Hi,

I have come to realise that a lot of my work units have tasks assigned to identical computer pairs. Which means that whenever my "partner" computer (the one working on the same unit like mine) does not produce results for a long time, I have to wait for all my credits for a long time as well. This can be quite annoying. Is there an easy way to change this behaviour?

Regards,
Volker

I'm afraid not Volker, it's the luck of the draw as to who you will be paired up with. You are just unlucky enough to be asking for work at the same time as the slow guy is. It will catch up as you go along just like savings in a bank.
