So far your computers have not returned any computational results yet. But hopefully they will do so in the coming days. And yes, once this happens you WILL be helping in our search for gravitational waves. If you want to read more details, please see the 'Report on preliminary S3 results' posted on the front page of Einstein@Home, left hand column, near the bottom.

Yes, you've accumulated some credits, so you've done useful work for our project! Thank you. And please, keep it up.

The basic rule: as long as you are accumulating credit, you are doing useful scientific work.
