Everything's fine -- this is a normal automatic notice. These assignments will NOT expire. Just do as the page says -- finish these as soon as you can.

Note that you can't currently get any new assignments because you currently have 30 day's worth of work (based on your production history). If you /need/ an exemption to this policy, let me know.

So you know the history, this policy was implemented many years ago when we had a few bad apples trying to hoard months or even years worth of "premium" work. It also helps with new users who inadvertantly try to "bite off more than they can chew".

I do not know if I'll need an exemption actually...
I've 28 days of work assigned. Almost done the oldest. The "problem" will reappear in few days: I should finish all the job in a week but I'll need four (I've already requested for an extension but I did't have a feedback from the site, so I do not know if this exemption has been granted till I'll see the usual warning message). My VGA can produce something like 140 Ghz Days/Day, nothing more... I'll complete all the tasks assigned to me but I don't like to slow down anything
I've already send an email from GPU 2 72 site askin' to modifying (integrate) my credentials: actually I'm "Anonymous" so, maybe it is for this I can't keeping "Al" up to date about what I'm actually doing and at what pace (i.e. Estimated Completion and Days To Go columns are empty). That is: is there a way to improve my relation with "Al"?
Thanks in advance for answering.
Guido
