It's possible you got some WUs like that.

Here is what you can do.
1. Open the Boinc Manager
2. View Menu and make sure you're using advanced mode
3. Go to the 'tasks' tab
4. If you want, select all WUs which are NOT application '(321) LLR'
5. Abort those WUs
6. At this point, you should be processing 321 WUs exclusively

Hope this helps.

It looks like I had a bunch of PPS (sieve) workunits, they've been removed. Thanks!

My server which has 64 cores won't accept boinc for some reason, so can't crunch on that and hadoop seems to not accept boinc as a acceptable program to run across my other servers in my room so here goes a minimum 256 cores down the drain, I'll try to get them to install boinc. No luck so far, will update team stats every 4 hours.
All my machines currently crunching:

Toshiba L750 - Sandy Bridge i5 3.2 Ghz
Lenovo SL500 - Penryn Core 2 Duo 2.26 Ghz
Asus K52F - Westmere 2.3 Ghz
Sony Xperia X10i - ARM A8 1.2 Ghz
Desktop rig #1 - Intel Pentium II 4.6 Ghz
Nokia E63 - RISC 0.4 Ghz

The last 3 computer rigs won't complete in time.

Try and do:
Server rig #1-3 - each has 64 Intel Pentium Prescot processors at 3.2 Ghz
Server rig #4 - has 16 Intel Core 2 Quad at 1.6 Ghz
These rigs won't accept boinc for some reason

By the way, if you're going to juggle in any extra work, you need to start thinking about that while you still have time to process an extra WU. So for many people, the time to consider it is now. See the link to my juggling guide in the first post for how to do it. Juggling in one WU on a quad-core is difficult; two or three on a quad-core or one on a dual-core is easy. It looks like I could maybe juggle in two, but this one computer's a quad core so I'm only planning to on the other one.

Juggling ... I'll get at least 38, maybe 40 more WUs (incl. those juggled) in before the end ... approx. 920K points.
Considering that the CPUs are first generation i7-860 and i7-920 and a some quad-core Intels and AMDs without AVX that is not too shabby.
I really need to get some new CPUs (i7-3930) and corresponding OC-friendly mobos - that would be a major upgrade of my systems ...

Maybe another 4-10 WU depending on whether my lappy's overheat.

I'm out. Just completed the last batch of WUs before the end. With an average of 28-32 hours a piece, I won't be able to complete any more before the deadline. Overall I'm surprised I was able to eek out ~1.5million in points for a race (to which I think is a personal record).

Just told my two i7 rigs no more new tasks, they should juggle themselves out pretty well as they decrease from eight tasks to none I might miss a bit of efficiency, but it's looking to be really close right now.

The 3.6 Ghz IVB is doing a WU every ~21 hours, the 3.8 Ghz SB every ~23 hours, a tangible difference there.

Interesting...

Here are some of my numbers.
These are the averaged run time values from the PrimeGrid task list for each of the machines I am using.

AMD Phenom II X6 1045T @ 3.0Ghz ~ 19.3 hours/WU
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q9450 @ 2.66GHz ~ 22.5 hours/WU
Intel Core i5-2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz ~ 20.8 hours/WU

These numbers are kind of too good vs what you guys are posting.
What's going on here? How did you guys calculate your averages?

These numbers are kind of too good vs what you guys are posting.
What's going on here? How did you guys calculate your averages?
Well, my i7's are using HT, so nearly double the time of the tasks that I would see if I did non-HT. I think my i3 2100, which I have running only three tasks concurrently, is at about 14 hours per task.

EDIT (no longer Arse based numbers!):

2500k - ~11.5 Hours (4 Threads) (3.6 Ghz, AVX)
2600k - ~22.5 Hours (8 Threads) (3.8 Ghz, AVX)
2100 - ~12.8 Hours (3 Threads) (3.1 Ghz, AVX)
1240 V2 - ~ 20.5 Hours (8 Threads) (3.6 Ghz, AVX)

There you go.

That is more in line now with advance of technology.
I expect my CPUs to perform like that in comparison to an i7...
I was confused. Thanks for the comparison.
