Too short deadlines is an old problem with BURP. I'm still standing at 98,xxx% (yes the classical BURP 98%....) with a couple of units for the second day while the computation deadline was... Yesterday!

After all those years, once might have thought there was a substantial capacity of learning by doing, but... No. It' seems impossible to get even as little as one week longer deadline. Is it this that makes the Rendering Project, Ugly???

Some sessions just take longer than others. BURP doesn't abort the WUs like other projects so you're not going to lose any credit. The short deadlines are a necessity to make sure the renders get done and back to the artists in as short a period as possible, the only thing that happens after the deadline is that another replication is issued.
