Upload servers down most of last week.
I have ADSL -with emphasis on the A - asymmetric - only less than 1 Mbit upload bandwidth.

The BOINC client only offers two options for network connectivity - either off or on. No choice for specific projects.

So - when CPDN upload servers down - either I cut the BOINC client off the net
(and give up any way to get work from non-CPDN sites)
OR - I leave the client retrying pointless uploads that clog my cheapo ADSL.

I've got about 5 GB to upload - but the failed uploads that keep retrying totally ruin my "Internet experience"

How to poison my dns cache? for the broken upload servers?
