    Sorry Adam, just a joke.

    -----------------------------------------------------
    !!! Attention !!!
    If your WU\'s not returned in 5 days ---> then
    E.T. is coming and nobody can escape from hungary ???
    -----------------------------------------------------

    BTW : I see no reason why the deadline is set to 5 days.

    I have to abort 25 WU\'s on my Notebook cause i\'m not able to
    return these long WU\'s in 5 days.
    On 3 Hosts my BOINC Client runs in Panic Mode to finish the WU\'s

    what happens if the reportdeadline ist set to 14 days ???

        The problem here--the version I\'m having anyway--doesn\'t seem to be with the length of the WUs per se, but with the sudden increase in size that caused the BOINC clients to be over-optimistic about how many could be completed before their deadlines. I have at least one hopelessly overcommitted machine, from which I\'ll be deleting three hundred or more WUs on Wednesday when they expire; AFAICT it downloaded them on the assumption that they\'d take just a few minutes each like the previous batch, but in fact they\'re running anywhere from 2.5 to 6 hours, an order of magnitude or two longer than expected.

        Given a correct estimation of the time, the current deadlines would be no problem at all. When the project is changing the size of WUs being sent out, though, I would suggest that either the allowed time be temporarily increased or quotas temporarily decreased, to give BOINC a chance to adapt to the change before it takes on more work than can be accomplished in time.

          Long wus with \"many\" projects on a machine and a short deadline are not easy also.
          Later (i hope soon) when the size of the wus will have been \"fixed\", things will be easier.
          Increasing (again) (but) temporarly the deadline would help probably (when you catch wus with sudden increase in size).
          For now, my only solution has been to reduce the size of work cache (1.5 -> 0.5 day on my machines) and disable the work requests since i\'m running long wus (-> 5h).
