The problem: my old X2-3800 running at stock, now, won't make the deadline. If I'd ever had success transferring SMP WU's from one machine to another and back again, I might consider moving it to another machine temporarily and then moving it back for the final 1% and upload, but I've usually gotten a checkpoint error and a restart from 0% after 2 transfers. Bah. I could quickly buy a mobo for my old C2D 6400 and move it to that thing, and it might make it. But I'd have to get the thing within the next 2 days, and even then it might not make it (as of this typing under 55⅔ hours until bonus runs out and the WU is re-issued by Stanford, and after less than 21.25 hours it's already ~3⅓ hours behind).
Stanford has basically eliminated any possibility of sneaker netting on nearly all of the newer work units. I blame some paranoid IT twit for fixing a problem (duplicated WUs) that was already detectable, but maybe now they think they don't even need to check for them. A secondary downside for we the contributers is the server issuing duplicate WUs that might not be noticed by us and thus wasting a full work unit processing cycle. I've heard that sneaker netting is still possible as long as the Stanford issued system id numbers are identical (move the entire folding folder?), but I have not bothered to try it.
--- edit 2 --- "Bonus points" constantly decline and then finally expire completely at the Preferred deadline (WU reissued), but the basic (listed) points are still fully available until the Final deadline.
