The Big X I think tells you that your WU won't complete on time.

Ah. Sorry. It will just send back the work you've done and you still get credit for it.

If you just got the WU and it red-Xes just wait until another frame completes and it will most likely correct itself.

RUN! IT'S THE BIG RED X!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, ignore it. You could have a rig that was shut down for a little while or the folding client went to a really low cpu utilization (such as when you're gaming) for an extended period of time.

Sooooooooooooo........... when EMIII looks at your log file and notes that you had frames that took an excessive amount of time, it will through the big red x to warn you. The only rigs I have ever seen out-right fail a time cut off are computing with cpu's under 200Mhz. I have 450's and a 500 that run just fine.

Do not fear the X!
