Two today! Also recently celebrating getting the full bronze set, it took forever for one of my SoB tasks to validate.

Finally got a full set Bronze, I've been having trouble getting some of the longer LLR tasks to fully crunch and validate. I think I have most of the kinks worked out now.

That is basically what I thought. I ended up being a little out of luck for the last challenge because I was a couple hundred hours into some SoB work and did not feel like losing all that computation time.

It's nice to know that there is some small bias toward the shorter tasks, but you are right that it is nearly impossible to tell. If it was 500x more likely to get a PPSE task than a SoB task then it would be more balanced (on average).

I'm working on filling out my set of badges now, so I will stick to similar sized tasks at least.

I'm fairly new to primegrid, and I was wondering how the server decides to send tasks when you have multiple subprojects selected.

Is it a random chance based on # of projects you have selected and the hardware you are running?

Or does it try and balance the load based on (expected) computation time?

If I had to guess, I would say it is closer to the first option, as I seem to always eventually end up with all my cores running the longest CPU task I have enabled like SoB.

My CPU is not overclocked at all, so i doubt that is it. However I was recently playing with the number of cores and % CPU time I was using for BOINC. I had run into problems with a different BOINC project previously, and stopped running that project to focus on Primegrid. I think I might have been a bit too aggressive, so restoring those settings should help.
6) Message boards : Problems and Help : Validation issues - 321 LLR? (Message 86410)

I have had several LLR tasks recently fail to validate, most noticably on the 321 subproject. Looks like about 50% of the time, it isn't working properly for 321.

Most of my other tasks seem to be fine, but I seem to be having a systematic problem with the 321 tasks.

If it helps, I was probably running a second BOINC project on the same machine when these tasks were run, I am no longer doing that.

Any advice would be appreciated.
