hi janus, hi other burp-freaks:)

i\'ve read this thread at seti\'s forum

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=40424

so now i aks you all, if this new boinc feature (cancelling workunits by server which weren\'t needed any longer) could speed up rendering progress on burp? esp. on long sessions like #450 ?!



greets from germany

This feature (aborting workunits that have validated and where the client has not yet begun rendering them) will be put into use at BURP at some point. It increases the overall effeciency of the calculation process as more machines are available for work that actually matters.
