    919.35 Hours

    That is the time lost to a F*%&ing BSOD on this damned project. The only positive is that it got me over 1k WUProp hours, so I can at least move on to other, more productive, projects...

    So is the glass 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? A nice positive attitude ... you pulled the silver lining out of the crap

    It's really hard to get a beer to deal with this when you're already drinking beer...

    Has anyone ever finished one of these? Was the team deleted? I don't see it.

    Database error. Teams aren't showing up. I'm on the team (outside shot I'm the founder, too), but it's not showing in my account. I can quit the team that doesn't show up, though.

    And yeah - I've finished a few, but this is/was a truly awful project.

    Do you have the team number? For some reason SETI.Germany is showing up.

    The team was apparently deleted. I re-created it. Maybe it will stick this time.

    I have one task at 475 hours. If I manage to finish it, I may take the plunge and go for 100k. I'll want to finish up my 100k's at Denis and Volpex first, though and also, I'm overdue on computer updates.

    One of the few projects I gave up on trying to get to 100K. Incredibly frustrating. Made it to 67K but must have aborted 10x as many wu's as completed, mostly after 30+ hours. Vast majority never finish.

    What I was told at one point was to abort anything that took longer than ~150 hours, since it would be very unlikely to ever finish.

    What I'm noticing is that people who are actually still finishing tasks, most of them are taking around 1,500,000 seconds (~400 hours). Nothing has been written to the output file, yet. I'll let it run for another couple hundred hours before I give up on it.
