My E5410 rig has more than 12 tasks remaining.
My NAS rig has 4 extra units. It's enough for it since it's a single-core.
My i7 920 unit has 6 extra units.

It seems fine to me.

I run HFC, HCC, DDDT, & the clean energy & am getting work from all of them.(well not the clean eneergy right now).

If you go into boinc, preferences, network usage & set your additional work buffer to 5 days or so you should get plenty of work & never run out.

Now if you guys just leave boinc alone, it will straighten itself out(usually). But I would set the work buffer to 5 days. All my rigs run 10 day buffers.

I also checked the WCG forums & there seems to be no problems right now. I will keep on eye on it.

In the course of checking machines out for the above issue, I found Farm-11 to be down. Looks like a HD right now but it seems to be behaving very slowly booting a USB DVD op sys disc. Might be something more. Mem or Mobo. It's got Patriots on an MSI Neo-F....

I'll probably blow the CMOS out after I run Memtest....

Goes to show that you can lose HW anytime doing this....Good to have spares in the junk pile.

Crap! Log into my main rig this morning & have a message on the desktop sayn Vista recovered from an unexpected error....:confused:

I dont know how long it was down for...was on last night around 8pm.

So my biggest bitch is that it didnt crunch all night! :banghead:

It seems to be running fine now....
If you run as service it goes even when nobody is logged on.

Yup! I thought I had it in my start folder...Im the only one on this rig. It has been running for 13 days w/o a reboot. Dont know why it rebooted though...need to dig into it when i get home.

All my other rigs run it as a service...dont know why I didnt on this one.

Fits, You're doing fine.....:toast:

The team page you linked, the overall team rankings, shows our current, correct team rank in relation to other teams.

The top line on the individual team stats page always seems to be behind on overall team rank. So you can keep using the overall team rankings page to report the placement of the overall team if you want. As Rammie points out, the individual team stats page does show our accurate "opportunities" list....So, we would usually be one behind the first other team listed on that page in "opportunities".

I never noticed this page placement stats difference on DC-Stats before coming here. XS is stuck at a static 3rd place. We don't see moving for a while.

Bob

BTW, Farm-11 is getting a new HD as we speak....It will be back up in a bit.

EDIT: Hehe, if this is confusing, ignore it. I'm not sure I understand what I said myself.....:eek::laugh:

You should get out and about once in a while!
It's easier to get other people interested in the projects.Look how the interest at TPU is taking off.Myself will be staying until top 100 if the other old-time members of TPU keep contributing so they can get their recognition and own subforum.Remember in the end it all goes in the same pot.
