Don't see mine back yet but I'm sure they will be in time. I have faith! :-)

Edit: Never mind. I'm blind. They're back. Thanks to all.

Hang in with us. It is the science that matters, not credit, eh?


I agree with that as posted previously, but credit updates also gives us the feedback of a living/running project.


Exactly. The credits also give us a feeling of accomplishment and a way to measure how we've helped. In short, the credits make it fun.

I wouldn't be doing this if it was just for credits in some random credit game. It really is about the science. There's a LOT of science that can be done via BOINC though. This isn't the only "game" in town.

[Edit]

PS: I came looking at the forum like a lot of people probably did to find out what happened to my half million credits. (I was lucky, still had about 300k left.) I should have read through the tread though before posting. What I said was true but I need to add that I understand that s**t happens and I appreciate the effort by the volunteers and paid staff (are there any?) to get things corrected.

The old rhyme goes: \"30 days hath September, April, June, and November. etc\".
There is a new one for cpdn: \"30 days hath all months to make it easier to compare dates\".



Ah. Never noticed it before.

Thanks.

The work unit one of my machines is currently running is showing the following model date on the screen saver:

30/02/1814 09:30

Am I reading that date correctly, February 30th?

It\'s running sulphur_cycle 4.22
