Admittedly there is a heavy load on my plate. But, there are a couple of mitigators.

The most important is that the Cosmology WUs are not due until 7/27. One has already had work (19:06) done on it and has but 2:37 to go, a second started as a 17+, had 2:45 done with 11:51 left. The third has not started and has 27:03 to completion. Most of the WUs don't take the initial indicated TTC. It is off, on my machine, by about 14%.

The second mitigant is a dual processor, which works well enough that I have had no work finish late. My computer runs 24/7, and most of that is BOINC time.

So with approximately 240 hours of work, and with it spread out the way it is, there should still be no work left behind.

I'll post how things come out o/a 8/3.

I was running 6.6.36 and getting the "won't finish . . ." message. I dropped back to 6.6.26 and in short order received 4 MW. When they were almost completed I switched back to 6.6.36. The MW completed and the next time a request for MW was made, the "won't finish . . ." reappeared.

Shortly after submitting the above I decided to return to 6.6.26. 5 MW popped up.
