I second that!

8 hours without work.. it would be sooo kind to allow bunkers of 400-500 WUs per Host (*3 Minutes computation time per WU @ Ati 4870).

I´m shaking my head while reading zed´s comments. Do you cut down a redwood tree just to get one toothpick?

You don´t get the point, right? It doesn´t matter if Milksops account is deleted or whatever happens to it. Its just a proof of concept, that even unexperienced "programmers" can speed up the computation by the factor of 50-100 within hours.

The average user doesn´t know that his ressources are wasted in such a shameful manner by the project, ignoring optimizations that can be mathematically proven to deliver the exact same result as the original application.

even if the credits/day was specifically adjusted to 10 for the account of milksop, it won´t matter: the project still would get 100x correct results resulting in a huge leap for the completion of the project.
