Hi guys,
We are currently between experiments and we are working on the next experiment at the moment.

We will have new tasks ready to send on Monday evening (~19:00 GMT+1). We apologize for the latest string of issues and will ensure we don't have a repeat of them.

Thanks for contributing and we hope you stick around,
Kevin

Thanks for the updates. I'll plug away at a different project until the new WUs come in here.

Cheers~

I just reattached a pc I had taken away and got a large handful of units, so there ARE still some units available.

I got some too but after 20 min or so the finished WUs the files were 0 bytes in size. Are they working for you?

I'm getting 0 byte upload files too. So far all of my reported tasks are being successfully validated (e.g. task 131853111).

So are they legit WUs but with just very small sizes hence they are showing up as 0 bytes in size?

Ok, we're beginning to add new tasks now. It will be a small batch at first but it should last a few days. When we know we are back on our feet we will add more - hopefully immediately after this batch.
Thanks for sticking around!

I'm not sure if this related to the new experiments or not but the advertised task runtimes are 43 min about twice long as they were before. But the actual run times are running 2+ hours about 7 times longer than before. This coupled with awarding only 9.75 credits for runs of 2 - 5 hours I'm afraid makes your project rather unappealing. It could be that my computer is not fast enough to make this project efficient enough to keep as an ongoing project. I wish you all the best and hope that my small contributions may have been of some benefit.
