Ensured Video card had latest drivers (Geforce 8400 GS, driver version 178.24)

Estimated times for workunits looked much shorter... but kept crashing my video card....

Don't forget....

Just because you return a completed work unit... doesn't mean you instantly get credit for it......

Seti holds on to completed work units, untill other users have completed the same work unit, before working out what credit you should recieve.
(Try going into your stats, you can find a list of returned workunits that are awaiting confirmation!!)


And I have noticed, that the project doesn't always seem to automatically update, when uploading work units....

My machine stays on 24/7.. no problems here...
