OS animation
ok i tried rendering this on my LAN farm but:
after frame 250:
1)duo core 3-4 mins
2)P4 7 mins
3)celeron 1600mhz up to 31 mins/frame
total sum of frames is 1000 so it would take forever
i guess

When you submit a task to BURP it is a really good idea to strip any unused scipts as they add extra time to the checking of the session.

At the end of the upload you get the text \"You can follow the progress here\" and a link to the session page. As long as it says \"Waiting for admin to accept\" then your session has not yet been accepted.
If the session is rejected you get an email telling you what was wrong (and in some cases how to fix it).

No, expolode is only at the svn/rc.

BURP will support it when it is officially released as a feature in Blender. It may take a little while after their release before it is available here - but typically not too long.

No. The version used here is mostly the release version or a SVN version from just after the release. The release candidates and beta versions are known to be less stable or sometimes have errors.

The last little bit of most renders takes a long time... at the beginning there are lots of tasks and lots of workers, so there is fast progress. At the end, however, there is no more work to assign and there is nothing to do but wait for the last few slow computers to finish their tasks.

You have more than one option.
First you get a film which will be availible on the session page.
Typically 3 different qualities.
But as well you can download the raw frames using CATS (which you can do even now,so even before the end of the session. To have a look at CATS you can start here .
