Reb,

Just got some tasks that had timed out. Noticed that the max number of success tasks is set to 2. Might I suggest upping this to 3 so folks with super slow computers don't get penalized, or folks with faster computers don't lose out if the previous wingman submits before the fast one finishes.

Cheers!

S.

There's enuf people that you can leave the quorum at 2 and move the
deadline back to 24h. The undone w/u's would get turned around
quickly as well as the initial runs.
