These are particularly issue rich times, even by Cosmology standards!
Be patient and avoid those reset and detach buttons. It\'ll all be sorted out eventually.

A reset from 60 to 50 per WU seemed fair enough. BUT it seems to have coincided with the average WU taking much longer than before. So for my Q6600 the points per hour per cpu have dropped from about 35 (excellent) to 20 (mediocre). Anybody else noticed this?

As far as I can see the only project more generous with the credits than C@H is QMC. But I prefer the science of C@H and anyway going for the most generous project around feels like cheating. So I'll stick with the second most generous. ;-)

It is strange how things come and go though. Not that long ago Einstein was one of the most generous of projects. Then it became one of the meanest to the extent that I stopped running it for the sake of my team's standing as well as my own. Now, from Saenger's data, which I'm sure is correct, it's relatively generous. Rather than all this trial & error and constant moving of goal posts, you'd think that there would be some generally agreed objective way of measuring the amount of work involved in processing a work-unit?

It's an alpha project. Such errors may happend during this stage. If you can't afford the loose of credit because of bugs, or everything else, just wait it's become a beta project.


Amen


Hear hear! If you don't like Alpha type setbacks then stay away from Alpha projects!

As far as loss of credits goes I'm finding that even with 2/3rd of my work for this project counting for nothing that, because of the generous credits for anything that does get through, my overall credit is on a par with CPDN and other such well established projects.
