Running a Windows machine and have been gone a while... and when I re-established today, it didn't download any work units.

Anything specific going on or just nothing available for windows? I really enjoy this project and want to keep working on it.

There hasn't been any Windows work for months.
There's a "New Work Announcements" thread in Number crunching that tells people when some is.

Or more often when there has been because if one of the moderators doesn't spot the batch going out, by the time we see it all tasks have gone with so many computers asking for work.

Four Windows tasks went out at the end of last month on the testing branch to test the latest version of WAH2 code. Sometimes but by no means always, tasks in testing herald batches on the main site.

That assumes that the testing goes well.
