I know, in the past, that people have said this project gives too much credit, but to change it so that it gives even less than WCG does not seem to be the way to resolve credit issues.

My first downloaded wu after the \'catch up\' outage failed with a checksum error. Is this a sign of things to come?

Note that the second wu succeeded.

I also had a similar problem although on a much smaller scale. The two wus below were received on the first and completed by the second by which time they could not be returned until yesterday due to the \'catch up\', during that time they were flagged as not needed. It took some 17 hours of processing time on my crate and they are now, apparently, going to receive no credit. A bit of a bummer really.

Hi Daryl,
It\'s a server side error, so there\'s nothing you can do about it. If you look at the server status page you\'ll see that the feeder is down, this probably has something to do with it. I guess it\'s just a case of being patient until Ben can sort out the problem.
