    Definitely one of the more frustrating projects

    It seems to have taken an age for me to get close to 100K on this project. Much slower than others for some reason. I'm @94K on my home page with about a couple of K left in buffers and 6K pending, so switching to the next project to get to 100K

    Anyone else doing this kind of push to get to a certain level in each project ? Be it 10K, 50K, 100K or whatever ?

    Joined this one late. In fact, it seems that, as of now, only Moogie, JasonG and I are active. However, it is rather appealing, scientifically, so I'm going to run it for a while.

    I've found a trick that helps. Every now and then, depending on how many clients & machines you have active, a task will get hung up, but YOU WON'T KNOW IT! There doesn't seem to be an effective detection mechanism other than looking at the status screen at regular intervals. The key that a task is hung is that the sum of the CPU Time and the Time To Completion is way more than the Average Run Time. The Average is listed for all WU's that haven't started yet.

    When you see this condition, you can safely Abort that task and let it move on to the next. You've wasted some time, but saved yourself from wasting a lot more.

    Cheers!

    ...AND, I've currently got four 3.0GHz CPU's on this and I'm getting about 2 of the above-mentioned errors daily. Back to
