Repeated \"Unrecoverable errors\"
Posted 18 Apr 2006 by old_user163611
After about 2 months trying to contribute to the project, I am giving up. Every work unit has failed with an \"unrecoverable error\", and the software has started a different work unit that has failed a few days or weeks later in the same way. None of the work units have more than 20% completed. As the mean time between failures is a small fraction of the work unit duration, I estimate that I have about a one in a thousand chance of completing any given work unit. At that rate, it is likely to take a few hundred years to complete one work unit.
Unless and until these reliability problems are sorted out, there really is no point in my continuing.
