I have no idea what an inode is but know that there are plenty of tasks that need llr'ing that are being held up at the moment.

Why run the project as a virtual machine? Are computers that scarce that one cannot be put full-time on this project?

A VM is easy to manage and a server costs around 60 Euro per month.

We are running low on tasks again. Like the short tasks, abhor the long runners!

Please try to run the longer tasks if you can as these usually have a few "k"s remaining and almost no one does them (of course, if your computer can't run them or you don't have time disregard this)

Also you get more credit from the long tasks.

Soon, I will wait for all coming back because there could be a hit.

Unfortunately there is no more work. The reasons are waiting for the results of some bases and the last done base has a lot of bad results I have never seen before and need a doublecheck. This can be take 1-2 days.

I will try to add some more work for the average apps. The database is very large at the moment keeping the server busy. Thats why some parts of the website are very slowly.

Also the main thing is that most of the bases has more primes left (more WUs in lower ranges that cant be handled at once). I must split the bases more and more. Smaller tests are done very fast and checking results cost a bit more of time.

If you are planning to run a challenge / raid let me know 1 week before it starts. I must rethink on some things to keep the work flowing.

All your efforts are appreciated rebirther.

A few hours or even a few days outage is nothing compared to the work behind the scenes to keep this project going.

No,thx, I will run them with -t6 so its faster but I need to pickup all the files first, will check the R63 first to put some new work for 1 day on the server.

Since a few hours I don't get any workunits. Boinc manager says "no tasks are available for Sierpinski / Riesel Base", even if there are plenty of them on the server.
