I have a machine that I've been using to crunch Milkyway that is kind of slow, but very stable. I was surprised to see the longer work units, but what is the problem for me is the amount of time given to finish them. If work units are going to be made for longer run times it would be helpful to give more time to finish them.

What I've been using is an IBM RS6000 ppc64 that has a 400MHz processor. It finished(not in time) the recent work unit in 80 hours, about 10 more hours than what was allowed. Can we give the work units a few more days to complete, or at least one?

My older G4 Macs are in the same boat. But the only remedy that might be considered is bringing the WU size back down a bit; the deadlines are already maxed as far as the admins are concerned. See under Deadline problem.
