With regard to the length of time it takes to do an AP:
As a general rule when run on the CPU instead of the GPU it takes about 7 times longer. They both will give the same amount of credit it seems.

The only way that I know of around that is to not run APs on the CPU.

(I think the the CPU credit is just about the same as non-ap work despite the time difference of AP to non-AP work. Whithout doing massive amounts of data averaging that is my take on it.)

Post:
Each project awards points at whatever rate it wants to. They do not agree, even if they should. We generally call it creitscrew as expecially with SETI it seems the more you do the lower the credit awarded.

Sort of like a slaesperson where if they really do well their quotas are raised before their commisions kick in.

I just have never seen it before, and I have looked a lot.
I think that explanation certainly makes sense.

They were all Disabled. They were that was for at least 30 minutes until I moved on to something else. Well they are back now and running just fine it would seem.

65 for the 11th. Bringing that other cruncher on line sure helped.

I have managed to get 7 today.
@Winggo and Bill
is there some secrets to getting so many tasks or is it just luck of the draw. I only have one machine

Back when we used to get AstroPluse tasks all the time I would play with settings. Now I just let them load if they are there, no babysitting the computers anymore. What helps is of course having a computer which is sending back completed tasks and then asking for new ones. There is a much better chance to pick one, or more, up that way.
(BTW 63 so far today)
