I need to do some disk and database cleanup, so I'm granting credit for Astropulse results that were granted too little (or no) credit.

In the words of Mr. Burns..."Excellent!"

Edit: Ahem...erm...is this an on-going process or have some WUs been left out on purpose?
e.g http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/workunit.php?wuid=4081519
http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/workunit.php?wuid=4091838
http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/workunit.php?wuid=4091819

Edit2: found some borderliners, if I may call them that
http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/workunit.php?wuid=4089578
http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/workunit.php?wuid=4089571
...and there's more where those came from. They probably should be getting something like 0.004 or less, but just throwing this out there, for your consideration, not that it would make a difference in the overall "race". After all, it's not like we're here for the credits, but to point out potential flaws, issues or concerns, right?

Your borderliners are 100 percent blanked, so the credit seems appropriate.
However, I have seen several tasks that required serious processing that were awarded less than 10 points. In all these cases the workunit was validated, but there was at least one task in the list that failed (just as in your 'Edit' list).

But hey, this is Beta, so I'm crunching for science and not for credit ..

Those results went through the fix, but it didn't calculate a significantly different credit than what was there already. I'll take a look at some and see what's up.

After I get the CUDA versions of SAHv7 out.

Thanks, Eric. I'm sure you'll get to the bottom of this...once you get around to it.

Cheers!

invalid results of hostid=60340 - *done, confirmation not possible*, because *package canceled* through S@h-B server.

It's possible to get Credits for this results?

Got also a bunch of them. My Error rate went from 4 to 17. All because of those.

Credit will be granted for the "can't validates" once they've all come back. Probably some time next week.
