I saw a post about that over there.  Have tried out the linux version but haven't got to look at the windows one.  May try that this weekend.  Curious if they are different.  Cheesy

Boinc treats the points differently than the standard UD type award. Read some boinc threads on the WCG forum. They are making an attempt to make them sorta' the same.

Something about Points that I found --

I'm also not liking the way the credits are handled. Apparently there is a 24 hour delay between when you submit your first WU before you see any record you've done anything... So far I've done two WUs, and nothing on their page indicates I've returned anything. At least with BOINC, you can check the status to see if the servers actually got them or not. I don't like hanging out in limbo...

At least the Boinc WGC jobs aren't as long as they are with regular WGC jobs... 2+ hours BOINC WGC compared to 11+ hours WGC....  Thumbs Up

*squeek*

actually, unless things have changed since i last ran wcg, their units vary....had a few go by in 2 hours, and others take much longer.  kinda like grid rosetta, except scaled down.  will be interesting to see if it's a continuing trend of 2 hour units Smiley

I am interested to see if people prefer BOINC (Windows) to the UD software for WCG.

Wotan, it's VERY customisable...  Well sort of, if you know how to program then all is well Smiley  Alter the program and compile it.  (It's open source)

It'll be interesting to see if they make the WCG-Rosetta (BOINC) code open source as your running a slightly older sut down version of what we are improving over at [email protected] and there no problems with that going open source (David Baker/David Kim just asked us), ok the only problem is cheating and the then means we may have to add redundency to weed these out.
