Hi,

I\'m probably just looking in the wrong place but I was wondering if anyone can tell me why this workunit was decided to be invalid?

The only thing visible to compare is the stderr which is identical for all three results. In fact, the time discrepancy (my ~21k seconds to the ~16/18k seconds of the other two) seems to be the only difference... :confused:

All three work units look the same but in the results there must have been enough of a difference for your result and first returned result to have had another one sent out to see which result matched the 3rd sent result.
In this case it looks like you lucked out and the 3rd result did not match with your result but the other computer instead.

This happens now and then.
Sometimes overclocking can be the cause of the variations in the returned results or a computer problem of some sort, such as memory issues.

Macditch, looking at the dates on your WU could you have been caught by the same problem as I was with 5.10.28 ie the output files went missing. See here
