Hi,

I noticed recent tasks with names starting with "w3mass" can be ending very fast.
I know this can happen with lhc@home, but I was wondering what kind of work this task is doing that make it more likely to end faster.

Hi; I'll have to ask Massimo but I believe these
are the first exploratory studies ovr a wide range of
amplitudes. Some of the tasks will hopefully run lomger.
Will let you know more later )I am on vacation bit working
when I can). Eric.
