Thanks guys. For years I've been using BOINCstats/BAM! to manage my computers and projects and I never bumped into these project-specific preferences. This week, I was able to create better configurations and set my work units right. Things are starting to look a little better now.

Thanks again.

Hi guys, I have a question regarding the amount of credit awarded by some WUs of the project.

Most times, when my computers are number crunching for various projects, I get a reasonable amount of credit a day, say 15k. On rare occasions, however, Collatz Conjecture awards me a huge amount of credit, much more than what I`m used to getting. Yesterday, for example, one of my GPU-equipped PCs was awarded 240k credits and sometimes this number goes up to 300k.

I was wondering if someone could explain to me why this happens. I understand it has something to do with the number of steps it takes to complete the proof of certain numbers, what I don`t understand is how or when are these WUs assigned to my computers. Are they part of a different application inside the project? Can't I assign these WUs to my GPU-equipped computers and the simpler WUs to my lesser minions?

Thanks in advance.
