I have 5 "Pending Validations", 3 from last year.

Thoughts?

It is a consequence of the BOINC server code. In many projects,credit is not given till a second computer confirms the result of the first. With CPDN tasks only get completed once and don't go to a second computer to confirm the result and credits are based on the trickle up messages sent back to the servers rather than only on completed tasks.

Short answer is, "Ignore it!"

While there are things you can do to minimise the risk of tasks crashing, invalid theta is usually the task has produced an impossible climate e.g. -ve pressure. In computing preferences it is worth ensuring keep non gpu tasks in memory while suspended is ticked. If I get the chance before anyone else I will put up some of the others. The completed tasks however are all fine despite the validation pending tag.
