I recently had this issue as well. All three computers were XP boxes.

Work Unit 6666. My result ID 19997. It shows success, but also claims it is Invalid.

I can accept Invalid if the reason for the invalidation was clear.



That\'s cool. No answer for three days. Not even a, \"Hey, we\'ll check into that for you.\"

That\'s fine. Drop.

Although I would not use the same language, I do echo his sentiments.

I Have set my General prefs to 1 day cache and SZTAKI specifically to 8% in the manager. All of the units I have recieved in the latest batch are taking between 3.5 and 5 hours.

This is on a fast machine.

The most recent flood consisted of 30-odd WUs. Even at 3 hours per WU, that\'s 90 hours - much much more than 24, wouldn\'t you say? At 8%, the server should have recognized that I didn\'t want 30 WUs at any time.

Because of this, SZTAKI will not allow other projects to run. These are projects which, by now, would have completed their WU, and given me more credit. Yes, I do care about the science, but credit is recognition for work done and I like to be recognized for work done. It so happens that BOINC uses credits to show this recognition. A 5 hour WU for SZTAKI gives me 40 credits - A 1 hour WU for SETI gives me a little over 18 - hmmmmm 18 times 5 equals 90. And SETI plays nice, too.
