Please can anybody from Project explain these message ?
My first answer was stop to crunch for E@H.
I use an P4 HT and crunch for Seti and Einstein on this maschine at same time.

Hi,

Even though you have a fast computer and successfully complete your workunits, the reporting and turn around time is beyond 7 days.

See here:
http://einsteinathome.org/host/24271

Edit: Currently 7.08 days /edit

I believe the problem is your General Preference setting:

"Connect to network about every x days" is set too high. Trying lowering the setting to 2 days or less but at least less than 7 days which is the deadline. Or you can manually report the workunits as you finish them.

As you complete the workunits you currently have, manually report them and the Scheduler will lower the turn around time when credit is granted for them. This should then allow you to get more work.

Many thnks for reply, my 7

Many thnks for reply,

my 7 days are working well, because i'm out of my Home for some days.
I checked my queue of WU's and found some from Einstein again between the Seti WU's. After manual calculating i have to agree to the server message:
I woul'd be out of time when Seti is also running for some E@H WU's.
Just i understand and have to appologize for easy questions; never mind.

Greetings :)

Easy questions are the most fun ... usually ...

In this case there is a debate as to the interactions of the various projects and the setting of the queue sizes.

I had reccommended 2-4 days in the not to distant past. However, my setting of two days when combined with Einstein@Home's short deadline is, pardon the pun, deadly ...

If you have cable or DSL modem consider 0.1 and multple projects. If you have to use dial-up and don't trust the systems to hang up correctly, then consider a shorter queue but stay on top of it to the extent that you can. If you are going to overrun the deadline, if possible kill the work unit instead of wasting your time with it ...

And greetings to you ... :)
