      I can\'t speak for the credits granted but about the wus which have disappeared, see the news please
      2006. sept. 7.
      Server stopped till sept. 11. If you have WUs close to finish, return them by sunday. On monday the old WUs will be ereased from the database and new WUs will be generated.

      The \'old\' wus have been erased yesterday.

            I get nothing for 900 pending points.
            Why Sztaki give so long WU\'s and then don\'t want them back.
            I can\'t check news every day.
            Besides I think, I waste my CPU power for nothing. :[
            You don\'t respect volunteers !!!
            The best way is to don\'t participate in this project !!!

              I see \'Total credit 325.04\' but also in your \'Computers View\' 325.04 + 912.20 for an Athlon XP 2200+.

              The problem is explained here

                I remember when cpdn f**d up the model and they have to shut down ALL of them.
                - They said sorry.
                - We got new WU\'s from CPDN immediately.
                - We got the credit for our \'useless\' work, because they did not want us to feel it was a complete waste of time, power, etc...


                Now SZTAKI cancelled all my pending credits generated by crunching succesfully some extra long WU\'s. As I see there are some other cruncher with the same experience too.


                I think it was a realy kind move from the project.

                - I did my part of the job, just like the other guys.
                - I think if the project f**d up the model is not my fault.
                - If the project f**d up the WU\'s is also not my fault.
                - It was not my fault also that I was the only one who crunched some of their extra long WU\'s under more than 100 hours,

                ....BUT they punish me.

                Okay, I understand that the project have to validate the WU\'s, but if you cancel them there are no more cruncher will get those WU\'s, so there are nothing to validate.

                It is our problem? Nooooooo!!! It is your fault dear project admins.

                Now it seems SZTAKI is a complete waste of time and power.
                I do not think many people likes treating them this way.

                You want to loose crunchers? Than, You doing a great job boys.
                Now you truly lost one: ME.


                Good Bye,

                  An (partial) answer is here.
                  Since your computers are hidden, did you try yourself to check your credits/computer and their total ?

                    @ Picard
                    Adam ran a script on the db.
                    Your \'Total credit\' is now = 9,433.
                    Before, you had 6,888 credits.

                      Ok. I understood some part. But in many places I have still problems with language (I don\'t know Hungarian).

                        This project should be moved out of \"full production\" status and downgraded to beta or perhaps even alpha status. There are too many issues.

                          Did you think to abort your wus ?

                            Yes, and did so on several occasions, with the same results: getting too many work units that exhibited the same troublesome symptoms as the near-infinite complete time WUs.
