1) Questions and Answers : Web site : To many work units (Message 1071014)
Posted 27 Jan 2011 by Profile Dr. Leland Gilsen
Lately I have been getting 20-25 work units at a time. My computer processes some of them, but never all of them. Sooner or later they appear to time out and drop out... then normal numbers for a day or two then a huge upload of work units again.

While I leave my computer on 24 hours a day, and have been doing units for a long time... it has its limits as an Intel core2 processor (2.4 Ghz w/Quad core technology and 8MB cache.
2) Questions and Answers : Web site : uploading not complete? (Message 136302)

Since yesterday I have had 10 partial uploads that do not seem to complete on my list to run. Is this a problem? They just sit there doing nothing.... at least for the last 24 hrs... and say "uploading"... not "running" nor obviously "ready to report" or "downloading"....while others are running and being processed.

With all of the programmers involved with seti, why can't someone set up a simple system to find a specific person in the summary stats? If I am, 670th, for example, I have to look through 33+ pages at 20 per page, to find myself. Why can't I just jump to a specified person or a specified range of averages or totals?

What would be that hard. Most databases do this.
