I've updated the algorithm which calculates credit in order to deal with credit inconsistencies we've been seeing recently. If you're still seeing wildly varying credit for workunits that take the same amount of time on your machines please let me know. Note that there are some 200-300 workunits in the queue that were still generated with the old credit algorithm so it may take a little time for the new workunits to start flowing out. Hope this fixes things!

Profile searching to find the meaning of life I was lost & desperate. Then God touched my heart & soul and showed me He loved me so deeply as to lay down His life for me. Jesus proves God is Love. Dios es Amor, Jesus demuestra. LPa H

took a VERY long time to finish.
One person aborted after 373,170.7 sec.
The WU took 390,891.5 sec = 108.58 HRS (over 4 1/2 DAYS) to finish on my i-7 machine.
And yet, next to no credit was given, a measly 1,067.31 points.
Could this be adjusted, please?
Thank you.
I think, therefore I THINK I am.
My thinking's neither the source of my being--
not proves it to others.
God Is Love, Jesus proves it
