The new clients' buffer is now limited to 200 blocks (thanks guys!). You
can max it out through -config or by editing the ini. On a P6-233 it takes
~26.5 hours to work through 200 blocks. On a P5-100 - ~5.5 days. You can
launch another copy of client with -update every time you dial up. This
will cost you exactly nothing if you do it every time you check your email.
If you're considering a long vacation you can try writing a sofisticated
script that would swap buffer files or perhaps a dial-on-demand feature.
Now let me scream a bit.
THE QUESTIONS OF THIS TYPE ARE FAQ QUESTIONS!!! THEY SHOULD BE ADDED TO THE
FAQ!!! PEOPLE WHO ASK THEM SHOULD READ THE FAQ AND CONSERVE BANDWIDTH!!!
