I admit I only run a project for the credit..I could give a rat's ass about the :"science"

The average and long wu's don't get a fraction of the credit that simply running another base at 10 minutes or so get....

Seems to me the project meeds to cut the long and average into manageable pieces or increase the payout by 5x.....

The credits per hour are 300cr for average and long, 240cr for all others. The runtime is estimated which is calculated on one core.

Not really, you can done the WUs in time but the CPU doesnt fit the test machine.

I am running AMD Phenom's which are not a very fast computer compared to the current crop of Intel's, but I still can get from 89 cr/h + on the long work units.
The difference might be that I have gotten used to their speed where as others would think they are way too slow.

They still get the job done however.
