I am wondering, as I have two complete packages, one finished and the other recently started. Will they be uploading when both are finished? my last package uploaded successfully yesterday, then downloaded two packages (both listed as h1 Heirarchals) but one ends in p1 (the finished one) and the other is p2, is just started (about 50 hours to go).
Will it then upload both and download two new ones?
Just curious. I did one of these projects several years ago for Seti@H and for a security test team using mass computing power to crack certain virus and security codes (can't remember that project name anymore...was like in 2001, my team back then finished 4th...sigh)
Thanks, just thought I would add my computer into the mix and maybe find some NEW scientific data for the MIT guys to work with...;)
Ciao for now!

Curious about multipackages

The client will decide when it's time to upload and report them. It's designed to minimize the number of scheduler contacts. So it will wait until either the deadline approaches or it's contacting the scheduler anyway, e.g. to fetch new work.
