Gee, he's slowing the project a lot with those unreturned WUs. I would certainly ban him.

He almost reached 4000 tasks yesterday. Seems some tasks timed out.

I've been complaining about that guy for days. He's a wingman to a couple of my tasks thats been in pending for almost 2 weeks now.

No, I sure don't understand it ... because he should only be getting 24 tasks at a time, how he is getting so many issued with none returned is past me ... his system total is falling at the least so that is a good thing... though I don't quite know why it is taking so long ...

There is a proposal to change the "punishment" scheme in BOINC to catch badly behaving hosts ... though it is hard to know what is going on here without some input from the project ... all I can think of is that he is downloading tasks but deleting them without boing reporing that back to the server ...

I'm looking into seeing what I can do about this. It sucks that this guy is screwing up some other peoples quorums by getting so many WUs.

I've also sent him a PM asking whats the deal. If he doesn't respond or stop continuing to do this he'll be banned.

Three different mechanism have been proposed from the malicious to the benign (in other words, doing it deliberately or it just may be a bug and the user is unaware).

THis ties into a larger discussion about host "punishment" for returning bad tasks, I posted a note to this effect, but in that UCB is pretty wedded to the idea that I should be ignored, no telling if they are going to listen ...

Hmm, Tiger Direct is selling GTX480 at $530 this weekend ...

Thanks but the surgery was cancelled...

As Travis noted earlier he's addressing the issue

Didn't look, Frys is selling the 470 for $350 I think it was ... no matter ... I need to wait a bit before I go spend that much again ... and I am still more likely to get another 5870 instead ... when I start to get 3 slot MBs I may think to put in a pair of 5870s and one 480/470
