I've never managed to get one even though server status shows some being available.

Is it only android and raspberry Pi ones available? Apps say it's available for windows and linux cpu too.

The server limits them to anything that reports < 5mips or something like that. If you have a really old/slow PC that you want micro WUs to crunch, post the host id and I'll reconfigure the server so that it will be able to get micro WUs.

Hindsight be 20/20, I should have made the micro WUs default to unchecked so that unless someone specifically chooses to enable it, they wouldn't get work. What was happening prior to me having the server limit it via mips was that normal PCs were grabbing thousands of the micro WUs and the android devices weren't getting any because the server couldn't keep up with making them.

This is a hexcore xeon, would hope it's fast enough :) - http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/show_host_detail.php?hostid=394734

EDIT - re-read, I understand what you mean now, not to worry, don't have any slower machines up and running any more.
