The current limits were an accident. It really wasn't supposed to be 100 Per GPU and CPU, it ended up that way because of however they coded it. The limit was supposed to be even less. (at least that is how I remember it being told to me)

But if you allowed people to download as much as they want, then there becomes issues with thousands of lost work units (maybe even millions) having to time out if someone decides just not to return the work units.

So I think the idea was to restrict the number to what they thought was a manageable amount...

Lets see what inside some of the other provide..


Maybe they could up that 100 to 200... I sometimes run through 100 WU's (particularly VLARS!) on my fastest (current) machine in less than 24 hours...

Everybody that's claiming that there 620,000+ WU available: don't you see that those figures are 28 (when this is posted) hours old?

Staff:
a) Do something about the "Server Status" page being over a day out of date!
b) give the splitters a kick in the rear...

Umm, could someone hang a tape on Beta, so that some WU's could flow? There's been none for three days, now...
Or did I miss something?

still not ten, I'll wait to later today.


Rules are "not more than 48 hours" - except when the weakly outrage interferes...

OK, It's Clobbberin' oops… Judgin' Time

Honorable Mention to Carlos for:
"step, step, step, step, step, step, step ,
limp"

but the spider, a Cellar Spider Pholcus phalangioides, actually has all 8 legs - and they're all the proper length, one is just
foreshortened by the camera angle, having been in motion as the shutter went off.

In third Place is Sirius B with:
"Damn, no food, must be cleaning day :-("
points taken off for swearing...

In Second Place is Carlos for:
"Just wait until i evolve into a dark overlord."

Aaand First Place and next photo goes to (dramatic pause) Rob Smith for:
Just wait until you see my Mommy.....

Frankly, I expected a few references to Shelob and/or Ungoliant from The Lord or the Rings (Shelob) and The Silmarillion (Ungoliant, [Shelob's mom, BTW])

PM going out as soon as this missive is posted to my satisfaction...

Possibly my reference to the Songkram Festival went over a few heads - it's a Buddahist water festival in Thailand,
during which Bangkok descends into what looks like an almost no-holds-barred water fight (there are some rules, the most important
being: NO HOT WATER! Room temperature {or outdoor air temperature [typically around 90-100°F...]} water, or cold water
should be tap or purified water, if possible. No big water rifles, [Super-Soaker] but water pistols are accepted...)

I have yet to experience this festival in person, BTW - I'm going to be in Thailand just before the event this year, and still away
from home on the day the fest starts (April 15, this year...) - but by then I'll be in Hawaii... (at least, by my planned itinerary...)

I give thanks to Graham for my win, and will have a picture up shortly...
