Sorry for the inconvenience, but we will not be sending out new tasks for the next 12 hours. We're still optimising the system and will need to go off-line occasionally until Monday 30th July.

Hopefully you'll optimise OUT CreditRandom, sorry, CreditNew.

My stats today are laughable. Truly random. 4 identical machines, range of average credit varies by a factor of 5. My fastest machine has the lowest RAC of my small farm. A celeron laptop is getting great credit, a celeron desktop with twice the CPU speed is getting dismal credit. I keep very detailed stats on all projects across my farm, so I can easily spot projects with rogue credit granting schemes :)

Now, I'm not a Credit Wh*re, but CreditRandom is a real downer for dedicated crunchers. Get rid of it. Not asking for amazing credit, just a system that anyone can understand.

*waits for @frankhagen to join in* ;)

Cheers,

Al.

Just updated that now, we are now giving credit based on runtime. I'm going to send out some new tasks now just to make sure everything is running smoothly.
Cheers,
Kevin

My RAC has plummeted ever since this change. Apparently, it wasn't very Linux friendly.
