I won, I won, I won!!! :) So now:

It is time for a new episode of that much-beloved pastime of Collatz@Home forum: "Last One to Post Wins"

For you newbies, here are the rules:
1. To participate in the game, you must post to the prescribed thread.
2. A post must consist of at least one word.
3. A participant may not have two or more consecutive posts in the thread.
4. The winner of an episode is responsible for organizing the next episode and for choosing the winner of that episode.
5. The winner may be chosen on the basis of the date/time of the post, the number of the post in the thread (50th post; 31415th post; ...), the presence/absence of a particular word/phrase in the post, or any other reason selected by the organizer of the episode. However, the organizer of an episode is prohibited from winning that particular episode.
6. Have fun! And everyone be safe out there!

Steve

Sorry, Steve - I think *I* am the winner!


Hey David! Never got a chance to welcome you back after being gone for so long. I hope you do win :)

How much "stuff" have you got crunching now?

I have a very strong suspicion this is the winning post. So I'm claiming it as mine.

Oh, so sorry. That's just not going to happen :).

I'm seeing a glimmer of action. All my WUs stats are zeroed except for in progress, invalid, and error WUs. Could be something happening soon.

Yup -- same here -- I doubt they will be corrected for credit as well.

Sort of makes me happy I went on suspect mode for processing until this gets resolved.


Oh ye of little faith! Jon has always made good when he can. Don't give up just yet :)

Your filtering efforts have seemed to have had the unfortunate side effect of invalidating all the my "pending validation" WUs :(. Here's hoping you're successful and the side effects are temporary :). Lovely way to spend the 4th, Jon. Again, I can't thank you enough for the effort and support you offer to the BOINC community!

OK. This seems majorly weird, but I have been getting an occasional valid WU (only 1 today) since this started. But only WUs from one machine, an older Core i7 950. Same GPUs as in other machines, same version of BOINC, same OS (Windows 10). Can't explain it.

@David Reese: won't be passing you for at least a few more days :)

@mikey: should I look to see if I have any old MB around you could use. I used to run a dual 1366 Xeon machine; not sure what I did with the parts.

Winning

(P.S. @Katherine: I'm not good with names/faces either. Adds to the stress)

I don't think it's a lack of WUs. According to the messages when asking for work, I'm requesting a bunch of time, but the server isn't returning any work. Thinking maybe the host is marked not reliable or something.

Wonder if this machine has been marked "unreliable" or something else such that the server won't download WUs to it?
