I've been part of E@H since the beginning and it has taken me since then to earn a credit of 3 million (admittedly, there have been extended periods of time when I wasn't running).  Now, since May, I've doubled that!

It seems that the credit awarded to work units have been increased (for some things, if I crunch on my phone, I get a lot less credit).

My question is, what's up with the credit inflation?

Thanks!

Credit is based on the 'work content' of the particular task being crunched.  Tasks sent to your phone are tiny in comparison to tasks sent to your AMD Radeon Pro 560 Compute Engines.  I don't imagine you had anything like those back in 2004?

That's not the question you should be asking.  The real conundrum is, "Who snuck in those crunching beasts when I wasn't looking?" ;-) :-).

 

Cheers,
Gary.
