Can someone look over this:

http://burp.boinc.dk/workunit.php?wuid=24807

Did the system select the correct canonical result?

On the topic of the longer processing times - patience is paying off:

Now I just need to wait for another unit to trickle in.

No it didnt! It\'s strange how that one came back saying \"Success\" 0 CPU time, since the error was in downloading :\\

Canonical result was *computed* using outdated BOINC 4.19
Canonical result was sent before deadline...unlike the *correct* one.

Weird...perhaps not fair.

Would these types of occurances effect the overall quality of the render?

I think yes - if wrong canonical result is selected (here the one with actually no results/render), blank screen will appear for this frame.
In this session, only a 1/32 part of a frame will be affected.
But correct results has been sent as well, so it can be fixed ex-post.

Right now the validator doesn\'t really verify anything in the frame. Janus said it in this post.
