Interesting little glitch. My modest nVidia GTS 450 has been running a Genefer World Record WU for quite a while. I had to suspend the computation due to a really nasty thunderstorm. When I restarted the computation the time to completion went from approximately 60 hours to over 200 hours. Well I'm now over the "end date". I'm letting it run to the end.
I noticed there were 4 other "wingmen" with computation errors on this WU. I am assuming that if mine computes properly (before the next "wingman" completes the WU I will get some credit?
My other 2 rigs have very high end ATI/AMD graphics cards, shame you can't utilize them on this part of PrimeGrid.
