I'm testing some new server side work generation. Let me know if any of the new workunits are having problems. I should also be generating work for the new application tonight, so if you have any problems with the milkyway3 application let me know as well.

I don't know if these are the workunits that I am having problems with but I am using the stock app with a stock Mac mini core duo (plus a few on a core 2 duo) and more than half of the units I return are marked invalid. Many of the units start with a quorum of one and then after they are returned the quorum jumps to two. I usually end up paired with a GPU and then it will validate against a third machine (also running a GPU) leaving mine as odd man out. Shouldn't the stock app on a stock CPU return (mostly) valid results?

I like this project and I realize that I am not helping very much compared with the GPU folks but I would really like to be able to return valid units. Any help or insight would be appreciated. I have tried to keep up with the postings on the forum boards here, so if I missed something vital somewhere please point me in the right direction. Thank you.

Travis, will there be an ATI version of the new milkyway3 application?

See here!
The CUDA and the ATI app are returning very similar results but the CPU app needs some work. Furthermore Travis said he would like to use a different likelihood calculation, which still needs to be implemented.
