Since SETI had some server outages in the past (last one took 3 days?)... How many WUs should I cache on my machines?
Right now I have a stock of WUs for 3 to 5 days in my boinc preferences (old habit from S@H1 times). Is that okay or will some of those WUs get worthless over time?

The WUs currently have a 2 week deadline. If you can crunch them all within that period, it is OK.
Another way around outages is to sign up for several projects. Beta is ongoing at http://setiboinc.ssl.berkeley/ap/, and Protein folding structure prediction is available at http://predictor.scripps.edu/.
