How can I set this to only use my GPU?  My CPU is basically useless for folding, but is still turning my office into a sauna.

were you see the add and remove just hilite your cpu and then remove it

Sorry, a couple other questions:

  1. Does it hurt anything to pause the folding?  I do need to use my computer occasionally, but I've been trying to schedule it only when the WU are completed.
  2. Are the WU's different length?  It seems like they're getting longer each time.  My first two were both under 2 hours long, and they've been getting longer.  The two I'm doing right now are both over 6 hours.  I'm not sure if my hardware is wearing down.

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

i never had a problem pausing it then to go gaming and such you can also idle it too

I know how to see the jobs currently being done, but is there any way to see jobs you might have already completed and what the research was?

I've published a pdf guide to install the FAHClient on Ubuntu or Mint 20.

Many changes from earlier versions, includes:

fixing Python and GTK dependencies.

OpenCL install 

Updating Nvidia drivers

patching FAHClient (simple, one line of code)

web client access, etc.
