I recently started crunching numbers and I'm experiencing computational errors on this project only. I don't run my PC 24/7 so its a given that I'll be suspending work and resuming at a later time. I haven't experienced this with any of the other projects I participate with. They all store WIP and resume without issue. Looks like I've now logged 87 errors to date. Any advice?

Try not suspending the work, just shut down Boinc, the pc, or whatever it is you do when you aren't crunching, and then let Boinc pick it back up again on it's own when you start crunching again. With checkpointing you should only lose a little bit of the units progress, but may end up being ahead in the long run if they stop having problems.
