    I signed up for the SETI WOW event and all things started well. Over night I processed some 20 WU, some already validated, some still pending validation.

    Now since morning I don't get any new tasks assigned. To cross check I also signed up for GPUgrid which gives me work.

    So what could be a reason that SETI don't give me work ?

    I stopped my FAH-CPU slot and allowed BONC to use that. Immediate 100 WU assigned.
    Steep learning curve seems to be. Still nothing for my GPU.

    Question is, are there any GPU-related WUs readily available for download from their servers...?

    Do remember GPUs process WUs much faster than CPUs - many folds... So it's not unusual for those WUs to be exhausted from their WU cache...

    just tonight I got some assigned (OpenCL_nvidia_100, ap*). Of course in the middle of from F@H WU to be finished first. But at least they coming in.

    If the demand is higher for GPU I would hope the project manager can adjust the settings in their backend and react flexible on CPU / GPU setup of donors.

    Is there a way to see how many WU of what type are in a queue ?

    (did some GPUgrid in-between). But to be honest: I like F@H a bit more. There are two thinks which I right now either not understand or just not like: the WU supply and the fact that my finished WU need to wait until some peer finish the parallel assignment of the same WU. This makes quite a big gap between me finishing and seeing the points in the stats.

    Specially in a challenge/Event situation this is disturbing.
