Just wondering why :
I have, as on the 18/02/17, about 35 tasks for SETI lined up on BONIC.
These tasks all have a 'Deadline Date' these dates cover the period Jan, Feb and Mar.
Why are tasks with March Deadlines getting preference over tasks that expire in a few days?
I would imagine Bionic would run the January Deadline tasks before the March ones.
Is there any setting involved that I don't know about?

BOINC schedules work based upon first in, first out. Work that is downloaded first will be processed first. If a workunit is going to miss a deadline, then BOINC switches over to earliest deadline first.
