I had five stuck for ten hours, but they just finished uploading a minute ago. I think things will get back to normal soon, though there is undoubtedly quite a backlog to clear up.

There were two basic version of the Pentium 4 in its later life: Northwood, which was good and reasonably power-efficient, and the later Prescott, which wasn't. I think with the 2 MB cache, you have the Prescott; the Northwood had 512 kB (L2). But the longer pipeline in the Prescott required a larger cache to ameliorate the effects of cache-misses.

Intel adopted the more energy-efficient Banias core (originally developed for laptop PCs) for their next line of CPUs, which became the Core and later Core 2 series. I still use a Core2 Duo (E8400) to support a couple of GPUs. It also works OK on Asteroid, but I would not use anything earlier.
