Today I received credit for this 1-line work unit, which took 107 hours to complete. I was the only one who returned a non-empty result, but everyone else received the same credit. Isn\'t that strange?

Look at wuid=626. It\'s a 21b342bd series WU and it validated yesterday - so it is not impossible. But, it is the first one to do so that I have seen. In fact, Result ID 294727 was the first 21b342bd series result I had ever seen that did NOT end with an \"Output is empty\" message. And that was the reason, I decided not to abort Result ID 330515 when I got it.

It\'s strange that though the minimum quorum of wuid=626 is 3, credit has been granted after only 2 valid results. Some results were were obtained using version 2.00.

I suppose that it is this one? Yes, it is a 1-line WU.

You must be ready to wait several weeks to get credit because the other 3 crunchers have restarted the WU and got the \"empty output\" message\". So it must still be reissued 2 times after you have finished.

That\'s the one. It finished after 107 hours, longer than any other workunit I could find (the longest with version 2.04 was 61 hours). I wonder if two more users will have the same patience. I\'ve got more workunits pending with shorter running times. Of the 1-liners I processed none have gotten credit granted so far.

If you\'re planning to restart BOINC or your computer in following 40hours it will fail with \"empty output\"

It looks like there\'s no decent checkpointing.

I\'ve had several work units with version 2.04 with running times between 22 minutes and 26 hours, but now I have a work unit already running 40 hours and still at 0%. Should I abort it?

So both Boinc and Sztaki need them! I found older versions in system32 only. Thanks.

I found msvcp71.dll and msvcr71.dll both in \\Program File\\Boinc and \\Program Files\\BOINC\\projects\\szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu_szdg. Are they necessary in both locations?

I got the same message: no disk space (you must free 1029.2 MB before BOINC gets space)
while I have several gigabytes of space left.

Both of my computers display a number instead of the correct venue, e.g.:
18-12-2005 11:10:56|Predictor @ Home|Computer ID: 49423; location: school; project prefs: default
18-12-2005 11:10:56|SETI@home|Computer ID: 1245008; location: school; project prefs: default
18-12-2005 11:10:56|SZTAKI Desktop Grid|Computer ID: 1237; location: 307758.31884; project prefs: default

Changing the location on the website has no effect.

I wasn't pleased with those e-mails either. It's against the rules on http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/info.php:

Adam, this is a misunderstanding. The resource share, not the deadline, determines how many units a computer will process, unless people leave the project because the deadline is too short...

Computers subscribed to more projects need longer deadlines. See http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/index.php?title=Work_Scheduler#BOINC_Work_Fetch_and_CPU_Policy_Design for an explanation how the deadline depends upon the number of projects. A deadline shorter than a week seems to be unusable.
