I get a message stating "Project temporarily unavailable" when I try to attach another computer to this project. It is a Win10 machine.

Dear Admin:

Your ~1 hour estimate is wrong.

I have several computers with YAFU tasks still running well after 1 hour. For example a C2D E6420 @ 2.133GHz has task Yafu_C97_1315917330_94_0 so far at 6 hours 20 minutes and continuing. Progress is stuck on 0.000% (I'm sure I posted about the Progress % not updating but the post seems to have disappeared).

Also another Windows 7 machine this time a Core 2 Quad 6600 G0 stepping @ 2.40GHz. It has a C97 task at over 4 hours and still running.

What has happened is that the tasks clog up the system so they time out. I checked the E6420 and changed the settings preference so that tasks remain in memory. On the Q6600 this was already set.

On the E6420 I reset the project last night as so many tasks were not going to complete. The BOINC estimate was over 4 hours. After the rest stupid thing set the YAFU estimate a 17 minutes - crikey. What happened to the "I increased the estimated time per task" adjustment you made?

Better to err on the side of caution like for example CAS@home where the initial tasks are estimated at several hundred hours. This allows BOINC to self correct the run time and you don't have a swag full of tasks cached.

I am no mathematician but I don't understand the urgency of this sieving project in getting tasks from a factordb crunched in under 10 hours. If the time-frame is so short why not run the project from GPUs like the PrimeGrid Project does for its PPS sieving sub-project? If it remains as a CPU project then I concur with the other posters and strongly urge the project administrator to increase the time limit to several days.

The progress indicator in percentage format doesn't change during a task being crunched. All mine stay on 0.000%

I am receiving tasks to crunch but the server status page shows the Upload / Download server status as Disabled.

Clearly it is not.
