Right now my computer is processing 3 tasks and only has 4 ready to start. But 32 with validation pending. At this rate, it will be out of work by tonight.

With no work coming from my other projects - Asteroids and Rosetta, my computer will be idle.

I joined Science United on one PC and am getting thousands of MilkyWay@home tasks, both CPU and GPU.

Is your cache setting very low for some reason? Your cpu is very low powered with a low APR and high turnaround times. You might get more work if you increased your cache settings to 10 days.

Be careful what you ask for.

I set the cache for 10 days' work and now have 127 tasks ready to start. Plus 45 Rosetta projects. Whew!

You must adjust the size of the cache to fit your needs, from 0.01 to 10 days.
Maybe 1 or 2 days will be better in your case.
Only you could find your own swett spot.
