I used to manually download workunits using the commandline client, then cut and paste the required files into a folder. I had like 10 workunits at a
time. I would process 1 until it's done, then cut and paste the required files into another folder (to send folder), then cut and paste a new
workunit into the folder with the .exe file and process again. When I connected to the internet (once a day), I would cut and paste them into the
folder with the .exe file and send them all one by one. I don't have to do any of this anymore, but I usually keep 1 extra workunit with me in case
Berkeley's servers go down. BOINC will solve this problem by caching workunits (as much as you want).
