With 117K + work units backlogged, is there a chance the all-mighty scientists will say "Where are my results? I thought LHC@home had lots of CPU power." Then they may lose patience with us. ? ?

Probably not... but why risk it?

I say double the quota. 16 work units a day. Let's get on this thing - - let's do our jobs!

I won't start nagging for immediate quota alterations, I'm sure the LHC people are able to find a good solution themselves when there is substantially more work(I mean for a longer period of time). But I still wanted them to know that there are hosts that are able to do at least 12 times at much work as they are doing now. It would be stupid not to use these resources when LHC will be going full speed.
