I see that we must be crunching a new type of WU. I say this because I see that must of the WUs are being granted 4 credits each, up from 2. They do not seem to run twice as long as the last batch ;)

Actually, it looks like the gs_24 WUs do take about twice as long as the gs_22 WUs. What threw me off is the fact that my quad crunches about twice as fast as the Core2 I have running.

Yep :) gs_24 is using a different sized volume than gs_22 (and the new ps_1). As part of the assimilator updates in the last few days i made the volume size an input to the search being done (as opposed to being statically in the assimilator). This'll give us a lot more flexibility in our searches. Also, we're thinking about testing doing searches that adaptively modify the volume as the search progresses -- ie, the fitness calculation will be initially less accurate, but faster, but while the search starts to converge it'll progressively get more accurate.

I’ve noticed that the short WUs are taking less time on my G5 Mac than they did before: today’s times are coming in around 175 s, down from ~205 s. But the longer ones do take very nearly double what the short ones used to, averaging about 415 s.

i think most of the parameter sets generated by ps_1 and ps_2 got messed up. I've stopped those searches and started up ps_3, ps_4 and ps_5. These still should be taking half the time as gs_25, but as much time as the work units used to be taking.
