from the More Credit thread
Some GOOD news...
I shouldn't really post this here because this piece of news has nothing to do with CAMB 2.16 WUs but I felt this thread was in need of some good, solid, uplifting news.
Everyone that has WUs lying around in their task list which errored out while downloading weeks ago will get 120 credits per every such WU. I know I have around 20 or so myself.
[me got ... drum roll... 3 !!
Some OK news...
I am looking at a few solutions to dynamically allocate credit for WUs instead of having credit set at a flat rate. As Paul mentioned earlier, there are some WUs that are not as work intensive as others while some that take (from Pluk) longer than average time.
With my system:
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz [x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11] (4 processors)
the credit claimed for new WUs has been between 290-330 and I can understand that this is not a good estimate for everyone. On the other hand, between Ben's Grad students, Scott and I we have a fairly good number of trusted CPUs so here is what I have decided to do for now...
This thread seems to indicate very strongly that our users avg out credit at 400 per WU.
I will take the avg claimed credit from all my trusted machines (there are around 10) = N credits.
Finally I will avg the two, so thats = (N + 400)/2 and set that to be the credit granted for CAMB 2.16 WUs till I have figured out a good way to dynamically allocate credit.
I hope this keeps everyone happy for now.
Finally, I would like to mention that both Scott and my finals are going to start in 2 weeks so we will not be as active on the project. I will also be gone for 2 weeks between May 17th and June 1st. I will try to stay on the forums at that time but will not be doing any project development till I get back.
