Has anyone successfully completed tasks from these batches? I have noticed there is quite a high failure rate with two different errors,
One a create thread error occurring any time between the task starting and after 4 or more trickles have been uploaded, and the other, "The storage control block address is invalid."

Faster machines should have finished some of these by now.

I finished 2 706 tasks yesterday. I have one 707 and one 708 running at about 2/3 done.

And it looks like over 200 completions for 706 at this time.

Thanks George,
I wonder if it is something in the physics of these tasks that is causing these errors then?

https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=21015904 Is one from 706 with the create thread error, this one after 8 trickles. I haven't been able to spot any common factors among the failures.

Hey, we can always blame Intel Spectre patches for unexpected system instability. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4078130/update-to-disable-mitigation-against-spectre-variant-2 I'm kidding...maybe. :-)
