Are the BOINC credits ever being updated? Mine have not changed since September 19th even tho I am crunching at least one-a-day. I'm stuck on 2337.22. I have reloaded the program many times and the newest version has been installed, all without an increase.

Reloading, reseting, and reinstalling are more likely to delay credit than just letting the client run. Upgrading to the latest version is normally a good idea though. It can be installed on top of the old version without loosing any work.

It takes some time for credit to be granted. I would guess an average of just under 2 weeks when things are running smoothly. Once you build up a pool of work waiting to be validated then you will start getting credit on a more regular basis (assuming the validator and transistioner are running).
