1. Mine is that it went on a 3-day pass, and caught something...

2. There are tribbles in the system...

Server issues/bandwidth overloading perhaps...

Or little green alien men disrupting the system so we can't map out the milkyway and uncover them ;)

Really sucked this morning when milky, cosmo, and seti all didn't work...never thought i'd end up back at malaria@home!

My guess is bit rot. The server thinks the downloads are complete, my rigs sit there with 20 WU's "downloading" but stuck in limbo. I would blame the routers at MW. One or more are in failing mode. I have had to reset the project on more
than one rig to get a new helping of work by deleting the phantom transfers que.

Look forward to more trouble.

I don't think it is 'funny' at all!!! hehe

Its a race to see which website/server is slower or who gives a failed to connect to server response the most, Cosmo or Milkyway.....the d/l's here been slow but no phantom or stuck...guess I am just lucky <G>

Like Cosmo, MW has become a victim of it's own success. I expect the hardware cannot keep up with the volume.

Why not make the WUs at least 10 times bigger?
With this heavy traffic on the server something has to break.

I believe we may be reaching our hardware limit as well and will be bringing it up in the future.

Also, I have increased the WU times in hopes this alleviates some of our problems.
