I haven\'t seen this posted - if it has, sorry about that - since we all likely have MANY, MANY WU\'s that have not uploaded as a result of the many issues mentioned.

Are you going to receive credit for them.

This will be a very sore subject if credit will not be issued.

Thanks.

I have 55 WU\'s still trying to upload, but it\'s a lost cause since I can see that in the \"Tasks for User\" files, my WU\'s are already being flagged as \"NO REPLY\" since they cannot be downloaded...I\'ll wait a few more days , but I think its a lost cause...will probably have to \"ABORT TRANSFER\" all 55 WU\'s still trying to upload....I don\'t see another way to get back to a \"clean\" starting point again..

But, I am not going to do any more WU\'s here until I have the guts to abort those transfers...

ah well, its been a good project here...and a little trouble now and then is to be expected...

Just wait. We\'re all in the same situation and even if these tasks get resend to others, you still have a good chance of returning them first. But since none of us can return any work at the moment, a lot more people will get in that situation, tasks will be resend... none will be returned ever, since we can\'t. Not until the server\'s fixed.

I have 260 stuck in uploading (13,000 cobblestones), if I have to aboard them, I\'m aborting the project with them. That\'s B.S., not a \'little\' trouble.

Jord...Appreciate your optimism....but in looking in my \"WORKUNIT DETAILS\",

my last WU not uploaded is WU
and notice that the report date is today, July 15th...

Now, all of my other WU\'s not uploaded are not even listed in my \"WORKUNIT DETAILS\", because their reporting date has already passed.. which means to me that they were reassigned to others and finished...

So now, My workunit details page doesn\'t go back to the dates of those 55 WU\'s that are still trying to upload...That is why I believe those WU\'s are a lost cause....they are now \"HISTORY\"...

I hope you\'re wrong but I think you\'re right. This sucks big time, I\'ll be out 13,000 cobblestone.

I\'d like to that the project mgrs for all their input on what\'s going on - there has been some, right? lol

Still, keep on them. I\'m sure that once Scott has fixed things around here, he\'ll fix that as well. As long as you upload & try to report the work. None of those who got them as resends have managed to upload them either.

As long as they aren\'t in your way, what does it matter? :-)

If you haven\'t tried yet to retry the uploads, do it now. The upload server is taking tasks. Reporting also works.

On the up side, I was able to complete uploads manually over the course of the past 45 minutes... I\'m now done banging on the server for a while so that the \"big boys\" can have some more bandwidth...

On the down side, the validator is backing up again...

You see, there are two sides to every Schwartz....errr...Cosmology task...

I\'m not staying on top of things, just got the luck of the draw that the forums load somewhat quickly at this moment and I have weird times to go to sleep.
BUT, I believe that all the rest of those other 50 + WU\'s predated before July 15 are gone....

Any warning messages in the Messages tab when you uploaded or reported them?

Else, keep an eye on your credits, preferably on BOINCstats or any other stats site you prefer. See if 55x50 credits get added over the next few days. If not, yell about it here in the forums.

If you\'re affected, there\'s bound to be more people affected and they\'ll all want their credit.

Stan, from looking @ your Computer it looks like you are cutting it to close to the Deadlines for the Wu\'s for some reason, I can only surmise that either your Computer isn\'t on full time or your trying to run a lot of different projects at the same time.

You had some Wu\'s that are due today still sitting on your Box waiting to run, with the Projects 9 or 10 day Deadline that shouldn\'t really happen. I don\'t know your situation so can\'t tell you what to do about it other than to cut down on the # of Projects your trying to run @ once or Increase you Resource Share to the Cosmology Project.

I\'m not Harping on you but just trying to give you a few Pointers on how to not have the Wu\'s get so close to their Deadlines ... :)

He could\'ve had the same issue of not being able to upload. All you can see by looking at the computer\'s list is the time that the result was reported, not when it was completed on the local machine, thus the amount of time between completion and reporting is also an unknown. Several results that I reported last night had been complete for days.

If it were not for the problems with the project, then perhaps you could draw the conclusion that the system is running into allocation issues, but right now, most any reporting is going to be days after the fact...and through no fault of the user...

You can also see the Wu\'s that are still waiting to run & if you would of actually read my Post with waiting to run being the key words

You had some Wu\'s that are due today still sitting on your Box waiting to run


and understood it then you would have known that\'s what I was talking about. I didn\'t say 1 single thing about him not being able to Upload Wu\'s or when they were Completed. I was talking about Un-Completed Wu\'s that have a Deadline Due Today.

You need to wake up, have a good cup of coffee & go outside & smell the roses before you start reading peoples posts & then taking them out of Context & making more out of their Post when it really isn\'t there ... ;)
