The yafu server has limited download bandwidth. So attach to the project before challenge start date to download the app.

33h passed, but 5 of the 12 teams are not crunching WUs :-( Is there a problem with the WUs or did those 5 teams gave up too early ?

You download a 3 hour WU, and it finishes 5 days later than the guesstimate most of the times!

And takes all your cores with it during those 5 days! (but I've had WUs going on for more than a week too)...

You cannot estimate the time of NFS Square Root, factors can be found on first dependency or 5th, it's also in function of SNFS and GNFS difficulty, composite size, sieved relations gathered. This is why the guess estimate will always be wrong.

Then why not start from the worst case scenario, and adjust from there? Now it seems like the other way around. Error is within the BOINC-Client of course.
