1) Message boards : Wieferich and Wall-Sun-Sun Prime Search : WUs too much of a challenge for CPU-only systems ? (Message 148028)

Thank you SO MUCH both, that's excellent news on both counts.

I really had no idea that you could see deadline extensions - you learn something every day, even after 13 years of number crunching :-)

The Linux BOINC Manager ( I'm currently on v7.16.14 ) only shows the original deadline and not ( AFAIK ) any amended versions hence my original concern.

Cheers.

Hi everyone,

I've managed to complete 2 WUs so far, but my third WU has run for over 4 days and only reached 70%. Its deadline is tomorrow afternoon.

If the system recognises a WU in progress and allows extra time to complete, then all is well.

If not, then I won't be able to justify burning so much CPU only to have the eventual result disregarded and/or receiving no credit for the eventual result returned.

This would be a great shame as this is such an interesting search in which to participate.

Any thoughts ?
