Default max exponents assigned.

Exerpt from readme.text: "...The "Always have at least
this many days of work queued up" value should be changed based on
how often you connect to the Internet. As long as you connect at least
once in the given time period, prime95 will have an uninterrupted stream
of work. However, the program will not checkout more than 20 exponents
no matter what this value is set at."

Does the "not check out more than 20 exponents" condition include if you are running Prime95 on multiple computers without setting up a team?

If you edit the worktodo.ini to take an expo from one machine to a different one, then the machine thinks that it has less. If you are using one machine with 'net access to feed others, the manual forms might be best. Otherwise, you can let the program get 20 expos, stop P95, edit the worktodo.ini to remove those expos and give to other machines, restart p95 and get more expos.

You don't have to make a team, you should make sure each computer has a unique ID though.

No, it's 20 per machine.
