Expert Mode just disables access to other channels.

It does more than that. Requests bigger work units.

I didn't know there was an expert mode, and simply thought the original poster had mistaken the term expert for advanced.

So there is an Expert Mode? How do you enable that in the fah client?

Expert Mode:

Triangle > General Settings > Folding@home Priority


Options:

Folding@home Normal Mode - all channels available

Disable Folding@home - no FAH, all other channels available

Folding@home Expert Mode - no other channels available


I use Expert so those channels I never use don't steal any precious cycles from fah... :wink:
