I'd really like to know what the units of measure are for Recent Average Credit listed on the Account page. Is it measured in credits per day or credits per work unit?

My apologies for sounding like a high school science teacher.

Cheers,
Maurice

RAC is Recent Average Credit. it is a measure of work done by your computer over a time period(a month IIRC) a WU's credit is measured by its FLoP count.

RAC is the average daily credit based on the past results where most recent credits count more then older credits.

Credits from 2 weeks ago count half as much toward RAC as credits posted now. Four weeks ago count 1/4 as much toward RAC as credits posted now...
