Me too! I\'m part of about 20 projects, and every single one gives me work units for my 8-core x64 windows machine, excpet Sztaki! If the others are doing it it can\'t be a problem. Vista 64 runs 32 bit code after all....

My 8 cores are awaiting.....

Now I\'m even more confused. The first post in that thread says \"AMD, Intel, or Via CPUs\". So Intels have a problem aswell? The most popular chip doesn\'t work with the project?!?

Secondly, I have two machines on this project - an Athlon FX62 2.4GHz (underclocked from 2.8GHz for stability), and an Intel Pentium 4 D (dual core) 2.8GHz. Both have a similar error rate (about 20-30% of WUs get computation error after about 30 hours, the working WUs take an hour and a bit).

I also see mention of versions 2.01 and 2.02 - I\'ve got 2.00.......

If a quorum of 3 successful results does not reach the server, it cannot grant any credits. To overcome this I grant credits for such workunits once every month. Be patient please, if you\'ve claimed credit, the server or me will have it granted.

If you don\'t get some results back on time, are they then queued to be resent to another computer/user?

On the Sztaki website select \"Your account\", then \"View computers\", then select a computer you want to merge, then \"merge this computer\" and there you can select the computers you want the first one to be merged with.

Got it, thanks.
I\'ll leave the two machines running only this project for a while and see what happens.

Doing that is fine, but it has no influence on the credits for your previous job.

I was just trying to get a big wadge of WUs queued up for credit.
Those will be granted as soon as 3 identical results have come in, even if you stopped crunching from now on. You have nothing to do and you can\'t even do anything to get them. Just wait (up to several weeks) and you will get them. You will notice that, because of the quorum requirements, Sztaki is not suited to impatient people. Projects with lower quorum requirements and/or smaller work units are able to grant the credits faster.

I\'m not impatient, I just thought there was a problem with the project.
In fact I wasn\'t even able to post here until I emailed the webmaster and he fixed a missing file error. Not sure how other people were posting....

- Try to merge your computers


How do I do this?


- On this project, the minimum quorum = 3 so you need to wait others users


I see. I\'ll leave the two machines running only this project for a while and see what happens.

Am I right in thinking I\'ve completed 60 WUs today? I don\'t think that\'s right, the computers are taking about two hours to complete each one and I only started them off earlier today. Although I see one of the computer\'s stats shows 30 results all sent at once. Are they corrupt ones again?

I\'m not sure how to view my stats, but I appear to have loads of computers, all called the same thing. I only have ONE blue and ONE fx62.....

I don\'t understand the \"disk usage exceeded\" - another project is using 0.5GB successfully. It ain\'t me limiting it!

You say I have 3 correct results, but I still see no points.

I think they came up as corrupted. I\'ll force the downloaded ones to run now before the other projects and see what they do.....

I never get any credits from this project, even though I have two dual processor machines which have done many work units. What\'s happening?

As far as I can see you downloaded 63 WUs, but sent in only 3 finished results. You will not get credits for the WUs not crunched, nor for those ended in error (whatever the reason for the error), nor for the 2 WUs that you finished after 0.14 seconds (you earned 2*0.000508181300147781 credits, but the figure is truncated to 2 decimals). The only WU that will give you credit is this one. As soon as the validator has 3 identical results, you will get your credits instantly. The third WU is not yet sent out, so you need some patience (maybe several weeks).


The question is, why are all the WUs screwing up? 1 succesful out of 63? There is something seriously wrong with this project. I\'m on several projects and none of the others repeatedly fail WUs. Occasionally yes, but not 62/63.
