Default Too long??

I know that it can take a while to receive a new work packet, but one of my machines has been trying to send results and get a new packet since 8:00PM last night.
Doesn't 10 1/2 hours seem a bit excessive?

Could be any number of reasons. I've had that happen before.
Any of these error messages in your log? - http://fahwiki.net/index.php/Common_Error_Messages

Other than that, try a restart.

"Couldn't send HTTP request to server" was the message, but has been working fine until now.

Stanford has been setting up a new server so it's been having some teething issues. It's been going on all last week.

yes I have been noticing this lately and even lost a WU last week.

I will be glad when they finally have the servers working properly.
