Nothing to worry about. The validation process for S@H can take months. It depends on two independent computers returning their analysis of the work unit, and those two results being "the same", if not the work unit is sent out again, to a third computer and so on to a maximum of ten computers. Given that each cycle can take upwards of a month, and the task may not be generated immediately it is quite possible to have a returned work unit waiting for about a year.

Hi Rob,


Well ok... I see ;) So there's a good chance all the work is not lost!?!?

Couldn't understand why my average got so low after ADDING 2 new computers ;)

Again, thanks for your prompt answer ;)
