    Here is a list of my resent uploads. The hosts are identical (supposed to be at least) and it’s an unknown Intel running at 2.66 GHz. I have 20 of those and there has been a factor 2½ between the most and least productive in terms of points over a period of one week but here I see 16 pph and 80 pph (5 times). OK, if you have plenty of CPUs then it will even out but for the more average 1-2 CPU producer daily points could be all over.

    If they kept that I'm sure a lot of crunchers from other projects like Rosetta would join WCG.

    I have a feeling that is the point

    Edit: got that feeling after reading the WGC Forum. SETI gets around twice as much per CPU hour. Some old WGC guys will not be happy if there are over-run by us youngsters.

    From the thread you linked it looked like the WCG techs were planning to adjust the points again though. Guess it's a bonus for any newcomers.
