I\'m not really sure where this really belongs.

Today I get a lot of these messages:
2008-06-22T19:52:43 CEST|BURP|Message from server: (won\'t finish in time) Computer on 76.7% of time, BOINC on 100.0% of that

Do that mean I\'m required to run burb 24/7 at 360 (or how many days there is in a year these days) days at year?

If so isn\'t that a harsh requirement!

BOINC is using those statistics as an average, to determine if it will finish the workunit before its deadline. BURP workunits have a very short deadline, so that the output is generated in a timely matter. You\'ll still get credit if you return a workunit after a deadline, as long as the session is still in progress.

There are lots of people who run BOINC 24/7/365, but there\'s certainly no reason for you to. Stay attached, and there will probably be a smaller workunit that you can crunch. Having other projects is a good idea, since BURP doesn\'t always have work, and when there is you may not get any of it.

First of, sorry if I seem rude. It\'s not indented.
I basically already know what your saying.
I\'ve been attach to burb a few months now. But this the first time I\'ve got such message as a bow.
I guess my question really was, do that wu require that burb is running 24/7 365 days.
if so is\'ent that a harsh requirement!
I mean there\'s lots of reasons a computer can\'t run 24/7 365 a day.
crashes
hardware error
power shortage
ect..

PS
I\'ve never seen burb not work (well except for this new update :-) )

Did this happen when you already have a workunit running or did it happen when you had no workunits?

If I read these logs right, I actually had a running wu.
