Thanks for appreciating my efforts seti, but this may be a glitch, or just a REALLY huge tip.

it's not a glitch its a feature. Congrats on the payday. I once had an AP that finished in 90 minutes give me 10,000 credits. However, I do think this is unlikely to be a common occurance

Take the credit while you can and enjoy it.

LOL, yup!
Then, Seti might even give out credits on a par with some bogus rates available on other projects......
Some are proud of their wild credit achievements elsewhere. I don't care, nor do I give them much credence.

I know what my stats are HERE. On Seti.
I know what I could post for creds if I chose to let the kitties point 9 good crunching rigs at another un-named project. I could double or triple my RAC.

If creds were all I were after, I would do that.

I happen to be VERY proud of my accomplishments here.

This is my home. This is where my heart is. Whatever the rate of credits granted, I am treated the same as all others here.

That's a good enough benchmark for me.

Meow!

I picked Einstein as my second project (for mac GPU use) as they were trying to bench mark their credits to SETI. Credit inflation is disingenious.
