    I have pending credits from 24 September still not validated. What is going on!? Do I have a chance to have those about 200 credits?

      All you can do is wait for quorum to be reached for the WUs to be validated. Some of your ‘partners’ had errors or missed deadlines, so replacement copies of those results have been made. Unfortunately some of them haven’t been sent out yet, but once others have had a chance to crunch them you should eventually get credit—it just may take a few weeks.

        I\'m not sure whether I like this much. I turn over my PCs to a project and I get some credits against my avatar and add to my signature. That is what I like to see. If you are telling my I have spent part of my electricity bill on finishing WUs here, but I might not get see the credits for some weeks, months or never, then I don\'t like it much. I hope you don\'t mind people being open and saying what they like, or don\'t like.

        You should rethink your policy on this.

          Thanks. More about 1000 pending credits to come in a few days. I hope I\'ll get them. But waiting so long for validation is really annoying.

            I connected and got 100 work units. I thought my preferences were set to 1 day cache on my other projects but to my horror, I saw that it was set to 10 days here. As long as most of these are taking, I should have got only 10 work units. I\'ll crunch until the deadline comes Nov 6 and reset then. I apologize to all who will have to wait for those I time out to be reissued.

              You\'re running a Linux machine so not impossible that you will succeed to crunch many wus before the deadline and this way, help to get a quorum for all these wus.

                After reading around here, I suspended all the 1a9d ones and got all the others done, now I have 10 days left to finish them. I even managed to finish two 1a9d\'s.

                  I have 10 days left to finish them.

                  You can report WUs at least 2 or 3 weeks after the deadline. As soon as you miss the deadline, the system creates replacement WUs. At this moment there is a queue of about 3 weeks to send them out. If you report your work before that day, it will be accepted by Sztaki. The replacement WUs will be marked \"Didn\'t need\" and deleted later from the server.

                  I am now crunching without problem WUs with deadline 14 October, this one for instance. Computer 44782 was the only one to report before the deadline 14 October. On that day 2 replacement WUs were created and waited in the queue. 3 days after the deadline computer 32607 reported and 13 days after the deadline I did. The quorum was then reached, we got our credits and the 2 replacement units were deleted.

                  I see that in the few days that you have been with us, your crunching speed has been remarkable. My guess is that you can finish all your WUs before the replacement WUs will be sent out.

                    Is the difference between Linux and Windows really that big? I have more or less the same AMD processor, but when I compare Pam\'s crunching records with mine, I wonder if I didn\'t buy the wrong system...

                      Yes, the difference is big. :(
                      I\'m running an Athlon64 X2 4600+ (Win2k) and i would say that with the 2.00 \'it\'s slow\'... when i look some Linux machines. :(
                      I watched some Linux machines which had problems. The project would be using GCC_3.3.
                      I quote Wikipedia :
                      Since GCC 3, GCC can automatically generate SSE/SSE2 scalar code when the target supports those instructions.

                      Ehm

                      If the application can be accelerated under Windows using some instructions (or/and best code ??), i see that Einstein@home is using \'Altivec code\' for their Mac OS X/PPC and GCC for their Mac OS X/Intel.

                        The queue gets smaller. I just downloaded WUs created 12 days ago. Please watch out before starting an old WU, someone else might already be working on it.
