I have an error task since 2010.

Who shall I call to delete it? :-)

Every now and then these "hangers on" just hang on. There is nothing that we can do about them, periodically there is a purge of the database that is supposed to get rid of such anomalies, but its a low priority job, and with everything else that's going on I doubt we see a purge being done nay day soon

Just noticed that I have one from 2010 as well. Claimed my rig abandoned it. But there were two validated results returned, yet it remains.


Wonder how many of these might be hiding in the DB.
I have contacted Eric to see if it warrants looking into.

Perhaps splitter CPU's should simply redirect their processing power to data maintenance when they run out of data to split?

Not sure how possible this might be, but at first glance it certainly seems plausible to redirect CPU power to low priority jobs when it's available.
