    Suggestion, either administer this project or shut it down! So far I'm underwhelmed ;-o

        I have set my machines to no new work and am letting the machines "drain" down existing wus. I have 184 work units not validated currently and am unwilling to assign additional resources......

        Just my opinion: if you want volunteers to help with your work load / research, act professionally and manage your project. Just my two cents!

          I agree and also set "No new tasks" for this project. I am willing to donate resources to BOINC projects, but I don't like it when those resources are wasted. Lots of tasks I reported after the server allowed me to report them were later sent to other computers to be processed again. A waste of resources.
          I fully understand that projects cannot be managed on a 24/7 basis, but there is a limit to what I find acceptable (at the very least once a week). This project does not seem to meet even that minimum requirement as there have been multiple incidents that took longer than a week to fix. This combined with the total silence from the administrators made me decide to set "No new tasks". I will not enable this project again until we get a message from one of the administrators of this project regarding the level of administration/support we can expect over here. Fortunately, there are plenty of other projects to choose from.
