OH the Humanity!
My bigadv client was pulling in A3 SMP units this morning after finishing its last WU!

Fox: that is what everyone is seeing when they cannot retrieve a new workunit.. just let it go.. in 30-60 minutes it should pick one up.

Yeah the two SMP2 clients I have running for our Chimp Challenge user has been getting lots of them the past day or so. Sucks, but it makes me happy that we got the bonus setup now, as it would suck far more after the CC starts and we were trying to qualify for the bonus.

From time to time you will get a regular WU on a bigadv rig. I have seen it on both my rigs. Just picks up one, and then it will grab a bigadv next time.

I've added this to the original post as well.

Prof. Pande posted the following on his blog today concerning the WU shortage;


We had some WU shortages over the weekend, but for the most part handled the biggest demands. However, we still have shortages for certain types of WUs, especially for pre-v6 clients.
We are working to add more A3 WUs as well as more staff members to prepare A3 WU projects.
Several new classic WUs came on line. Also, once the protomol core (B4) gets more broad code applicability to older hardware (eg pre SSE), those WUs will be able to roll out more broadly as well.

sswilson, what kind of PPD are getting with your 4x 9800gt ? Reason I ask is I'v noticed the price of some have dropped recently and I wonder how they would compare to 4x 240gt ddr5.
