Like others I've set up multiple PC's linked to SETI@Home, I've used the same SETI@home URL: and account ID: for all of them was this a mistake?
I can understand the high demand leading to lack of units [well 4+Million of us all eager to help :) ],
but what does "Not sending work - last RPC too recent:" mean in this context.
I do get a trickle of units through on three of my PC's, but two others have been setup for three + days now with none! It took 1/2 a day to connect!
On my main PC it took two days to send off 7 completed units, and then I finally got numbers in my [Total] and {Average] credit lines.
Why can no work units be siphoned off the other SETI site? I've had to leave my other older SETI PC's running the old style.

It's only a mistake if you wanted them contributing to separate accounts. ;-)

This was a feature set in place due to an early bug that some hosts hammered the scheduler several times a second. Now there's a time limit on how soon the scheduler will talk to you again.

Because those WUs are an incompatible format.
