Default Work types in "Computers and Notes" table

I have a computer with multiple cores which is registered for multiple work types. In the Computers and Notes report it is listed as WMS under the work type column. What does this stand for?

Further to this... The Primenet API protocol is such that there is a general work type per machine. This is what most configurations use.

However, the overall machine's work type can be overridden by a work type per thread. This allows the overall work-preference for a machine to be, for example, "What Makes Sense" (WMS), but one thread preferring DC, another LL, etc.

Any changes on the client are communicated to the server through "Program Option" messages. The proxy picks these up, and honors them.

Extensions to the web pages are under development to make all of this more explicit -- including drill-down on each computer listing what each thread's work type preference is, etc. Unfortunately, "real life" has consumed quite a bit of my time the last week or so....
