For now this version has also a bug : the "no new work" doesn't work any longer.
=========

It seems to work for me, at least it changes to Allow New Work when I click on No New Work. I'll leave it on Allow New Work & see it it gives me any when it's not supposed to ...

PS: The Manager turned in 2 WU's and didn't Download any new work until I clicked to Allow New Work again, so as far as I can tell the No New Work Feature works for me anyway ...

I just downloaded a SZTAKI WU with BOINC v5.1.1 installed, so it seems we will still be able to run the Project with the new version. I haven't finished a WU with it yet though to see what happens when I turn it in ...

I have no Problem with the 4 day Deadline Adam, it was the under-estimation of the Completion Time for the WU's I downloaded that messed me up. I just backed of my Connect Setting & that should take care of it ...

@Rebirther, it's not the Validators fault you got 0 Credits for that WU, there was some sort of error with the WU is the reason why. Maybe Adam will explain why there was an error or what the error was ...

Adam, the Times given for completion are way off. Most of my Computers say it will take about 1:30:00 to complete the WU's when Downloaded but in fact it's taking me closer to 4 Hours to complete 2 of them in HT Mode.

I had my Preferences set to 2 days and the server gave me close to 5 days of WU's, I will simply not be able to complete the WU's within the Deadlines that they give ... :(

It appears that the windows/linux results are matching up =) thanks Adam
=========

Yes it seems so, I haven't had a WU with 0 Credit in about 24 hr's now... :)

@Poorboy
That what you say is wrong!
Why you say that windows clients are or should be used for
validating only?
Why you think that only the windows clients give the right result?
What about if the windows clients would be wrong
==========

Eerrrgggg...Where did I ever say that the Windows Client should be used for validating only or the Windows Client only gives the right Result. I was just using the WU's that I have 0 Credit for as an example of how those WU's are being Validated for One OS or the other.

I'm trying to straighten it out for both OS so when they are processed together both OS get Credit and not just one of them. As far as being able to find a WU where both the Linux & Windows OS got Credit I haven't been able to do so yet ...

PS: I take that back about not being able to find one in my Account, I noticed I haven't had a 0 Credit WU for awhile now so I started going through the Validated ones and ran across this <a href="http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=3459">WU</a> &amp; this <a href="http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=3451">WU</a> where both a Linux &amp; Windows Client did receive Credit for the WU. Maybe the Dev's finally made some changes to allow the 2 OS to coexist and both receive Credit when processed together...???

I've noticed with a lot of my 0 Credit WU's that 4 of the 5 Client's the WU is sent to are Windows Clients yet the lone Linux Client gets the only Credit. Wheres the Redundancy when this happens. The 4 Windows Clients are marked Invalid yet the Validator marks the Linux Client Valid and gives out the Credit to it with no Redundancy ...

How can the Project call it Redundancy when only 1 Client out of 5 is marked valid...!!!

If the Validator is using the Windows Clients for it's Redundancy Check &amp; then In-Validating them then the Server should be sending out the WU again until another Linux Client picks it up and returns it for Redundancy I would think.

On the other hand if the Validator is using the Windows Clients for Redundancy and saying there is Redundancy then the Windows Clients should be marked Valid and given Credit I would think...???

I have Patients Nightbird or I wouldn't have close to 1,000,000 Credits already &amp; would have left the Projects a long time ago.

I'm just pointing out the continual problem with the 2 OS where 1 of them receives no credit when the same WU is run on both OS's. If the problem can't be fixed then they need to separate the 2 OS's and run separate WU's for each of them like several of the other Projects do.

Right now I'm running at about a 12%-13% Rate for WU's that are Granted no Credit because of the Linux &amp; Windows conflict, I'm showing 7 WU's out of 58 Validated WU's with 0 Granted Credit because somebody with a Linux OS turned in their WU first.

If this Project ever expects to attract a larger Client Base things like this will need to be rectified for it to continue to grow. People at the other Projects watch whats going on here and at any other Projects they would like to join but as long as things like this goes on they are content to stay where they are at &amp; who can blame them.

PS: I was wrong in thinking it was the OS that the WU got turned in with first was the one that got granted the credit &amp; the other OS was out of luck. As you can see by this <a href="http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2995">WU</a> 2 people with Windows turned in their WU before the person with the Linux OS turned in his, yet the person with the Linux OS got the Credit &amp; the people with the Windows OS got 0 Credit. Luck of the draw I guess...???
