I'm not sure if this will help you but recently I've found that 'Suspending' all tasks before shutting down / restarting
usually prevents running tasks from crashing out, and 'Restoring' tasks after the restart has completed its activities.

Hope this is of use but anyway, a Happy New Year to all crunchers and admins.

I suppose I'll have to be the lone dissenter. I have an old Mac Pro upgraded to 8 cores of 2.66Ghz Xeon goodness with a Quadro FX 3800. It takes (or rather did) 45 minutes on the GPU and 12 hours on the CPU. I get not far off 5000 points per WU. Today I find my work stack has few jobs in it and according to the log my work cache is full. Confused I finally realise a GPU task is taking 6 hours and a CPU one 100 hours !!! I was given no warning of this and am rather pi**ed off. What happens if my rig spends 99 hours on a job and there's a computing/validation error?? Guess it's find another project time.


My old Dell got two tasks this p.m. with remaining hours of 8+ DAYS to run!
I think not! I've changed it to Micro Coll.. and rejected the huge tasks.
I'll be watching my other toys very carefully over the next week Ho Ho Ho.

Hello, Check again and look at the original deadlines for these tasks. I see they are all
18th Dec at various times. On that date & their times the credit will be granted to you.

I've had it happen to me a number and it seems to work out fine that way for me so far.
I'm currently waiting on 38 tasks dated 17th & 18th Dec. I'm quite sure they'll all be fine.

see https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/results.php?hostid=150370 - validation pending,
click task details & you'll see my task deadlines, which when passed, credit will be granted.

Don't know why but it just happens to be that way these days, kind regards.

Hi Guys, What I've noticed in the past when this happens from time to
time is that when the original drop dead date passes, these tasks get
picked up and credit is allocated in the normal way eg. task 118931056
deadline is 18 Dec 2016, 21:31:24 UTC. If nothing is fixed before then,
it will move from 'validation pending' to the end date of 'valid' and credit
will be granted if it's okay. So don't panic, just wait a bit......

What happened to the page layout?

It's all squished up in the middle of my screen now when it used to fit perfectly on my 16x9 screen?

Especially the your computers page, it's squished up so tight that the table boxes listing the computer info have to stretch downwards to encompass all the wording one word at a time. makes it almost impossible to read.

Any way to fix that?


Yes, I've noticed that today. Horrible isn't it!!
Yesterday I could see all five machines on one screen no trouble
now, have to page down loads as the column widths seem to be
too narrow for the loads of script about CPU & GPU properties etc.
and wide margins at each edge....needs fixing if possible please.

At time stamp: 29 Oct 2016, 19:08:31 UTC Project Status indicates that Workunits Waiting for Validation is 0,
however, I have tasks status reported as Completed Awaiting Validation from two of my host machines.

Computer 150370
Task 109141955, Work Unit 101170913, Reported 28 Oct 2016, 1:01:04 UTC.

Computer 222363
Task 108439768, Work Unit 100493607, Reported 28 Oct 2016, 1:05:04 UTC.

Is there a problem with the validator that needs sorting to enable my credit to be granted.
There also maybe other users with tasks still awaiting validation.


These task are still V/pending and server states nothing out-standing!


The two above have now cleared validation but now have another!

Computer 150370
Task 109853038, Work Unit 101866827, Reported 30 Oct 2016, 3:48:33 UTC.

Again Server Status indicates that Workunits Waiting for Validation is 0,


Yes, mine have cleared now. They seem to have cleared when the deadline
time/date ran out. Odd though, I've not seen it happen before.

I agree, somthing's wrong as the BOINC manager will not down-load any new work following a fresh install on one of my machines which has previously been
running for a few years on this project :(

Most likely scenario is: Boincstats tries to get a periodic
incremental update from tgis project but it's security finds
an out of date certificate on this site. It therefore rejects
this site and moves on to the next project.
It will continue failing until a current SSL cert. is installed.

With Kaspersky, you can enter thesonntags.com as an exception to get past the guard dog
but the credits are not being collected by Boincstats site since about 20.00 UTC Thursday evening.
