The distribution of tasks in the SETI@home project is somewhat erratic lately.
Less CPU tasks are distributed to the benefit of GPU tasks.
The RAC of all teams suffer a considerable subsidence and atypical.
Does anyone have some more information on these changes particularly in the abnormal distribution of tasks ?
Perhaps this is normal and cyclical but I had never seen this before with regard to the extent of the phenomenon.
Thanks for your answers.

you are not kidding. I have two 5 core machines "full to the hilt" of Seti tasks, and I really mean full to the hilt, over 2000 hours of caculation on EACH machine and that can be 40 minute and 5 hour tasks.
My question is this. Who drives the stuff into my machine, and am I being given hell by NOT WANTING ABC tasks when I didn't ask for them.
There are a lot of tasks in these two computers that cannot possibly be processed so whats the point of providing not just dozens of tasks but hundreds.
I am ONLY interested in SETI, and other stuff bores me silly, so whats the sense in overloads, it will get wasted.
