    Adam:
    Since the update, I have had 20 WU\'s with 0 credit.
    16 of those used very little time to run and claimed 0 credit, therefore granted credit of 0. I understand these.
    However, the following 4 took longer time to run and had a significant claimed credit with 0 granted credit.
    I do not understand why these were not granted some credit. Other computers running the same WU\'s were granted credit.
    I\'m not the only one seeing this: see Ad@m\'s BLOG (page 2)
    Here are the 4:
    3987 997 9 Dec 2005 20:24:32 UTC 10 Dec 2005 19:40:26 UTC Over Success Done 4258.66 9.1 0

    Thanks,
    Richard

        I have also results with 0 granted credits.
        For example for this WU I received 0 cr for my result.

        These 0 cr results were completed with after preempting.
        I have this text in the stderrout log:


        <core_client_version>5.2.13</core_client_version>
        <stderr_txt>
        Fraction init: input_size=104462 start_pos=61
        Kezdes 1. sortol.
        Fraction init: input_size=104462 start_pos=61
        Ujrainditas checkpointbol, 362 sort mar feldolgoztunk es 362 sort kiirtunk
        Kezdes 363. sortol.
        Input vege, 1000. sort dolgoztunk fel

        </stderr_txt>


        Another result that is successfull has:

        <core_client_version>4.45</core_client_version>
        <stderr_txt>
        Fraction init: input_size=104462 start_pos=61
        Kezdes 1. sortol.
        Input vege, 1000. sort dolgoztunk fel

        </stderr_txt>

        Is this problem becouse of checkpoints?

          There have been many cases of \"zero credit\" through the life of the project. In some cases, Adam has gone back and fixed it and credit was awarded. In other cases, he promised for months to do so but never did, and those results were deleted with the upgrade to V5 so now cannot be given credit.

          Between that and all these current problems (which I thought is _why_ the delay to installing V5, to TEST?), plus changing the WUs with no notice (and taking out checkpoints!) at the same time as the upgrade, I\'ve given up. I feel sorry for Adam trying to run a one-man operation, but my CPU time can be better spent somewhere that is willing to provide the minimal resources to run a BOINC project. SZTAKI got 5K credits worth of time from me. If it\'s still around in a year or two, and appears to be decently run and managed, I\'ll check back.
