Increased VM RAM size to 256MB. This'll hopefully stop that furious swapping that was happening on Linux.

Compacted the VM image from 1.9GB down to 1.6GB. The compressed image is 446MB. I'll see if theres anything more I can strip out of the VM at a later date. I might be able to strip it down by another few hundred MB.

Released 3x the number of test work units as before. There should be around 1500 ready to go.

Thank you for the Update ...

As for enough work nope .... 368 users scooped up the 1500 work units and here are the rest of us on the evening of the same day with nothing to work on and a weeks wait for the next batch.

I was wondering about that since I thought I had read double the work and I didn't get that much work this time around...

I think next time he shouldn't say anything when he increases that way the lurkers don't come out and take them. ;) I finally hit my POGS goal and was looking to get some good Duchamp time in...

We're going to have to take measures next time...

Just following up, have there been VBox memory issues with the latest SoFiA client?

Just started the latest batch and both cpu's on my linux mint box are running at about 98% most of the time. Much better than before when one ran at about 47%. I still get the occasional drop but this seems to be at the end of the tasks just before and during uploading.
