Anyone else getting impossible runtimes? I have jobs running from 2-4 days, which seem kind of greedy, but then I have a task that says 19 hours elapsed, 28 days and 11 hours remaining, due on December 2.

It's not even worth calculating, because it's impossible to complete.

I have 24 cores, and all of the U@H work items are single CPU.

I'm all NVIDIA, so the ATI jobs don't run for me.

More digging, and this seems to be a known issue.

SOP seems to be to abort any WU with an estimated runtime over 6 or 8 hours.

All of the frustrations have already been discussed, with the most exhaustive thread being here:

It seems either monitor closely all the time, accept wasted cycles, or set to "No new tasks".
