Dears, just another reminder that we'll soon be upgrading the server software. There will be some down-time.

Even though we planned the transition carefully, we can't anticipate exactly how long will it last (hopefully in the order of hours). Feel free to increase the work cache.

No, this will be a server upgrade only.

Actually as Toni got sick during the evening, we are probably postponing it of one to few days.

How can I increase the work cache? As far as I was aware, GPU Grid would only provide 1 wu per GPU, and not release another one until the first was complete. Adjusting the "Additional Work Buffer" in BOINC Tools to any other number of days, makes no difference whatsoever; I still only get 1 wu per GPU.

I am interested in alternate ways to get more wu's.

We provide *two* WUs per GPU.
The server upgrade is ended, so no need to increase the cache.
You were not getting work because of a temporary problem - just click 'update' and you should be set.
