Even 120 is low for 7 hours work. I get over twice the amount on MW@Home for the same amount of computer work. So tell me again, why should I keep contributing my computer time here?

Cosmo is now a poor site for credit. 70 credits for 6 hours work - just stupid to continue if you don\'t have a super fast computer.

Cosmology@home stats are not being transfered to boincstats.com. I have done much work for cosmology@home but it is not being forwarded to boincstats.com as it was. Can you look into this????

My computers work on many projects and change projects every 2.5 hours. I too have had this problem. I worked on one C@H workunit for over 2.5 hours and it got to 46% completed before pausing. When it restarted, the progress and time went back to Zero (0). This workunit will never get done at this rate. What is being done to fix this. Remember, it never happened previously. Thanks.

It looks like all of those have received credit.

Lets be honest with ourselves. We are in it for the credit (I know I am.) My CPU are not particularly fast (none over or underclocked). I suppose it makes up for all the other projects where my computers only get a fraction of the credit to what they have claimed. I am sure that if the credit system changes to drastically, you will see many users stop crunching.
