I am not from SETI@Home but I can answer your question. If you were not using the correct URL, you would have never gotten work units to begin with. Apparently, you have successfully attached to the SETI@Home project via that URL.

There are many postings on this board complaining about various problems while attempting to get work units and return results. I have faith that the bugs will get ironed out over the next several weeks.

That is the correct URL. Since each result must be validate by 2 others, credit can be delayed. If one or more of the results is not back by the deadline (2 weeks S@H, 5 days Predictor, 6 months rumor for CPDN, 5 days rumor for F@H), the WU will be sent out again to other computers, and the cycle starts again. Each computer gets a deadline based upon the time that the WU was sent to that machine.
