Is there any way to get more than one WU at a time? I have it set to 1.5 days.

In full production you would get more, but since we are testing and want to spread
out to the most different hosts we are throttling the work so that everybody gets only
one or two per connection.

once we get said WU, what should we do with it? Just let it run and "crunch" what ever code it has? should we stop it and play with it? or something else that I've not thought of?

I've had a couple of units (thanks!), but the report deadline was only a couple of hours in the future; I am participating in more than one project and had 60 minute rotation. I've had to change it to 20 minutes just to make sure Pirates gets completed before the deadline.

Why the 'aggresive' deadline? Why not say 24 hours? I'd like to put the rotation back to 60 minutes...

Hi Marco,

fine to read, you got some work to do from pirates!
It's in the projects interest to have a "delivery" and "reporting" of work in a short delayed time.
The stuff needs the returned work in a certain delay, to process with and further analyses of the full process.

A short deadline will narrow possible excesses, so user will not stock a to high number of work, because the work will fall outside validation, if reported to delayed.
(It's more fair for all users)

Since a while, with good experiences, I'm running all projects with "rotation", "Switch between applications every" 30 minutes, this works fine for *me*.

The deadline was taken short indeed, but with "normal" client settings (Resource share, not to low) it should fit well.

Goodluck for all waiting for a Work!
