    OK this story is told a little for Team-Advertising. We all know that credits will not be given for real done calculations! Claimed credits are given for virtual measured CPU speed. Following you can see an example for headless running round OS\'s, they not really do work, they just running senseless around, just for speed. Lets have a look at this WU. (Also shown below)

    http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=726074

    The first Computer is an old Apple (18894) with 507 mips (1 GHZ), therefore very low rated with claimed credits. The second (18937) is an Intel (2GHZ) with 1.552 mips, it is so fast that it needs nearly 300 seconds more and requires 2,5 times more credits. The third is an AMD 3.2 GHZ with nearly 2.000 mips and therefore need 300 seconds less than an old Apple, but claims double of credits.
    Isn\'t this funny? All those powercows running around, what are they doing? No work I suppose. It seems that they just phoning to Bill, to tell him latest news or whatever and between the do a little work.
    So what does it need to become a top 20 team in SZTAKI??? Just 10 old Apple & Macs running around the clock and the brainless powercows going to help us to raise just the credits, not the work. So let the Apple\'s do the work and lets have fun and the others do the \"Fundraising\".
    If you like that idea, just join the team of silent workers and we will get happy! Note - we know that the world isn\'t fair, but if you know it, it does not really hurt ... lets do the work ...

      The third \"AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3200+ \" doesn\'t run at 3.2 Ghz.
      The 3200+ is the Amd rating.
      The cpu operates at the frequency of 2.2GHz. ;)
