Why is there a delay of more than 6 hours?

I thought this was only for 4.19.

Got broadband.. so no worries for me.. and it really doesn't matter to
me if reports are delayed.. I just wonder why they programmed it so.

Nice info. :) thanks.

Don't, I made a choice that is supposed to support the "standards" where you are consistent with links. I use the icons to link because I wanted to let you know where you are going. All underlined terms get the Glossary. Icons take you to all other places (including the ones that ALSO take you to the glossary.

Cool ...

Web design is easy, until you have to do it. The problem right now is that we are changing mechanisms. Early computers used very rigid navigation and context structures that evolved into a realm of well understood GUI practices.

WIth we browsing, we supposidly changed to one tool so we would be able to take navigation knowledge from one site to another. The problem is that we don't have good tools to reproduce the GUIs of yore ... and instead of one or two standards we have thousands ... mine among them ...

The scheduling server is theoretically the worst bottleneck in a BOINC project (in practice DB access has this tittle so far). In normal operation, worst case, you do about 1.1 scheduler RPCs per workunit. When you use the return immediately flag you will do 2 scheduler RPCs per workunit. So simply by splitting uploads and reports the load on the scheduling server is nearly halved and more than halved when several workunits are reported/assigned at one time.
