Ah, shoot. Sorry about that...

What happened was a user reserved these 2017-12-11 19:48:45, and then the system recycled them 2018-01-14 17:50:57 because they were over 30 days old, and the user hadn't completed any work since 2016-05-31.

They were then assigned to you 2018-01-14 18:37:03, and then the previous assignee completed them somewhere around 2018-01-18 20:35.

Again, sorry about this. If it helps at all, you got the credit for the work on GPU72. Further, GPU72 tries its best to only recycle assignments which genuinely appear abandoned.

Thanks for clearing it up!
Must be coincidental that the user submitted within the four days the exponent was assigned to me. I am assiduous with efficiency, as long as the components draining power source are contributing even the smallest amount, I'll be satisfied.

Looks like it happened again. Exponents were fetched automatically via MISFIT on November 18th. Completed TF work on November 20th. Errors popped up with these three exponents being completed via the same user on November 19th. Has any tweaking been done with the server lately?

Sigh... Sorry about that.

No, no tweaking on the server, exactly. What happened is the user in question stopped submitting results, and 11 assignments were past their expiry date. I reached out to the user but didn't get a response, so I let the server recycle the assignments...

I do my best to avoid this kind of thing, but sometimes happens, particularly with a large number of disparate participants. The good news is out of tens of thousands of assignments a year, this kind of thing very rarely occurs.

I know it doesn't help much, but you did get the credit on GPU72 for the work.

That was a very fast response. Glad to hear that these errors were on a minuscule scale. Thanks!

Duplicate assignments now appear to be happening in the 98M range.

There also appear to be minor issues with manual reporting of results for expired assignments that were subsequently reserved.

Not a big deal, just a minor annoyance.

Just for the record, GPU72 is not involved in the 98M range. Nor, for that matter, anything above 96M (inclusive) at the moment.

Some are working up there, but it can be a bit of a "wild west" kinda situation....

Sorry, Chalsall. I just assumed this was some kind of hiccup with the reservation system, not an actual poaching. I'll finish my current reservations and then find some other range to harvest with my GPU.

Please don't apologize. However, you might want to have a word with monst. He should have known better....
