Ok here it is:
when the parsing queue becomes too large OE can slow down all the system.
The other drawback of large parsing queue is that if I need to restart the comp I should wait for the entire queue to clear otherwise I wouldn`t be able to save project.
I was thinking that there is no reason to continue downloading more files than OE can swallow,
So what about a little check box that says:
Stop downloading if Parsing queue reaches X files, or keep parsing queue below X files...
where X is a parameter which every user chooses for himself.
It depends pretty much on the website,
some projects don`t slow down even with 200,000 queue (but still a problem remains when i need to restart the computer)
Other can start slow down already above 30,000 files.
Thats why I think a variable X is the best solution.
> Frankly, I am not sure that this should be added to the Options dialog. I can add it easily to be setup either in Registry or command-line. What do you think?

Thanks a lot!
It`s a pleasure to work with u Oleg, you make the requested changes in a matter of days (unlike some other products developers that i work with).
I put it in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\Offline Explorer Pro\Parameters
ParsingMax REG_DWORD 10
The parsing queue increases indefinitely.
Moreover the latest beta very unstable, it stacks almost immediately. U can try it on any site with a lot of links, and small files. I tried it on www.ebay.com and after downloading 103 files it stacked. I will send u my sample project and registry settings, maybe I am doing something wrong, although before everything worked fine. (btw I tried the www.ebay.com with and without the new registry key)
