Hello Project Admins!
Just wondering if longer running WU's are in the works or does the future involve manually priming the pumps every few hours to get from no work back up to maximum 20/core...
Thanks! :)

Right -- join the throng who are suggesting this (smile).

Then again, the admins have seemingly been offline for a while so perhaps they are working on something for us (hope, hope). Or perhaps they have abandoned us (boo, hiss).

I was hoping that good-natured nagging might get a response :)

It doesn't make sence before ineffective official app is replaced.
It would only make official apps to runs for even more hours and deadline issue is on the table.

So, as the new apps was promissed...

This is true. We have tried to make the workunits longer than they were previously. We're going to have to make them longer yet still most likely

Useful if it involves more science and more precise science involved.

Indeed -- in as much as the newer 'longer' running work units are not longer running -- that optimization might be making it difficult to design a longer running work unit.
