The database is now 200GB and I need to do some housekeeping to extend it for the next run. Should be back again by Wednesday or Thursday.

But it's getting cold in the UK now - what are my computers meant to do if they're not heating my house? ;-)

After one week, some tasks will expire soon and will be resent. Isn't time to limit the number of tasks downloaded by new hosts until they prove to be reliable?

BOINC requirements for a reliable host : 2% good results, 98% bad results (worst case)

This is not my weird phantasy, it is coded on server side.

p.s.: I posted the bad code and the bugfix in several projects and in the BOINC forum already - without much success. The RNA World scientist picked up that hint lately though and might try to do something about it.

7 days of deadline for resents is too long.
