Hello, since yesterday I have the machine running but I have 0 credits. Why is that? Thanks for your help.

Neither of you machines has completed a task yet.
Once you finish a task it get sent back to S@H for validation. This process compares your result for that task with the other of the pair of tasks sent out. If they agree then you get credits (based on some mystical formula that is too complex to go into here), if they don't agree then the job is passed onto a third person to acts as mediator - credit is granted to the two that agree.
This process can take time, be patient (I've got tasks that have been waiting to be validated since July)

Your English is at least as good as my Spanish and quite understandable. No need for an apology.
