Hi, just took a look at burp, having not been around for a while, and none of my machines have 12 GB of ram, like some of the tasks are asking for.

Is there any way i can get work?

Oh, and here are the boinc messages pertaining to the issue.

This is on the machine with the most memory, at 3GB, with about 1/2 a GB shared to the video card.

Well, looking at your comps, even session 1243 with the current minimal RAM requirement of 5,2 GB isn't small enough to run it on one of it.
You either have to wait for upcoming sessions which have less requirements or - if your portemonnaie allows it - upgrade your comps with more memory. ;-)
