    Whoa! the 2684 bigadv work unit points have been revised up!!!

    Folding1(Bloomfield) just dumped a 2684 and I was very surprised to notice that Stanford revised the points upward for it. My Bloomfield@3.46 ghz just manages to sneak in a couple hours before the 4 day deadline, and usually yields around 70k points for nearly 4 days worth of work. I was very...

    Bad bigadv 6900(32,24,41)

    It looks like there is another bad work unit floating around. My system ran this a couple of times and EUE's right at 0% every time. If a work unit fails, why in the HELL does the work server send the same damn WU out?
