    Hmmm...these 4 WUs are sitting at around 67% with around 162 hours elapsed.
    I am doubting these will complete by the deadline.

    Not sure if any of my CPU units will finish in time. I may have 12 that will. Doesn't look like any from my fx8120 will finish. After the heatsink issues with that machine, I think there was just too much downtime and I had it running to slow for too long. Time will tell.

    Just had my first group of CPU units finish. Crazy that they are only worth the same as my gpu units. Took the cpu units some 180 hours to complete, whereas my gpu can do it in 17 hours (GTX460).
    I am not feeling so bad that I will only have about 2-4 more cpu units that will finish in time.

    Heh. I remember when I first got DSL 5.5 years ago, I asked them if they had a bandwidth cap or throttling. They acted like I was on drugs or something! I had to explain that I'd seen mention of something like that in Australia.

    Fortunately, they still don' t have a bandwidth cap, but some cable systems do. :\

    Thanks for doing the stats, Ken_g6!
    I have been out of town for a few days (since Thursday evening ...) back again but the crunchers have been behaving well - only one crashed (due to a WCG-WU!).
    Considering it all, that is quite OK ... ;)

    Thanks for the stats Ken & Kiska.

    My last batch of cpu WUs finished up earlier today. I downloaded just 1 WU ; I doubt it will finish in time, but who knows.

    Thanks for that stats everyone.

    Looks like I am just about done. Submitted the last CPU WU that was probably going to finish before the deadline. Still have two more running, but it doesn't look good. I might be able to squeeze in one more GPU unit, but that's going to be close. Good luck to everyone in the final stretch!

    This may also be a good time to discuss the end of the race. After the race finishes, all results need to be validated before the scores are final. If you just abandon your WUs, or detach from the server, they can't be validated for at least 21 days from when they were downloaded. So please either finish or abort your WUs at the end of the race!

    I'll be able to finish one full round on the GPU's. After that, one WU should be for sure.

    One definitely won't. And the third will be really close. The singleton CPU WU will finish on Friday night.

    Less than two hours left!
    So, if you can, check your computers to make sure they've sent in all their tasks!
