I guess this does mean that CreditNew is in action and does this on it's own, right?
Because I just get these low scores:

28 Nov 2014, 10:27:29 UTC 28 Nov 2014, 12:59:08 UTC Fertig und Bestätigt 2,180.58 2,034.38 5.56

Would be nice if you can figure out some fixed credits like on PrimeGrid sooner or later... ;-)
Right now it's only a hint because I don't care much about the credits anyway.

Yes, later on, normally you will get at the beginning higher credits and then its normalize to your FLOPs, could also be the benchmark causing low values.

With a higher n value the WUs will be longer and longer, fixed credits are not good in this constellation.

Hm, I don't know how exactly PrimeGrid did solve that, but as far as I observed the fixed credits there for some subprojects do adjust (themselves?) to the length of the WUs - maybe this n value plays a role in the credit adjustment then.

Well, I do care about credits. It looks like this will be another project that I will not be too interested, although I will be crunching some. To me CreditNew is ridiculously low. I am paying $700+ a month for electricity just for BOINC purposes. I am not a monkey and expect to be paid peanuts. Since there are other worthwhile projects to crunch with set credits that are better than Credit New, I will not follow any project that uses Credit New. That is my personal choice and I do not wish to argue about it. It is about time that BOINC Administration wakes up and realize that we want a decent credit for what we are doing as Volunteers after all it means nothing to them and it costs us a lot of money.

I went to fixed credits now. See the news. The advantage of AVX was not implemented in credit new.
