Well it much have just updated since you now have two trickles and 320 credits. The trickles are listed almost immediately as they come in, however, the credits are calculated only once a day so there is a lag (sometimes quite long) between the trickle and credit. Your PC is running at about 7.2 sec/TS which is pretty slow so the trickles won\'t be frequent. If running the model 24x7, it should trickle every 22 hours or so, if the computer isn\'t running other projects doing other CPU intensive things.

Thank you Geohi,

to conclusions,and, being a little Paranoid.Had added a 4GB kernel and have
since returned to the 1gb kernel that is all I need.

Hello Again,
My trickles are not good at all.Been crunching 24-7 and have had 2 trickles after
65 hours now.I would like to fix this problem.Will an Optimised client help with trickles,or just with Credits?Climate has always been Rock-Solid on this Linux O.S. if I compare dto XP{nightmare} I wish I could delete that in my Computer
in my Profile.{Scary-stuff}Could not get that Windows Validator to make the system legit.After 3 weeks of no support a Hacker found his way in and gave me the
zobutt? I forget,but,Linux I donnot personalise attacks cause there are none!

Sincerely
Doug Sluger Worrall

I think that optimised versions of BOINC only work on the other, shorter, projects. The cpdn science app is as optimised as it can be.

I think you have a problem with your version of Linux. Measured floating point speed = 499 million ops/sec. This is very slow for a 2.40GHz computer.

Hello Les,
I was told to run this kernel linuxos 686 4Gb to speed up stuff.Its fast as it should be.With the 4Kb kernel my credits halved{ouch}.I was told this is a 686 p.c not a 586.Something must be wrong with the O.S. or,the kernel.When I have more info Les,will post again with the 3 choices of kernels.Still learning the
Linux world.Just learned how to put synergys sig in Forum,Dohh,was putting[img]
at end Dohh.
Also just beganBurp and its a pig for such little space.For the first time I saw swap actually work through KSYgaurd and Gkreml.All I do is run Boinc and Email.
All power goes to Boinc and experiments.Running 6 presently 24-7.But,will not run
pre/Beta while sleeping.
Sincerly
Doug Worrall
