Why you dont send out the missing parts of the two project to crunching-willing people once more?
Both projects become sluggish since hours.

The sluggishness at the end is probably do to computers like mine that were working on parts from 142 and 143 that only took about 8 min to run, thus BOINC automatically download more units to keep the .5 day queue that I have set up. However, once my client downloaded the new parts from project 144, it still downloaded over 80 units expecting them to take 8 min, but they are taking almost 2 hours. With two hrs per unit, and two units at a time, it will take 80 hours to complete the 80 units (assuming that I don’t do work on any other projects, like SETI). Added to that fact that BURP, as with most other projects, gives the same part to 3 computers, for redundancy checking, it is very possible that those parts are just waiting in a queue to be ran.

this is the host I am refering to: http://burp.boinc.dk/show_host_detail.php?hostid=10479

Well, to me it looks like we are lacking 1 frame for each session. Maybe Janus could manually send out some extra results for these workunits?

Actually it is a backend error. The frame in question for session 142 is this one. It was completed correctly and within reasonable time but never got registered in the backend database and file directory. So the reason why it wasn\'t sent out again was that the system thought it was completed (and it was) but the file never got to the process that assembles the images.
Notice that the WU is done but no preview image shows up. So somehow the BURP and BOINC database systems must have been talking past each other.

Same thing happened for these two WU in session 144:
19821
19359

If fact it seems to be a validator issue. In all 3 cases the canonical result is damaged somehow.
