I think the client and proxy should have something like the GIMPS vacation
feature.  Have the option of setting a vacation, that way the client can
readjust and get enough blocks for the entire vacation then when the
vacation is over just reset to the normal, automatic setting.

-Thank goodness that 'feature' has not been put in the clients YET!  I can

-Take a cue (clue) from Windows.  Automatic is NOT always better!  Unless it

-hate Windows (re)setting things because IT knows better than I do about my

-that software is not so smart!

-My opinion, but apparently the viewpoint of others.
