Michael Becker suggested showing each person's personal best. That has been added in the "Computing and credit" section of the My Account page (home.php)just after the Total credit and RAC. It looks something like:

Highest Steps 2483 for 2370368952929622622207 on 2011-06-23 21:33:19



I am still evaluating whether the second part of his suggestion can be done efficiently. That entails not only getting the top X steps, but also how many times each occurs. For example:

high step counter : 1 x 2178 steps 20 x 2121 steps 31 x 2116 steps 99 x 2085 steps 1001 x 2072 steps


While getting that info is pretty east for crunchers with only a single machine using a CPU, it takes a long time to calculate for machines with fast and/or multiple GPUs.

If at all possible..Do not up-grade your BOINC sever code with this CreditNew system. What are your thoughts on that and DA attempt to control BOINC credit? And I do like the High Step thing.

I believe Slicker saw that at the last update and reverted to the Collatz Way then, so DA's way IS, or at least was, changeable if each project wanted to. Now the next update you have to do it AGAIN, but once you figure it out hopefully it is pretty easy.
