Hi TJM,

Are we down because we ran out of work, or because there's a bunch on "invalid" WU's when we upload to the server?

There's no work available atm, only resends. I'll create new workunits later today if I find enough time, otherwise it will have to wait until tomorrow morning.

The server is out of work again, I have to patch several parts of the server code before I can resume with more M3 workunits.
The server lacks support for third dictionary set that I plan to use soon and currently there is no support for 'dynamic' ciphertext, which would allow testing sequences of letters if there are any known missing, like in the one currently running.
The patch for this is currently work in progress and there is small chance that I'll finish it today, but the changes are huge so it's also possible, that the first batch of workunits will be broken.

You're lucky, mine says the server is still out of work. I'll crunch for ABC@Home until I get some WU's....

Those 3 were probably resends, because I released only a small batch yesterday and all workunits in it were broken (download errors) so I cancelled them quickly :-P
Right now there's a lot of work in the server queue and there will be even more tomorrow. I just hope that there are no major bugs, this is a completely new type of workunits where the ciphertext is also a part of the keyspace so I had to change a lot of things.
Unfortunately these workunits will be affected by the progress indicator bug, they're too short so I had to adjust their length in a way not supported by the current wrapper code - leaving them at default length would probably eat my monthly bandwidth on the download server in just few days.
