It was sent to a computer running Intel Atom/Nvidia Ion.

Prefs were set to get Micros and the if not available accept something else. It takes 4 hours to do a Mini on the Ion, 3 hours for a Micro on the Atom. As luck would have it, when the scheduler wouldn't give the Ion a Micro it gave it a Large instead...estimated run time of 1000 hours. Perhaps this is the great flood.

Not complaining, just laughing. :-)

Might be wise to uncheck "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?", eh?

I thought that it would be better to give my GPU work rather than run dry, so I added Mini to the list of acceptable apps. And then turned off "If no work..." Running Minis for two days on my CPU is an acceptable concession. At least those will be returned within the deadline. I just never thought the scheduler would send a large to that computer.

What GPU is taking two days to get through a mini?
