Really? I uploaded a 6904 with no issues two days ago. I do not think that any of my clients have had issues uploading any more than usual. Is it possible that the upload was lost to something else? The WU is typically only deleted when the server rejects for other reasons, rather than a failed upload. If you have backups, you should try sending it again.
I've had WU fail for a multitude of reasons, and you can ask anyone that I talked to about my 2700k woes, I lost my first 3 hugeadv due to random errors on my end, and possibly on Stanford's end.

It was 72 hours, not two days

It's seems I may have picked the wrong week to start. I have done over 170 WU's and only being credited for 120, so far. I think I may shut things down and wait to see how the credit plays out. If in a few days my stats match what my 3 pc's that I'm running show for WU's, I'll continue helping the cause, but if things don't match, I may rethink this folding thing. To me there's no point in throwing energy out the window for nothing. That's going backwards for what the world is trying to do. Conserve energy.
Why don't we all just take a dollar out of our pockets right now and rip it up
This is how many points I show as of now at work. 207,193 points. At home I show 100,000 on my desktop and 30,000 on my G73 laptop. That's 330,000+ points. My stats only account for 129,000 under my name and on Stanfords stats.
Yea, you started on the wrong week. Their servers go down periodically, and nothing is usually noticed (normally downtime is about 3-9 hours however). I think that people need to realize that their servers cooling was down. I'm pretty sure than anyone running a high end rig has had it go offline for a couple of hours, to several days, due to cooling issues.
You need to realize how massive the F@H project is, and that Stanford is dedicated to the people who participate, but as a participant, you need to realize that we are dealing with technology, and there will be glitches from time to time. I've been folding for over one straight year, and over the course of it, I've had my main rig offline for no more than 72 hours. If you're in it for the cause, great. If you're in it for points, great. But the fact is that if you stop folding, you won't get points, and those that continue to trust in Stanford will get points for continuing to do projects while their stats server was offline.
Points are points. I dropped a 6904 during the downtime (worth ~370,000 points, 4 days of continuous folding), and I hope I don't lose it, but at the end of the day, there is nothing we can do about a glitch in the system.
