Thanks, will it be daily now or just every 4 months or so ?

Still no update in stats.
Is no-one there, do you not know how to do it, or do you just not care ?

I have had 200 valid and only 2 invalid in the last two days, with no long runners.
It may depend on OS/CPU/VBox version, or whatever, but they are certainly not all bad.

Also, make sure you have enough memory. They take almost 2 GB per work unit.
People with hidden computers should not expect too much help though.

You seem to have got lucky, well done.

Dataman is having to abort units, look at the errors: https://boinc.nanohub.org/nanoHUB_at_home/results.php?hostid=497

Here is an unknown user, again look at the errors: https://boinc.nanohub.org/nanoHUB_at_home/results.php?hostid=247

I'm running only 1 or 2 WUs at a time, the same OS/CPU/VBox and some work and some don't.
If you're willing to watch and check what you're getting you can abort the bad ones.

Don't be fooled, there are still rubbish WUs out there that will run for hours before failing.
If all you want is Wuprop hours go ahead, if you don't want to waste resources, electricity, time then you need to watch any machine running them and be ready to spot and abort the dross.

Primarily the appalling rate of 'Validate error' status for results that look just like Valid results in the logs.
