It fails to meet SETI deadline completely now, maybe some other projects can use it?

Can you make an app_info to get around Server side restrictions?,
i did it on Seti Beta to get around GPU memory restriction of 256Mb,
only enabled me to run in CPU fallback mode through,
also did it on Collatz Conjecture, successfully.
