Hi Rob.

This is a nice feature, but when there is a survey of lets say 1000 galaxies, and I want to look at number 900, then I have to push the "next" button 60(!)times.
My suggestion is to show all the images on one page.

Give that a 10.000 galaxies and the load time for the page would be going to infinite - especially if you have a slow network line like me at home.
I suggest making 50 or 100 per page, how's that? Probably even self selectable how much you want per page?

10 per Core

Well, to me 4 or 5 per core would sound more convenient - would fit better with the other work my comps are crunching on.
Does this also apply to when you deploy the lite version? I guess these WUs would be crunched a lot faster so probably the 10 per core are suitable for this.

I've also added limits to try and stop people sucking too many units

How high did you set that?
I recognize my comp at home has got 29 WUs a while ago. Still a bit too much - at least for me.

It's version 7.0.8.
This normally doesn't have any problem with time estimations, cache etc., it's mostly the case that it gets too less WUs on other projects, it almost never fills up to my cache setting.
Don't know why I'm always getting such a bunch of WUs here.

Btw, if you would limit WUs this would have several advantages:
Everyone gets a better chance to get WUs. Obviously Viking69 didn't get any yet and vaughan probably a lot of them like me (according to their credits).
The better work distribution to more users would then lead to a faster coming back of results. Don't know if you need them as fast as possible, but if you do, you should consider it.
If you don't know how to realize WU-limiting you can ask at MilkyWay or PrimeGrid for example.

had this several times since I'm here, now I think it's time to bring it up.
The system gave my comp at home about 60 WUs this morning...
This is way too much considering the time they sometimes need, BOINC did ignore my cache setting on that completely.
I will have to cancel a lot of them, I can't crunch them all.
Would be much more fine when the number of given out WUs would be limited. Probably 2 or 4 per core or something like that.
