With an upcoming BOINCStats challenge the fact that there is no work to distribute is troubling at best.

Do you have any update when an Vina App may be released to work with Android Smartphones ? Millions of devices out there and they work great.

I am currently running 5 projects on a Samsung Smartphone.

I received 25 of the newest WU's and 6 coded out as Completed, validation inconclusive. Seems like a high percentage, but I did not write the Code and I will defer to the Project staff to decide if that is acceptable.

System 7712 under Windows with AMD CPU that has only AVX not AVX2 or AVX256 is failing all CUDA jobs.

Nvidia GPU 0: GeForce 210 [b](driver version 342.01, CUDA version 6.5, compute capability 1.2, 1024MB, 844MB available, 67 GFLOPS peak)

Do I meet minimum Spec's for this work ?

Lots of Windows Users and CPU's out here waiting for work.

If you can't find work for the Users to work on they will disappear to other projects and when you want them they will be gone.

Please post a News or tread update on Windows work to be released.
