Reb, would it be possible to add the checkpoint feature to the longer tasks, as it's not soo nice to start all over again when a GPU task (from other projects) messes the boxes up or after power outage ?

Checkpoints are written every 10min for all apps (same wrapper usage). Only the cpu time is not saved and will not count at restart, in windows you can check the stderr.txt. Fixed credits compensate this issue.

...guess I should do my homework better next time, I've just checked the progress and not the stderr.txt file :( (Just blew the fuses of my livingroom 2 times during last night and got a bit frustrated as I'm running the long ones atm, sry)
