I've removed this project from my Linux hosts, and my suggestion would be that other Formula BOINC participants do so as well, to leave this project back to its usual number of dedicated participants.

Cheers to all!

If I may say a word in my own defense, I really had no idea about the size of this project at all. I joined it a few years ago when I was still a crunching noob and only running Windows, obviously that did not work out! Now that I have some dedicated Linux hosts, I thought I might finally be able to do some work for the project. I was wrong.

It's not the end of the world if my efforts and those of other competitors are unwelcome. I think it should go without saying that we won't repeat our mistake!

Cheers to all my fellow crunchers. :)

I feel as if there is not a really good understanding that we simply need a one-time deadline extension to deal with the thousands of work units that are completed but not able to be uploaded in a timely way due to the server being overwhelmed. Oh well, it will be a loss to everyone including the project if this does not happen.

Yeah, I could simply abort the many hundreds of completed WUs stuck in the pipe if bearnol would simply indicate that they will expire without being credited. Being kept in suspense and having to keep trying to contact the server is just no fun.
