Default work to do...

Hi all!
Recentely I switch my team on DC job. Right now Primenet is givin' out exp.s around 8.3/8.5 mio for DC. The server itself doesn't seems to allow each client has more than 20 exp queued in wortodo.ini file. Since the fastest Pc do take roughly one month to DC 20 of these exp.s, no way to get more job but switch once again to LL testing? I'm asking it 'cause two or more of these PC won't have an internet connection available for a while...
Regards

Yes, 20 is the default (limited by the client, not the server). But from undoc.txt:
[code:1]The program will restrict how many exponents can be added to worktodo.ini.
To override this, change prime.ini:
MaxExponents=n[/code:1]
You might also want to set "vacation days" to however long the machines will not be connected, so the server won't expect any results until then.

Hope that helps,
Steve
