It does so, although it seems to rotate between 4 mirrors here only.

I'll leave it be. Eventually it'll get the stuff in, I'm sure of that. :)

Yep, the old EAH locomotive finally built up a head of steam and I'm all caught up as of about an hour ago! :-)

Collatz even seems to have recouped from getting bombed by having MW crap out with no one around to give it kick back into life, despite it's very low budget/low staff stature. :-D

The Hannover mirror also plays a role in the ABP search so we are not using it as a mirror right now. I changed the server_status page to no longer list this mirror. The other four mirrors are actually running but are listed as "not running" because they fail to respond when the mirror checking script tries to download a file.

Thanks for those explanations, David. Don't you need more mirrors (and smokescreens)? :-)

One thing that's a bit odd

One thing that's a bit odd about the new tasks: the progress indicator is non-monotonic (at least on my 6.4.5 Linux BOINC manager). For instance, one task just "increased" from 92.78% to 91.85%. I haven't noticed this sort of behaviour on earlier types of workunit.

Was the task suspended in between, i.e. recovered form a checkpoint?

For what's it worth, I've just seen the same behaviour on a Windows machine. Nothing about it in the stderr.txt though.

It happened between 2 checkpoints. You just have to see it, by chance.

No, it isn't. It's just a little quirk and as far as I have seen it only happens once. I only checked because I read Darren's post and saw I was at 92.111%, so sat here watching what it was going to do. :-)

I'm not going to check the last 48 minutes of its run time what other flaky percentages there are, promised. :-)
