Still the 12th July for me. Wingmen have timed out 3 times so hopefully 4th time lucky though I'll have to wait up to the 15th January to find out.

Cheers.

Can anybody beat 13 May?... http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=611832096 So far it has timed out four times and headed for a fifth on December 12th.


It's still here!!! I misread the time out date, it doesn't time out until the 12th of this month.

Problem with mine, the last guy to get it quit so has not contacted the server to let it know the work was abandoned. They really do need a quit button so you can tell the server your leaving and not coming back. Even a detach doesn't do this. The work is stuck unless you do an attach afterward which runs the risk of even more work downloaded.

Well, this is a pleasant surprise, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=611832096
Woke up this morning to find my oldest task had been marked as a validate error but was granted 112.92 credits. My latest wingman on this one completed just in the nick of time but got marked as inconclusive so it goes on to another wingman. I guess the powers that be decided I'd waited long enough on that one.

PS: that was me that finished it back on 15 May.

The credit was probably granted back on Nov 03 2010, but the task will have remained pending until there was a candidate wingman to trigger the validation process (because what we really want is a canonical result for the sciance database).

"Validate error" stands for a server-side problem (result file not found) and those tasks sometimes get credit by a script.

I had some old ones until the resend push just before the project did its full restart. My oldest for me is Dec 18th 2010. But I got lucky mine dating back to the start of 2010 got done after all the downtime. The funny thing I run a 0.1 day cache so no one waits on me unless I have an error but I wait on others all the time.

Issued July 5, returned July 11

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=629642849

The person that has it now is set to time out 1/10 and I will bet every one of my 22 mil credits that they will.

They have 0 RAC and 0 credit.

Well they are running Darwin on a laptop, so it sounds like a toy machine they are merely experimenting with. Sucks though.

My oldest is only the 10th of October. My second wingman on this task is set to time out on the 9th of January, so we shall see. (Guess I've been pretty lucky with my WUs!) Especially considering this guy is running an Athlon 64 3800+ and is only getting 1 WU at a time! Weird thing is his computer stats show it hasn't been active in over 30 days with a RAC of .12. Last time he connected to S@H was the 24th of November to download as my wingman. Ok I take back the luck thing.....
