If a person let run BOINC V3.x or V4.x with SETI@home V6.03 he get 0 Credits for well crunched WUs.

And it's not funny to have this person as 'wingman'..

Since BOINC V5.10.45 the PROXYs are working well..
So there is no excuse for to use BOINC V4.x .

So please..
Now it's time to send new work only to >= BOINC V5.x .


Number crunching : 'Claimed credit zero'

... and cut off all that science being done, which is still valid regardless of the credit granted? We all have the same probability of having a quorum partner of someone using BOINC v4.x or earlier, so we're all in the same boat on this.

There's no reason to cut off earlier versions other than people worried about their credits.
