Now I like "next-unit-percentage", minimizes downtime and my machines can crunch nonstop.

Cookie+ since I can't give you rep smile.gif

Yea I like that option, I believe default is 98% or 99%.
Just have to be careful if folding bigadv, cause if you put it too low then it will download way too early and will result in a small loss of bonus points.
