The current batch of WUs take less that twenty minutes to run on my machine anything longer than that results in error. So I abort the longer WUs so save my computer wasted processing time.

Also nanoHUB's setup of VirtualBox is a resource hog that I would like to minimize on my computer as it stands I set my machine up to limit the project to only two WUs at a time.

They probably choose a time limit so that the slower machines can finish them. But that wastes time on the faster machines when errors occur.
I think they should shorten the timeout. Catering to the lowest common denominator is probably not the most efficient use of resources.

It seems that the Windows machines do not validate. A large number of your validate errors have validated OK on Linux machines.
And I have never gotten a validate error that I can see on my Ubuntu machines; only "Error while computing", and not too many of them recently.

So they need to adjust their validator (or app) accordingly.

PS: Are you overclocking? That will kill any science project.

NO overclock on any of my PC's.
