Since my last post on the 22th of jan, another 3 crashed. I stopped running CPDN. There is another problem if one is in for the points. After the 10th trickle (8,33333%), for which points are granted, the program jumps back about 0,3% and starts calculating again. It then crosses the 8,3333% line again and sends another 10th trickle for which no points are granted.

Then at the point where sulphur hits the 11th trickle, things go wrong - files not found or whatever. The 11th trickle is not granted and the programm crashes.

Now in my case, it takes about 8,5 hours to do a trickle. So if I was in for the points, I loose about 12 hours of computingtime in points.

I\'ll be back computing on CPDN if the programm runs OK.

Happy crunching to all

You only get credits once per trickle number. Re-starts will need to get past the last point crunched before you get more credits.
If you DON\'T have: Leave applications in memory while preempted? set to \'Yes\', then your model will restart from the last saved position, which may be a long time ago.
