    How long does it take everyone to process a 5 point unit? It took me about 3 days, and I was wondering if this is fast?? or slow??

    Thanks,

    It takes me also about 3 days, but I'm running the big ones on a medium PC.

    What are the specs on your PC??

    I'm on a 400 MHz G4 and it takes frickin' forever. Around 4-5 days. And so far every one of my units has been a really big one.

    Does anyone know how the client picks units to work on? Is it some sort of algorithm based on your name? Or based on when you downloaded the unit. Not that I mind that much, but it would be nice to get smaller units. I feel the feedback would be better.

    I'm guessing that part of it is based on how your computer performs for the benchmark test.

    Read the FAQ:
    The 5 point ones take a few days at least no matter what system you're on. My mac usually gets proteinA for 5 pointers, and that can take ~3-4 days.
