Topic 196929

I run one computer and am on only one team. I've been an Einstein member since April 6/13.

My recent average credit today is 832.85, and my total credit is 19,073. How can I have such a high average credit?

Unknown as long as you have your computer(s) hidden. Then we can only surmising guess at what the crystal orb will say about the outcome of the 8 ball.

IIRC A pentium II (1 core)

IIRC A pentium II (1 core) should give around 200 credits a day...
I think that each core of a Pentium D should be able to double that easily and as it has 2 cores then 800 is not out of reason... Specially on Einstein which gives a bit more credits than the nominal recomended value.

Anyway, the RAC is affected by the timing of the validations and it is a rolling average that wheights more the credits earned recently... so, sometimes a lot of work gets delayed waiting for validation (lowering the RAC) and then in a certain day all that pendings may get validated togheter which will rise the RAC...

In fact counting that you got around 20K total credits in 20 days your RAC should be stabilized at around 1000... But it ussually takes around 2 months to get "stable"...

Two questions (now, maybe more later)

How come the people in my team "Michiganians" mostly have more credits but their average credits are so so low. They've stopped the program, no doubt, except for "Michael," but still, the averages are so very low....did they take them somewhere else or something. I don't understand it at all.

I'm real happy with what I'm getting figuring that when my pc crashed just over a year ago, I bought one for $129.00 used, and thought when I applied at Seti to run they would tell me that they can't use this piece of junk - meaning me or the pc, or both...oh. That didn't include the monitor...using the old "used" one.... all are Dell. I think most people think that you shoud have some pretty pricey equiment to be useful..

The other question is how to I get rid of my "hidden" computer on my account page. I don't remember telling anybody on any form to hide it.

Thank you.

When the word 'credit' is used alone it usually is meant total credit ( to date ). 'Average credit' is really part of 'recent average credit' ( RAC ) which is a rate of credit production. So it's rather like distance and speed. Your total speed now can be low but you may still have come a long way in total. RAC is essentially a rolling average of recent work with decay factors : basically it takes a while to rev up and a while to fade.

Cheers, Mike.

Just look for the

Just look for the Einstein@Home preferences link on your account page on the website. Read the preference settings there and edit the one that gives the project permission to display your computers for all to see. It is perfectly safe to do this as no sensitive information is revealed.

Cheers,
Gary.

If you are logged in on your account page go on "Einstein@home settings"
and there you look after this message

"Should Einstein@Home show your computers on its web site?"

If you change that your computer is not hide.
You can changes this whenever you want.

Thank you. I changed it and don't understand why I didn't find that item before. I looked for over an hour and even went to Einstein preferences and it wasn't there then. My pc must be haunted by the old owners. Anything's possible.

They said to wait till I communicate with Einstein for the change to show up, or with some mysterious client, really.

Thanks again.

The "mysterious client" is simply referring to the Boinc Manager that you can get to thru the Boinc icon down by the clock. Do a double click on it, or a right click and then a left click on the top line where it says "open Boinc Manager". To update that way means you open it, then click on the Projects tab, hilite the project you want to update and then click the update link on the left. We users that micromanage Boinc use this all the time, sometimes to the detriment of Boinc itself! Boinc is designed to run all by itself with very little to no manual user intervention, but some of us do it anyway.
