How are these times per workunit read? Is 37,306.81 in seconds? So that's around 10 hours?

Reason is I shaved off about

Reason is I shaved off about 2 hours per unit by running on Linux Mint 18 Mate, instead of on Windows 10. That's a nice little time improvement.

There are different representations in use in different places.  If you are referring to times shown on task lists on your account page here, such as these recent valid tasks run on you Linux machine, then, yes, both the run time and CPU time are in units of seconds.  For productivity purposes it is often best to focus on the run time as an average of that relates directly to your daily productivity.

On the other hand, the tasks lists in BOINCMgr is in hh:mm:ss format, and that is true of both the current tasks list and the recent history list in BOINCTasks.

That is what happens when I just click the "quote" button as a means of reply.  The web site software encloses the content of the message for which I press the quote button with quote tags, and supplies as argument to the leading quote tag the user name--or at least it is supposed to.  For the previous message I did not inspect what it had done.  For this reply I have hand-modified the pre-populated argument to match what I see as user name on your message.

Were you ever mikel_5 here?  If not, I think we have a reportable web site bug on our hands.

The difference of the

The difference of the username as displayed to the left along with other info about the poster and the username displayed when quoting is a known problem and should be fixed in time. The forum takes the Drupal username when quoting instead of the Boinc username.

Ah, yes. I think I did originally use my real, full name when I signed up. Mikel is my first name. Embarassed
