I finished a work unit, but I'm unable to send it. And I'm also unable to get a new work unit as well...:(

Does this happen often? If so, how long are the servers usually down?

Ok...now that I've finally connected...i've gotten a new work packet. However, my "stats" on my computer states that I only have 2 Finished WUs!:eek::confused: (graphical version on Windows)

I should have three but I don't

Whats going on? I don't want to lose five points... :(

They have been especially bad this last week, probably due to releasing new proteins to be folded.

It takes some time for new WUs to show up on the stats page, so don't fret too much about it. :)

The servers can be down from hours to days (~2 days max I've seen it out). But it's usually out for just hours.

I'm not worried about that...its just that the work unit never got sent! :eek: I looked in the Folding at Home folder, and the results for that work unit are still in there! I don't think it got sent!?! Won't I miss the deadline?:confused:

Ok....I've been trying for over three hours to get a new work packet...but I keep getting refused by the server. I've shutdown and restarted F@H...etc.
