Hi boincsters,
I wonder if there is a technical reason why certain tasks last about 10h whereas other tasks (universe_bh2_160803_203_22084978_20000_1_999999_85200_2 for instance) are scheduled for more than 40 days! Is it easier to code this way or is there a fundamental impossibility to cut the task in sub-tasks ?
Furthermore, is it worth the computation if I my estimated remaining time today is 37 days when the deadline is december 5th ?
Thank you for any of your help.
