question, im useing trux with calibration on for e@h opti app from akos(did i spell that right? sorry if i didnt) and im wondering, it just downloaded an s5 unit and app,, should i turn off calibration? or, if i read right the credits for s5 is determind by the server and thus calibration shouldnt matter,,, right? or am i wrong?

sorry if im rambling, im posting this at the same time im trying to trouble shoot a "jerky pc" issue that sprung up from a stupid "idea" the other day involveing port 19 and a dumb idea to point a browser to it... ooops!

btw, i do NOT suggest ANYONE try that, seriously, youd basicly be dos'ing your own pc, it aint fun! took me a half hour to kill i.e. to halt the overload, thus i think its related to this new issue,,, im rambleing agian. sorry! hey, did i just hijack my own thread? lol

seeing without seeing is something the blind learn to do, and seeing beyond vision can be a gift.

S5 credit calculation is entirely server based.

Hi,

seems as if the credit calculation is fixed on server side. something like S@H flop couting, but on server side not client side.

Don't get me wrong now !

Is there any project that will not go that way ?
Leaving "the leveling of playgound" to the "recycle bin" where it belongs ?

Well, CPDN has always decided credit server-side, the same has Folding@Home but granted their BOINC-application is stuck in beta, and now Einstein@home also decides credit server-side.

As you know, SETI@home uses fpops_cumulative, while some rumours has it Rosetta@home will start to use fpops_per_cpu_sec when CASP7 has finished...

This leaves many smaller projects that still atleast for the time being seems to continue to rely on benchmark * cpu-time to decide credit-claims...

Meaning, there should still be ample opportunity to continue running projects that even on the same computer can give 2x variation in claimed credit/hour in the same project due to BOINC-benchmark being all over the place on multi-cpu, and variation of claims will be even higher across computers.
