You don't normally run that CPU with the -smp flag?
He did not know of the -smp switch, so his client had been processing single core WUs.

Yeah, all 4 cores running at 100%. With this flag does Stanford send different WU's? I'd normally turned one in by now.
Ya the smp work units are different than the single core wu. They take longer, and more processing power, but are worth a lot more.
For reference, I have the same CPU as the OP, and based on my observation of a few WUs (just switched to WinSMP) it takes anywhere between 16-26 hours depending on the exact project. However, with bonuses each WU is worth thousands of points. So you are still looking at 2-3K ppd in effect.
Welcome to the tasty world of SMP WUs!
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.
