I need to apologize to my wingmen waiting for my results on 2 of my computers. They are 7135571 and 7118900. Seems like a Trojan made it's way through the Firewall at work and onto all the computers around 4:04 am Central time. Spent the whole day trying to remove and repair the damage but when all was said and done, we have to do a full reinstall from back ups and I lost all my work units. So, I apologize to any of you that were waiting.

We all need a few thousand "pending" credits to get out highest RAC flat-line.

Sorry to hear about your infection, and I do hope you manage to purge it from your system completely and rapidly.

Finally got both computers up and running. Took day and a half for both. Total looks like 134 Work units, 131 for the first one. The second looks like it only lost 3, was able to get seti to resend the rest. It's a nasty little thing, but looks like we got it isolated. Sorry again.
