Take a look: http://einsteinathome.org/host/67180/tasks

Why sometimes is my computer saying it did zero CPU usage, when in fact it did not, and to prove that point it was actually granted credit?

This seems to be happening alot more lately(IE after the upgrade of the verification program)

Anyone have any ideas?

From what I can see, those that show 0 CPU usage are using the 4.30 Core Client. And I see others on that list that show CPU usage and are using the 4.19 CC. Bug maybe?

Plus, why are your sent dates out of order?

I guess it could be a bug.

I never even noticed the sent dates out of order like that, very strange indeed.

Must be. The results are showing as valid and even though your client isn't claiming credit, credit is being awarded because the result is valid.

I would say that since we are now cleaning up the dregs, so to speak, the workunit ID's are no longer in date order. I'll bet you will find you are getting several different big work files and only doing a few units from each. Your results are being listed in order of WU ID and are therefore not in date order.

Cheers,
Gary.
