I just signed up again a few days ago and was able to see my old stats of what i did in the past. They now call them Classic Work Units and it give me the number of files that i did along with the computing hours spent doing those units. But that has all changed probably a long time ago and now it looks like Its (Total Credit) and (Recent Avg Credit)
Im guessing here.....The total credits i guess is the number of files that my puter has done.....Does the recent Ave Credit mean the average time it take my computer to do a file ? If that is so.....Is there a total time anywhere spent in this new way of Seti keeping track of things ?
Thanks

Welcome back. And things have changed in the years since you left!

The "credits" are not the same as the old "number of tasks". Each completed and validated task gets a number of credits, which may range from a very small number to several hundred. The exact number is determined by a lot of things, including the type of task, you computer, your wingman's computer and your respective runtimes.
RAC (Recent Average Credit) is a rolling average of your credit, the timebase for which is several days.
