Hello,

there will be a 3-day-long challenge (A), already 9 teams signed up.

I: WU availability:

Can the DrugDiscovery admin please check if there will be enough WUs available for the challenge time ?
(Or mods: can you contact the admin with this or move my post to an appropriate section? Merci)


II. BOINC users: please participate
- 1. tell your teamfounder to join the challenge on boincstats
- 2. the users just have to crunch the WUs in that time period. nothing more

Oh well, I was a bit late to the party.
Strangely though..... my computer with a Q9550 CPU won't get any work units :? And when I looked at the tasks, it had aborted them all almost straight away.
I certainly didn't abort them because I haven't been home to abort them.

I checked my preferences, couldn't see anything.
I've just suspended it and run another project on that computer. Not sure why it's aborted all the work though. My i5 is running fine.

Hi,

I won't have time to check until tomorrow sorry due to work.
When you say "time settings", Do you mean under "Computing Preferences"?

Thank you

No, just clock on this computer.
The error says that WU wasn't started before deadline really - which means that you have wrongly set clock or time zone on this machine.

Ah HA!!
LOL...thank you. Turns out the date said 08/03/17 instead of 07/03/17

Like I said...I don't have a monitor hooked up to this PC so rarely look at it.
