Why is this set of results inconclusive?

Both of us have returned the same result.

How do you know? Did you manage to capture both the uploaded data files?

As we've said before, there's a heck of a lot more to validation than the raw signal counts - powers, frequencies, timings, threshholds....

Obviously not. So there is more to the results than what is made available in the task file, then? That's all you needed to say.

I've got a larger number of inconclusives than I've ever seen before, five out of my seven pendings, all with different wingmen. I wondered if there was a common factor, other than me.

Three of those five inconclusives in your pending list do show enough information in the stderr section to make a judgement. When a GPU overflows on a WU where your CPU didn't it's almost certain your result is right and the wingmate's wrong.
