Well I have had BOINC running for just over a week now, I am getting work units regularly enough to keep me processing 24/7.

I ahve probably sent in over 100 units between my two computers, but the "pending credits" is still offline, and I am not getting any "credits" showing up. I know that each wu has to be processed by 3 different computers and have the same results returned, but how long should that take?

They validator is currently backlogged, but even if it was caught up, WUs can take 2 weeks or more to be granted.

I had crunched 10 Days before the first Credits was counted. I think the first Credits for you be counted in the Next 2 or 3 Days.

Good Luck

Part of the problem in getting credits for work done is that ALOT of people can't get thru! Give it some time and you will start to see some progress, as the system gets better, the credits will come thru faster.
