I returned a work unit, which ran for the normal amount of time, (10 hours), and looking at the log, completed normally without errors or unusual status. It was then flagged as invalid, I'm curious why that should be so. No new tasks set.

I posted this two weeks ago, and set no new tasks. If nobody can or will tell me what happened, fine, I'll just detatch. Counting down...

Many project applications fail once in a while. Understanding why one specific task fails requires intimate knowledge of that application. If the application developer of camb_legacy is nearby I'm sure he or she would reply.

Looking at this work unit another computer completed the task and was validated as correct. Usually when that is the case I'd point at a computer fault (memory error for example) or a compiler error (you're running on windows, the other computer that finished the work unit ran gnu/linux).

Quitting a project over a single task is a bit drastic in my world but you're of course free to allocate your resources wherever you want to!

EDIT: spelling.

10 hours on a 4 GHz i7 is quite a lot of computing, and then it is discarded without error or explanation. They have had the time and opportunity to answer my message, but have not done so, which I regard as simply rude. I have crunched their work for more than 10 years, and get that. Maybe they'll learn next time something like that happens to another cruncher, it won't be me, I had no new tasks set from the date of the first post, all outstanding work units are completed long ago, I am detaching my systems now.
