Could someone please explain to me the criteria for being chosen UOTD?
I was under the impression that individuals and groups who were actively participating were chosen.

I haven't gotten anything for a few days -- and have about a dozen units sitting in limbo waiting to be validated.
Shifting everything over to WCG until (if) this gets sorted out - frustrating.

The worst of the problem is that as I am (was - taking a break for the moment) running two work units, if I had
not increased my ram to 4 Gb, my computer started to slow down drastically. My
3 other crunchers run only BOINC, so it isn't a problem there. It just seems to me that the amount of memory that these calculations use are a little (lot) excessive in relation to other projects out there.
And yet Cosmology is one of my favorite projects to run .... go figure

Why is it that Cosmology work units are using anywhere from 6 to 10 times as much memory as any other BOINC project? I'm running this on 4 different systems, all dual core or better, and this problem is consistent across the board.
