I have just started running Seti@home again after a year or more of computer problems, fixed by a new machine. I am puzzled by why the recent average credits value is different on my account page and the computer page. This is not a problem just a puzzle.

It is just a question of timing.
On the website, the RAC is updated regularly. If your client had the last connection with the server before the server did an update of your RAC, the numbers will be different. After that you have done a manual "Update", you will see that the numbers are corresponding.

Greetings from Belgium.

I didn't make myself clear both sets of figures are on the website, the value shown for RAC if I view either my account or the team I am in is/was 67.15 while if I click on view computers the value is 107.92. Both locations show the same total credits 854.37. Pending credit is turned off.
