    I take it once setting the deadlineless WU option you then have to wait for the current unit to finish and the client to download its next WU before setting it back again..

    Set it to deadlineless WUs while it is still crunching its current WU. When it finishes it will try to get more work and it will fail - the server isn't giving out any deadlineless WUs. So, go back into the options and change it back. Your client will then hook up to a different server and hopefully get you a nice WU.

    Make sure you DO NOT have the -advmethods flag set.

    Rather than losing out on folding time, try just removing the -advmethods flag and see what happens. Worst thing that will happen is you have to wait until later on tomorrow to try the trick. Either that or dont sleep :p

    Thought I'd switch advmethods off. Got myself a 600 pointer on the opty straight away, even without changing server. Around 360 ppd, which is nice :) .

    From my observations of the last couple of weeks it would seem with -advmethods on you're stuck with 77x projects. -advmethods off yields 21xx projects which are between 392 and 600 points and the 18xx projects of which all have been 153 pointers but there are a couple of larger ones.

    Is that with advmethods off? I'm still running with it active and am getting up to 600 pointers, but nothing that big.

    I also am running active - but I've never had anything over 600points - but it's on the [email protected] list so if your lucky it could be yours, guessing it's new out from the beta WU's - ram requirments could be very high though

    Holy moly. :eek:
    I'm stomped. You'll beat my weekly production with two of those!

    And whats happened to the team production? Shouldn't borgs be returning or is the end of the holidays having the opposite effect?

    Beenom - looks like a EUE - early unit end

    that happend occationally - especially if maching crashes/OC to high (aka unsatable)/power cut/etc.

    Basically anything that happens, that causes Fahcore to stop mid caculation instead of close (did you say yes to 'a programme is not responding - end now' box - that would do it)

    Having said all that it only take half a sec to close - and windows will do it for you so it's not normally an issue.

    Why did you have to restart?
