Don't worry about the exception generated by this resultID of mine.

Two problems happened...

1) I didn't have this battery backup that I have hooked up, so naturally the power went out.

2) I was using 4.13, not 4.15.

Do you think 4.15 would've helped, given the following scenario:

When my system came back up, CHKDSK ran. When I started BOINC back up, it kept the CPU time, but restarted from the beginning. I looked at the output and I saw it restarting, so I wasn't sure what was going to be the end result of all that, so I aborted the task. My wingman was a slow host anyway. They wouldn't have been submitting a result until November 3rd or so... Hopefully the reissue will get picked up by a host at least as fast as my machine...

Hi!

Indeed, this sounds like a problem related to the checkpointing. The 4.15 app addresses the stability of checkpointing and might well be more robust in situations like this.
