Woke up this morning to find all my computers furiously crunching nothing but MW. Scrambled to figure out what had happened. Somehow I got USE CPU turned on and also that my RESOURCE SHARE had been changed from 75 to 300. I did not make these changes. MW flipped those settings all on its own.
I ended up with a new 1.42 application along with my original 1.43 Nvidia app and 3 days of unwanted work. Reset the project.

Anybody have something similar happen overnight?

I just checked and mine did not reset, maybe it's time to keep an eye on your passwords?

I thought about that. Whether someone had hacked my account. I then figured it was a database screwup or something. I have seen instances where the database cross-connected two accounts. I will continue to monitor things here for a while. MW is the one project that I can basically set it and forget it. I don't usually drop in unless the work is not available for some reason or every couple of months to read up on any changes. Not much changes here on MW. I don't even bother with the forums since they hardly ever have anything of relevance to me to investigate.
