We will be running some testing off and on over the next few days with sextant to test and document what looks like a problem with the trivial validator with a quorum of 1. You may well not get credit for a WU, but it will help us figure out what's going on.

No changes to the application, for now.

Does quorum of 1 means that the credit granted for the workunit is (or should be) equal to the credit claimed by the first host to report it?

Eric, if you get 4 or 5 units, here Eagle Eye would like to recomend a longer time of return for the unit so the poor guys like me, that have several projects, will get the opportunity to be of help and not jus receive messages saying: Pirates@Home - 2005-01-27 03:44:52 - Message from server: No work available (there was work for other platforms)

or the other one saying: your machine could not have returned the result on time. Jeepers Creepers!! that is annoying! Give a longer returning time - please -

Keep up the good work!!
