No specific one. Typically questions are asked/answered in a thread about the project. Here is fine since its about the project. Or sometimes there is info in the sub forum:

Have you re-read configs in BOINC MGR after making changes to an app_config.xml file? It may end of restarting one of these long/long2/long3 tasks which would not be fun. The app_config.xml file is placed inside the srbase project folder? The event log will show any errors or if its read correctly that it found it.

You may also need to restart BOINC, to get the settings to stick. I don't remember for sure, but I believe, similar to changing the number of GPU tasks to run concurrently, the settings will only take effect on new tasks.

The 1st long task completed in 160 hours. The others were around 3+ hours behind in CPU time so maybe some more this afternoon. I had actually received like 130 tasks due to the 26s ETA and aborted the rest this morning. I wasn't sure I'd get any of them started before the 7/2 deadline.

Have you re-read configs in BOINC MGR after making changes to an app_config.xml file? It may end of restarting one of these long/long2/long3 tasks which would not be fun. The app_config.xml file is placed inside the srbase project folder? The event log will show any errors or if its read correctly that it found it.
I thought I had it properly placed in the project folder but don't see it there now, or anywhere else for that matter. Don't know how I could have goofed on both operating systems, but I did something fundamentally wrong. I did ask BOINCmgr to re-read config files and though my cc_config was shown, no mention of app_config. in event log. All of this was done a few weeks ago and I just kinda gave up and ran some tasks concurrently. I have a few short(ish) term goals to accomplish at other projects for now (pending the July POTM) but will give it another go mid-month. Thanks for your help.

@tictoc : I had forgotten about the new task aspect. I am almost certain I re-booted the machines at the time and have run quite a few of the shorter variety since then.

POTM Final Totals

SRBase
Start: 30 - Goal: 28 - End: 25 | Goal achieved
TN-Grid
Start: 3 - Goal: 3 - End: 4 | We weren't able to hold off SETI.USA, but 4th place looks to be secure.
GPUGrid.net
Start: 26 - Goal: 24 - End: 24 | Goal achieved.
I am working on the July POTM, and the thread will be up shortly.
*Edit*
July POTM
