Any news, estimates, or guesses on when work units will be ready?

It looks like some work units went out, but there were too few for everyone to get some. How did that batch turn out and is there a chance of more work units so you can solve all the mysteries of our favorite galaxy?

I have a couple of items stuck trying to download to my machine, with the message "file not found". The two items are stars.txt and volume.txt. Should I abort or continue to wait?

Thanks!

Edit: Found the same problem on three other machines.

For windows XP I get the message "11/7/2007 10:57:11 PM|Milkyway@home|Message from server: (there was work but you don't have enough disk space allocated)" I have never put any limitation on disk space on any BOINC project.

Just to confirm that I have the same problem with the same files.

I updated my general preferences to allow more of everything related to disk space and did get three work units. This is the only BOINC project I have had to do that for and you may want to mention it somewhere.

They show up as 'download failed' in the task list.

Aborting and asking for new work seems to solve the problem.

Didn't work for me. :( Also, waiting a random amount of time and retrying the download also didn't work for me.

[edit]I spoke too soon. It finally did work for me after I aborted and asked for new work. It still failed the first time or two, but it did eventually work.[/edit]

I waited and both files downloaded for me. It took about a few tries but it eventually got them.

Got a bunch of work too. The first task failed - again the wellknown stars.txt - failed with error_code -224, file stars.txt not found. On next attempt one minute later the download succeeded.
