    The OET work units are much larger than the last batches. So big that they aren't running them on any ARM devices.

    Reports are showing run times between 8 and 20'ish hours on somewhat modern CPU's. Points per hour are also being reported as worse. Just some things to consider if there are any challenges in the near future. Also, this project is the next expected to end. So, if anyone has any badge goals and what-not, they may want to keep all of this in mind.

    Yeah I was wondering why one of my machines was falling behind and noticed it chewing on a bunch of 10+hr OET projects

    My reduction for summer is coming soon as well. Almost hit my current WCG goals before new projects are released. Other than that it is typical upgrade all badges and hit 1 million points at a couple projects but that can wait for cooler temps.

    The new privacy settings at WCG also affect the recruitment list. I have at least one recruit that has chosen to keep it private. I don't know if they are aware, but that also means their stats will most likely not export as well. Time will tell I guess as they are still working things out.
