Recently I've noticed that not only does it seem that I'm not recieving credit for my work
(or at least its still pending - and if anyone can explain why the boinc system does this I'd be glad)
But I think my 'total credit' has gone down? Also with my 'average credit' has more than halfed?
Made no changes to the computer and nothing new to suck on the CPU.
Is this just another glitch or is something going wrong?

This so called New and BETTER credit system seems a bit blurry at the best of times but this is just another problem that is seriouly makes me think about quiting for a few months, come back later and see if theres a version that finaly works.

The WUWUs have to be crunched by 3 different units, then they are verified and if the verification is correct they are put in the que for credit. If per chance 1 has an error or does not match it will be resent for crunching. This is the short explanation....;O)
