Hi Al,
Thanks for the reply. Any idea if these old WU will ever get cleaned up?

In scrolling through my WU task listings on the website, I have a bunch (over 700) completed tasks (Valid & Invalid) listed from January 2021. There is a jump from March 2022 back to January 2021 in the Valid listings.

and mine; https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=4744
There doesn't appear to be any pattern as to which WU will fault and which ones won't. But, if your wingmen have similar hardware and software, usually the WU won't fault.

Hi Al,
Thanks for the info. I guess there is nothing I can do on my end to stop this.
Should I post this in Tom's thread too?

Two of my boxes have started getting a bunch of validate errors on Separation 1.46 (both CPU and GPU) work units. Can someone look at them and let me know what could be causing the errors.
Thanks for any help.

I will be changing the GPU card in one of my boxes from a NVIDIA GTX-760 to a Radeon RX-580. Will I need to clear out my GPU work unit cache before the change?

I am looking to add new GPU cards to two boxes.
I am looking at two cards from XFX; a RX 580 GTS or a RX 5500 XT Thicc II Pro.
Any advice on choice? Both cards are similar cost.

Please forgive a newbee question.
Why does MW@H list all work units waiting for a second result as "Validation Inconclusive" instead of listing them as "Validation Pending"?

I have been a long time SETI and Einstein cruncher. With SETI going into hibernation, I have joined MW to fill the void. I have 3 boxes with Nvidia GPU cards (2 with GTX-760 and 1 with GTX-1050Ti). i have read in other posts that Nvidia GPU cards don't process MW GPU work units efficiently. Is this still true? My plan is to limit Einstein WU to the GPU cards and limit MW WU to the CPU. Does this sound like a good plan, or should I just let both projects run both CPU and GPU WU?
