Hi Michael,

I checked out the result in question, and this is what the stderr said:

SETI@Home Informational message -9 result_overflow
NOTE: The number of results detected exceeds the storage space allocated.

Check out the other returned results for this WU:
They also show a -9 result overflow error.

So it wasn't a computational error, but rather a signal overflow (which is normal and should be ignored). Most noisy WUs reach this threshold very quickly, some take quite a bit of time. It seems that the optimized apps produce different result files than the stock app sometimes when they error out in this way; I'd put it down to Karma, or better yet, blame Misfit ;)

"Outcome   Validate error" means the validator couldn't find the result file when it was asked to. That's a server side problem, nothing to do with the application.

There's a thread on the Number Crunching forum for posting your results showing that problem, there's a slight possibility Eric Korpela may run a script to retry validation on such units.

Huh... don't shock me like that again  :P

First time i read that validation error post it was like a dejavue ( is that correct speling ? hmmm ...)
The only thing that is "wrong" there is that it shows "xT" but that's just a cosmetic glitch.

I want to share something with you: The three little sentences that will get you through life. Number 1: Cover for me. Number 2: Oh, good idea, Boss! Number 3: It was like that when I got here.
