    This WU had wildly varied run-times! Why?

    Thanks.

      I have one like that too: my Celeron took over 65 h but someone else\'s Pentium took less than 4 h. Now I know that Celerons are somewhat anaemic for their speed rating, as compared to higher-end Intel chips, but they\'re not normally fifteen times slower ...

        Here\'s a strange credit situation: three valid results, claiming 145.77, 116.33, and 9.26. Instead of going with the median, the validator granted the first what it claimed, but only granted the other two the lowest amount! How is it that the same result is worth 145.77 cobblestones to one system, and 9.26 to two others? Aren\'t the grants always supposed to be the same for a given WU?

          The WU I referred to, No.25463, now appears to have been deleted from the database.

            Augstine\'s WU had 3 identical error results, which made the validator happy.
