Hey, i got a few lost Work units too. They appear in results as \'in progress\' but i have no trace of them on my computer and therefore just register as no reply.

Bruce and David added a serverside feature to BOINC to resend lost results, but it is currently turned off here because of the size of the result database table (it is currently around 10 times as big as I\'d like it to be due to the 726 session).

The beta system is going to use an entirely different queuing system so that the result table stays small at all times. This way it is possible to run both the \"resend lost results\" and \"delete unused files\" features of the server without affecting performance.
