All wu of this project have a 5 days deadline
Nothing strange. You simply return them after

Maybe. Never heard of a grace period if a WU is returned a couple of hours too late?

But only 5 days deadline and sometimes quite long running times (as on this laptop) plus the really low credits in comparision to other projects are unacceptable conditions to me.

I only wanted to make 1M full here, the pending WUs will be enough for that and I removed TN-Grid from my machines now. Don't expect me to come back, but maybe it's interesting for you to keep other existing users.

C ya!

As shown in the link above, every project has it's own deadline, depending on their specific needs.
It vary form 1 day (WCG FightAIDS@Home - Phase 2) to 347 days (climateprediction.net)
Every project need a litte optimization made by the user: for exaple on your laptop, you can set to download less work

I optimzed my laptop by removing TN-Grid from it and from all of my other computers too. They will be fine now and no WU will ever again be a second over deadline. Promise.

You should really think about how you deal with volunteers and their effort in this project. Failed WUs because there are some hours over deadline are a waste of time, electric power and money. I've got something better to do, maybe find some prime numbers.

Tschüss!

I'm just a BOINC volunteer like you. Mine was just a suggestion, because you can encounter it with all projects with short deadline
Regarding wu returned too late, my most recent experience has happened with WCG last week: no credit earned
I don't know if others projects take in account that
