I have just received a new work unit, solo-collatz 4.04 with a time remaining of 513:13:15, but only seven days to complete the task?! Can this be right or has this work unit become corrupted somehow?

If the application doesn't error out immediately, then the WU is not corrupt. However, the solo_collatz WUs are the same size as the collatz WUs which are 8 times larger than the mini_collatz. So, if a mini_collatz takes 5 hours, then the solo_collatz will take 40 hours.

Unfortunately, when I added the solo_collatz application, BOINC defaults to enabling it for all users. That wasn't really what I had in mind. For now, I've deprecated the solo CPU apps. You may either complete the ones you have or abort them. If, after a few hours, BOINC's estimate doesn't match reality, feel free to abort the work unit. The Collatz app's progress are linear so if after 2 hours it is 3% complete, it will take 66.6 hours (100/3 percent * 2 hours * 60 minutes = 4000 minutes = 66.67 hours.

Thanks. I think I'll abort the ones that look beyond my capability to complete in the time allowed.
