Hallo and happy New Year!
I had an unstable PC and was out for vacation, so I was unable to crunch for some weeks. When I came back to operation on 2nd Jan., BOINC restarted tasks and crunched them to end, that became downloaded on 8th Dec. 2013, see one of three. So by ending this task were too late to become accepted and I wasted at all more than 22h CPU-hours. A short check at the beginning of the restart would have circumvent this.

Kind regards and happy crunching
Martin

The scheduling is a BOINC function, not an Einstein function.

You could register your desires at that forum if you like.
