I'm sorry to guys. I screwed up big time.
I use a Asus MB with AMD 6 core processor and Geoforce 460. processor.
Sharing the processors between Seti and MilkyWay. Been with Seti since
1993 approx.
Normally I would get 36 max. Milkyway (cuda_opencl)wu's work units for the 460.
Until last week noticing approx 1700+ work units. No problem I thought, until
this morning. I went to suspend the MilkyWay Wu's but to my horror, I must not
hit the box correctly in Boinc Task, and aborted them instead of suspending.
I'm here in complete bewilderment seeing these work units now showing as "aborted". Is there any way to retreive these work units, though I think not. Any restoration methods would be greatly appreciated. I'm sorry for the inconvience, and can only wait to obtain new work units. Sorry all.

Evidently Climate Prediction is working (non cuda). I asked for one day of
cache..... Got 2 work units. one 117 hrs. the other 93 hours. It'll keep my
dual core amd busier than heck, but still no cuda for my Geoforce 460. *sigh*

I believe the Nvidia GTX 460 runs DP calculations although I found nothing on the Nvidia site. I running in presently and seems to work good except for 1 exception
0.52 MilkyWay@Home (cuda_opencl) de_separation_79_1s_fix_1_120043_1297264753_1

which I have suspended. The unit's progress is 138% Time left is (-)
The elapsed time was in excess of 1 hour. (Normally run 12-17 minutes)
Restarted the work unit and completion time shows 100% Time left (-)and new elapsed time shows as 00:00:22 (00:00:05) Again suspended.
How should this work unit be treated? Abort? Thank you for your support.

Help. I'm currently running Seti@Home and ClimatePerdiction@ Home with problems. I uploaded MilkyWay@Home but the Boinc Screensaver just shows
the different projects running and get a error message indicating that there is a unspecific error
with the screensaver. I'm running a dual core AMD processor and Cuda 23. I have not run into this problem with the Seti, Setu cuda and Climate work units. It's only evident when running MilkyWay@Home.
I can suspend the Seti, Climateperdiction and cuda
work with only MilkyWay running but still get the erroor. And help or suggestions? Thanks
