    Aloha,

    I am tried of wasting my VALUABLE CPU CRUNCHING TIME on a Project that seems to NEVER have any WORK AVAILABLE...

    If there is NOT going to be ANY \"WU\'s\" for Mac OS X Platform... Then I am NOT willing to let my CPU sit there and keep Checking/Updating for WORK that is NEVER there...

    Watching a \"Status Countdown Clock\" is about as much FUN as having Constipation... So What Gives???

    I am a Sad SZTAKI Cruncher that is about to Detach...

    Let\'s get our act together folk\'s... I can understand that sometimes Server\'s/CPU\'s Crash or Die or Etc... But CPU Time is Valuable... So, Let\'s Get To Work...

    If your System is NOT going to produce enough \"WU\'s\" for the Mac OS X Platform, then PLEASE put up a POST that gives us an idea about what is going on...

    Mahalo,

      Part of life with an alpha/beta project is that there will not always be work, as things get built/sorted out. RALPH (Rosseta Alpha) is also little different (except their WUs come in batches and then none) though the main Rosseta project always has work.

      This is also why meny people attach to more then 1 project, so when work isn\'t available on 1, their computer can crunch another.

        That doesn\'t make sense. Since there\'s no work available to be crunched, how can it be wasting your CPU time?

        My machines have been waiting for work for a couple of weeks, for the most part, but meanwhile they\'re still crunching for other projects. I guess SDG has been accumulating long-term debt, so will get the lion\'s share of CPU time once work is available again (it\'s expected tomorrow), but crunching is crunching, regardless ...

          Aloha,
          We are presently in an \"intermediate step\" (new algorithm, new application, server more powerful... and little problems)
          So for now it\'s no work for any plaform since many days even if the wu generator is enabled (you get probably the message : No work sent, there was work but it was committed to other platforms)
          Perhaps the project gives the feeling that it\'s an alpha or a beta project but \"usually\" it\'s in production.
          All we are waiting for new work.
          So don\'t be sad and frustated.
