During normal working hours Monday to Friday, the servers may be serviced or off-loaded every hour or so. But from late Friday night until early Monday morning, that is "skeleton crew" time! Servers may not be off-loaded for up to 12 hours or more.
The results of all WUs have to be compared to a standard model, before they are credited.
And if a server takes in a lot of WUs, it may be "full" and can't accept any more.. then you are redirected to another server. And the server that has your account will go down for maintenance every now and then.

Just keep plugging along. You will be credited for all your work. It sometimes takes up to 5 days to post credits. Depends on staffing.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
