    What's up with those stats? If you look at the extremeoverclocking page, it's completely screwed up.

    Doesn't seem to be overly impressive though :eek:

    Arg and he is gonna overtake me... then again my Machine is bugging me.

    I check at my progress 67% I say to myself 'arg, going slow okay...'

    Then I check back a good 10 hours later '67%'

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Somehow... folding stopped itself.

    :mad:

    Woo Hoo!

    I just grabbed top spot for MacRumors as far as work units go! Not bad for a couple of weeks work!

    Riiiiight. Over 16,000 WUs in two weeks...:rolleyes: :p

    So why aren't you getting points for all these?

    I couldn't tell you how or why. I simply signed up for this on a whim & appear to be doing ok. No big deal, and I really have no idea how the points thing works anyway. Care to enlighten me?

    Well, mc68k has been folding for well over a year on more than 40 machines and you have more WUs than him now. Sound a little funny?

    On top of that, his average points per WU is just over 16, while yours is almost .09. Seems to be some sort of glitch in the reporting, or your machine is bailing out on WUs, but you're getting partial credit for some of them...

    My 'Team'

    1 G5 DP2 Ghz 1.5 GB Ram (first week)

    + from then on
    1 G4DP 1GHZ
    1 G4DP 533MHz
    1 G4DP 500MHz

    I can't imagin why any of them would bailout on work units.

    So if Iadded slower Macs would my Points score come down even more?

    Thanks!

    :confused:

    OK

    I read through that link and turned off the assembly optimization like other have suggested, and hopefully they'll update the app soon.

    Thank for the help!

    You know

    I could add a bunch of iMacs (old school style). Do you think they would help the team much? It would be about 10 333-500MHz models.

    Anything you can contribute helps. Even older machines like those can turn in a decent amount of work.
