I have 23 AP tasks pending, and all my wingman's stop their computers for so long.
Now i must wait, so those tasks will be assign to another computer.

And if this happen again?

Then you'll have to wait a bit longer. :)

Just wondering, can you be your own wingman if you have more than one computer?

I guess it's not really optional but more theoretically possible?

I suspect so, although I can't say that I have seen anybody post such an occurrence. I think the scheduler doles work out keeping track of individual hosts without concern for the master account they are attached to.
So I don't see why it could not happen.

As to the odds.......

Yeah, both of your machines would have to hit the scheduler at pretty much the exact same time...
Tough to do even with simultaneous manual update requests.

This project uses the project configuration setting <one_result_per_user_per_wu/>, so one account should never get two tasks for the same WU. Without that or the similar <one_result_per_host_per_wu/> a single work request would often get both of the tasks for a single WU because the initial replication puts the two tasks adjacent in the "Results ready to send" queue.

It's called Volunteer Computing and dedication varies -- a lot.

If you want to eliminate things like late (or lost) work, you simply have to limit the project to the most reliable volunteers and most reliable computers.

Once you do that (and eliminate the vast majority of the volunteers) then these sorts of events will be quite rare.

But that's not reality. We should be saying "look how well all this stuff works with random hardware and casual volunteers!"

Waiting is.
