I can\'t understand this change at all! Suddenly, all of my 6 computers using Linux list *every finicking detail* of the processor, causing each system to take 2/3rds of a screen. Note that the details serve no useful purpose.

Does anybody test for usability? It sure doesn\'t look like it. The current display is useless for more than two systems.

Now my computer list is essentially useless because I can only see part of two systems at a time. Is there some way to limit the display of each system to 6 lines?

I presume you upgraded your Boinc manager recently? I don\'t recall the exact version which the change was made.

It\'s a BOINC \'thing\'.

The newer versions of BOINC extract and display more data than earlier versions.
I think that there\'s another change to this in the pipeline to deal with this.

What screen resolution do you have? All your systems are fitting perfect on my 1280*1024 display.

On my PC your computer details have about 4 lines each. It depends how wide your browser screen is, resolution, and the size of fonts.

I see 8 lines for most of the descriptions. If I reduce my screen zoom level to 75% I can just see the 8 computer records all on the screen without scrolling.

With such complicated descriptions it looks like a list of supercomputers.

I believe the CPU feature set should be visible (if at all) in the computer\'s details but definitely not part of the CPU description. You\'ll have to balk at the BOINC developers if you want it changed in the next major release.

The machines, all AMD, eight in total, fit on my screen.

AMD in XP upchucks less detail. Linux vomits most. Whatever, it\'s a boinc issue, not a CPDN issue, as DJStarfox notes.

Thanks to all for the updates. I\'ll add an item to the BOINC list so they can fix it.
