Hello, These are some of the new runs that you asked us to watch in your news of 6/9/21. I have 42 tasks marked 'error while computing'? They are tasks #216629565 to 216629755. Do not like wasting my computer time when I get so many failed tasks. Please advise.

If you look at the next to bottom line of your 'error while computing' tasks, they are all gpu tasks btw, you will see this note "Device doesn't support double precision" MilkyWay requires a gpu that has double precision to crunch and your Nvidia 9400 gpu does not support that. You will either need to upgrade to a gpu that does support double precision or crunch for another project that does not require that.
