti 1 I can send all the results back and set the download off at night when I dont need to use the internet for other things.

When that dam message tab goes blue and flashes why cannot the tab spool down to the last message when you click on it instead of making the user click on the slider to see the message!!!!

Its the little things in life ....

I also have this question, because I turn off my computer when I go on holiday. I don't want to download any wu's that I cannot finish in time.
