Hello.
In the list http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?userid=9274098&offset=0&show_names=0&state=2&appid= stalled many tasks in the Validation pending (19).
Is this ok? Some tasks processed in 27 Apr 2014, 18:09:33 UTC, month ago...

Every work unit is sent to 2 computers. In your case, you have finished and now awaiting the second computer to return their result. Hopefully it will match, if not then it will be sent to a 3rd computer to see if that result matches either of the first 2. This can go on up to a total of 5 different computers (including the original 2). Looking at the work task, the earliest deadline looks like June 21. So you have to be patient and wait for your "wingman" to return their work unit. Sometime this may take weeks to months (in rare cases where the work unit has gone thru 5 different computers). We all have some work units that have been pending for awhile. Hope this helps


Happy Crunching..

19 is "many"?

Validation pending (2200) :
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6896017&offset=0&show_names=0&state=2&appid=

"month ago" is too long?
Some WUs are unfortunate to get too many errors and are sent to yet another computer (which may mean many months)

This is on 7th 'try':

Some more normal delays:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=1475573923

And because of server bug some (a few) may hang for years:

Hi, all.
Thank you for the information.
As you probably already noticed, I am - a novice in these matters.
Thank you for information and sorry my bad English.
