The PPD gap is only 600 now, and I'll keep gaining as it's only just begun to see the wonders of my main box.
The Xeon goes online tomorrow so that should be good for a couple hundred PPD
[it's an old netburst Xeon with hyperthreadling lol. But it has two processors so it should still be able to dish out some SMP goodness]
If it's really slow you'll have to watch the deadlines. Might make sense to run the graphical client if that's the case.
Yeah I seem to be having the same problem you were having. My WUs continue to fail to report. Wonder how the points get awarded? Maybe their server is accepting WUS, but not acknowledging them for points? I dunno..
I'm still in this thing
