Hi Jim
Boinc keeps asking for more work because the 6 wu per core limit is less than whatever your cache is set to. If you make cache smaller it should stop asking.(eg. 0.5 days to 0.4 days)Have a great day ok!
;-p

With the 3 day return it seems to take a lot longer for Boinc to think it has done enough. I just get work when I want so it only runs a limit and 'no new work' otherwise, works for my only computer since I'm on it each day.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

Thanks Guys, Till BOINC fixes it I'll deal with it. Doesn't seem to hurt anything.

Tried down In increments down to 0.25 days...No Diff, Must be 6.6.36.
I'm going back to 3 days I think.

Then you'll be complaining that all wu's run in high priority mode and no other project gets any cpu time and MW doesn't request any work!

6.6.36 has bugs. MW reports won't finish in time. Cache size is irrelevant
6.6.38 (alpha) usually gets 1 WU, goes into EDF finishes it and then returns to other projects. I expect this to continue until the LTD returns to normal.
