1) Message boards : Number crunching : Why do I have 25 workunits queued? (Message 48520)

I figured it out. Somewhere I found the setting to maintain enough workunits for x number of days. It had been set to 5 which wasn't really a lot of work on my old machine. I guess when I set up BOINC the new benchmarks kicked in and upped my load a lot. Thanks for yalls help.

So I got a new Macbook (2.0 Ghz + 2 gig ram) today and one of the first things I did was install BOINC. I added 3 projects, and the first time Rosetta connected I downloaded over 20 workunits. After completing one, it downloaded 3 more! The settings in my profile are set to connect every 0.1 days, so why such a backlog of work? I am worried because there is no way all these units will be completed by the deadline?

Seti and LHC@home did not download multiple workunits. On my other computer (Athlon XP2700+) my queue has 3 workunits of Seti and Rosetta waiting. Any ideas what is up?

Can somebody please explain what keys on the keyboard change what about the graphics. I am interested in both a layman's and a scientific standpoint. I don't know why this info isn't in the graphics FAQ.

All I know is B and C do different stuff. Some of the numbers do the same. Please help. Thanks,
