I just had three WUs that had not even started yet, and whose Due Dates were in mid Dec, show this status

I checked them and all have two other results that have completed and validated.

I know that this is an old slow machine, and that I run multiple projects on it, but this is the only project that this has occurred on. If it continues, I may as well just drop Seti Beta, 'cause I'll never get any credit on this machine anyway

The project switched to initial replication of 3 a few months ago to help in finding reliable builds for ARM/Android devices. It is a temporary condition which doesn't play well with your ~16 day turnaround, so a majority of your tasks will indeed probably be no longer needed before your host starts them.

But there's enough variety in computing resources and settings among users here that there should be a minority of the tasks where your host does useful processing. I suggest staying on unless there's an unusual cost for you related to downloading WUs which are later aborted.

OK, thanks

We'll give it a try and see how it goes.

I'll go ahead and leave SETI Beta active, but I'm never gonna get any credit on this machine

The combination of send three, accept the first two back and discard the third and a 7 or 8 week deadline and the fact that I run multiple projects on this box means the the Scheduler keeps accepting WUs from other projects that have closer deadlines, and then shifts them ahead of those from SETI Beta
