Spheres fall to make picture of earth
Out of many, one. Using UV project, a number of spheres (>1000) fall to make a picture of earth.

I was inspired by and used this Blender Cookie tutorial:

For this session the memory limit was changed from 16MB to a more realistic 1.6GB of RAM.

This session might not using more than 1,6 GB RAM, but could it be, that the server asks for a lot more here?
Because I got this message before getting one of the WUs:
04.04.2013 17:44:25 | BURP | Nachricht vom Server: Blender needs 12899.00 MB RAM but only 12286.37 MB is available for use.
Finally got one after I exited some of my applications.

Sounds like the scheduler tried to send you a unit from Session 1566 - which failed - and then followed it up by sending you one from 1580. I have to agree, though, that the messages from the scheduler are confusing from time to time.

Yeah. Sorry about that. I should have double checked.
