    Hey all,

    I would like to run(have ran) SZTAKI Desktop Grid on a few Pentium II 266MHz systems (I am running other BOINC projects on other Pentium II 266MHz systems). But, I have noticed in the last week that most of these systems running only SZTAKI workunits say that they will go over the deadline.
    I don\'t really have any better systems I can run SZTAKI on, but I would like to run it.
    Is there nothing I can do besides get better systems to run SZTAKI on?

      There were apparently some very long WUs at the end of last month (I believe the first ones for dimension-12), with over-optimistic deadlines. I was fortunate enough to sign up right at the end of that batch, and for the past few days the WUs have been extremely short--only a few minutes each--with five days allowed, so if you don\'t let your cache get too large even a slowish machine should do fine.

      I\'ve had a look at your computer pages: of the Pentium IIs, hosts #9964 & #13005 have already missed their deadlines and the WUs seem to have been deleted from the database, so you can just write those results off (you\'ve been \'penalized\' by having your quota reduced from 500 to 499) and get some new work; #13114 & #11499 seem to be doing fine with the short WUs that have been coming out since the beginning of the month.

        I see. Thank you very much for your reply!
        So I am assuming it would be OK to reattach to the SZTAKI project without the fear of running over the deadline again?

          The new WUs are running about 8 to 11 minutes on my amd3000 and amd1600.
          You should have no trouble running these. Adam has said that he is shooting for 1 hour WUs by slowly increasing WU times.
