Message 50499 - Posted: 13 Sep 2018 | 21:26:32 UTC

Hi,
I'm not sure how the deadline is counted. I can't find it now but there was written somewhere on the website that the deadline is extended at 50% for every day-after-day when your computer crunches. So if I crunched for 4 days and my deadline was 10.09 why on 13.09 is "too late for validate"? I'd really like to understand it.
I'm sorry for mistakes, I'm not native.

That's quite simple: the deadline is 5 days for the GPU workunits.

I can't find it now but there was written somewhere on the website that the deadline is extended at 50% for every day-after-day when your computer crunches.
You're mixing two different things here:
The daily quota of tasks is increased by 1 after every successful task.
The granted credit has 50% bonus for returning the result within 1 day.
The granted credit has 25% bonus for returning the result within 2 days.

There is no limit however, it doesn't make a difference because as soon as you send an errored unit the number will come crashing down to 10

This work Unit was listed as #1 for TIMESTAMP accomplishment under PERFORMANCE
today; obviously the deadline was extended hundreds or thousands of times. After all today is 3 December 2019!!!! Wow. I must be missing something here.

just a side question, out of interest: I know that the GTX770 is card which gets rather hot.
The temperatures cited above are your "regular" crunching temperatures? For how long has the card been working with these temps? For several years?

If you compare the "Sent" and "Report Deadline" date, you can see that the deadline was exactly 5 days. The "Received" date tells that the workunit was received 10 hours before the deadline.
Showing this workunit on the performance page is obviously due to an error, as it should show results of the "Long" workunits (this one is a "Short" wu) from the last week (not from more than 5 years ago).

Gentlemen/ladies! Kindly look at the time stamps on the referenced task:
The Created date WAS 2014; THE Sent date was 2014; The Received date was 2014.

The year Today is 2019!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is the computer performance graphic I refer to which I copy and pasted from the GPUGrid home page under the PERFORMANCE tab (scroll down to bottom right) that lists 21 tasks in order of GPU performance ratings.

On rechecking, the complete graphic is based on 2014 data.

As has been explained to you,the Performance page is FUBAR and meaningless. Bad data inexplicably retrieved from the ancient bowels of the project.

The page needs to be rebuilt for the current project.

Are we still getting the bonus points for a 1 or 2 day return?
