What has been talked about errored out tasks : I've still got 5 which all were validated and my wingman also returned in time, but for no apparent reason there was a resend which timed out on all 5 (from May 2nd) on so those tasks "in limbo" could actually be quite high indeed if most hosts have these system hiccup's....

If you look at the Task Details/stderr info on each task, you notice that for each WorkUnit, one of the original tasks ran to completion, and the other, a GPU task, errored, and was resent. I remember right after v7 roll-out, there were problems with some of the new GPU aps, so Eric ran a script to validate and grant credit to such WorkUnits. I think it was supposed to run only on v7 work, but it got a few MB Enhanced, too. It just so happened that all 5 of the resends for your WorkUnits went to crunchers that went AWOL and timed-out but have not been resent again. Probably going to sit until all the Enhanced/v6 workunits are done, and Eric/Matt/Jeff go in to clean up the database.

I'm only running one computer. Using 2 cores of an old Q8200 CPU for CPU tasks, and 2 cores feeding a single Mid-range GPU, ATI HD7870.
Look at the RAC folks, and ask yourselves why it beats so many multi GPU monster computers :-)

It went down almost 400 in a day. At that rate, it shouldn't be much over another week.

One of them just timed out and went to me. I'd expect to return it within 3 days.

For the past six days, the average "rate of return" has been 230/day. At that rate, the current prediction is 2 September.

It will, as long as tasks already validated never get deleted.

2,194. It might not take forever, but the lower in numbers we get, the slower it will fall.

I still have 1 out there waiting to be reissued after it times out on the 5 Sep 2013, 18:03:10 UTC.

Though 20 of my valids that should've cleared months ago have not yet, so I'm not sure how accurate that number is.

Cheers.

Congratulations. I haven't had any MB 6 WUs for months now. Take a screenshot, and save it for posterity.

For some reason, I got 4 V6 work units this morning. All crunched, reported and credit awarded.

I recall getting one maybe 1.5-2 months ago. I knew it was a rarity, but didn't quite care at the time.

Now I wish I could get one more, just for Sten's suggested screen shot.

Amazing the allure of a measily WU lol :)
