The workunit now went to a third person who will likely chew on it for 100 hours. This looks like an awful waste of resources :-(

And so it happened. Task now ended as "Too many total results" so 3 people wasted 100 hours each on this task :-(

[Normal BOINC behaviour is:

When you return a valid result after the deadline and before a wingman has returned a valid result of the resend, your result will be used and credit granted.
When a wingman returns his resend after you and before his deadline, he will get credit too.


I was the second to receive my workunit https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/workunit.php?wuid=131787969 but neither my predecessor nor I received credit. The workunit now went to a third person who will likely chew on it for 100 hours. This looks like an awful waste of resources :-(

I have one task that is currently at 93,94% after running for a little over 90 hours. It now shows in my task list as "Timed out -no response". With 6 more hours to completion, does this still add value to science or is this just wasted time and should I abandon this task?
