I don't understand this. It completed the long WU and was successful, but received no credit even though the other two computers working on the WU did.

Why No Credit?

I'm also working on another Long WU (23 hrs into it at 59%), should I pull the plug on it. I don't like wasting computer time.

No! Your result was deemed invalid. Meaning that the your result was (slightly) different than the result of the other two. This can happen. Probably the validator needs some fine tuning. (BTW you lost against two Linux host. Different platforms are most likely to produce different results.)

If it did not validate it was not really successfull, it just did not have a serious enough error that it could not finish processing.

In this case though it was

In this case though it was probably due to the early cross platform validation problems.

My early ones validated OK with Mac partners, but the only Linux partner I've had so far is on a later version app with Dr. Allen and hasn't finished yet.
