Bloody Hell!!! I was half way through signing up before I'd finished reading your post ;-)

Wonder what I was actually signing up to?!

I think EAH should send out four Albert work units, like SAH, that may reduce the credit pending problem.

And I hope we're still giving Jim Fekete some of the answers he was after

Einstein used to send out 4, just like Seti. It was only recently they changed to sending out only 3 initial WU's. It slows down validation, but they feel that it increases their computational power.

Message 23991 in response to message 23990

how do / did they compute the score- i love it wheni crunch with 2 big clusters like physics and s* speaking for erlin- i report 30, they report 8 and 9 and i et 9... wish the clusters only crunched with other clusters scorewise cause their low score is inversly proportionate (sp?) to the computing power sorta; seems like more power lower score till you get to some of the p3's that'll take 10k secs to report 15 credits. dunno

There are problems with Linux machines having low benchmark scores. So, you have been linked up with them for some of the work and this hurts you in the great cobblestone race.

The later generation BOINC Client Software has a new mechanism and we have hopes that this will eliminate this problem once and for all. The first test will be with SETI@Home Enhanced. Bruce Allen said he would look into it for Einstein@Home. BUt, it will have to wait for another update to the application before we would see a change.

Problem's kind of bad because there are so many more WUs in a datafile now, so the pairings in co-crunchers go on for more WUs. You could be in a much worse situation, do you realize that? That could be you, crunching on a linux box and hoping for a couple of Windows machines to come along and pull your low scores up to normal.

Easily cured by running the optimized Linux client found here:

My claimed is actually better than most unoptimized Win clients. Check it out:
