Once approach the boinc developers may or may not have thought of is the "minimal feedback" aproach from the system.

I do believe they tried that route with earlier versions of BOINC, and people complained that they wanted more info. It's hard to strike a balance when you have two camps complaining loudly.

do we need to ride the suspend network activity button? probably not, but its there. have option will fiddle.

Just want to mention that another reason that button is there is for folks like myself that are still stuck with dialup internet access. If I don't suspend net activity when I disconnect, not only do the logs fill up like NYC did with rain over the last few days, but the retry time for uploads increases, and it might take days to upload a result if I'm not online during the retry window.
