Thanks but I had enough data that my computers never ran out. The credit has fallen another 100 credits today.

I\'m running a Mac Pro with 32 GB of RAM closing as many apps as I can when I\'m away from it. At the end of last month I was getting 4,500 credits a day. During the course of this month, I\'ve gone from 4,500 to 2,500 and I have no clue why. It runs 24/7 with 75% of the CPUs using up to 90% of CPU time. I\'ve restarted it several times during the month just to see if it would make a difference but it doesn\'t seem to help. Would anyone have any idea why this would happen? Is it a matter of specific work units that it is receiving as an example?
Thanks,

4) Questions and Answers : Web site : User Name Divided Into Two Accounts (Message 81115)

You must have used two different EMail addresses as you attached hosts to the project. You\'ll have to determine which host is not under the account of the team founder, and on that host detach from R@h, and reattach under the EMail address associated with the team founder. Then future credit and RAC will be under a single account. At that point, I\'d also suggest you remove your EMail address from the account you no longer wish to use, see this post


You were right, there are two different email addresses. It seems that if I could change the email address of the oddball one to the one that the majority of computers are using, that they would be merged. However the message that the email address is in use and won\'t let me change that. I read the message you linked to and I don\'t know how, if I deleted the account, that the computer in question would end up on my other account (same name but different email address. I guess I\'m being kind of thick here but I just don\'t want to lose all of the data contributed so far by that computer.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Louis

My account name is Mild Mannered Professor and I am the founder of the team, Colorado Mountain College. When I look at the team info it shows two members, both named Mild Mannered Professor. I like tracking my computers\' progress for Average Daily Credit, but I can\'t get the total because of the account being split between the two Mild Mannered Professor accounts.
Would someone mind merging those together into one account. Right now my Average Daily Credit for the two accounts is 5256 and 2099 and it would be appreciated if they could be joined. I have no idea how this happened as each account name is spelled correctly.
Thanks,

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Problems and Technical Issues with Rosetta@home (Message 77115)

Some people here are incredibly immature and demanding - I\'m talking to those who are stomping their feet and threatening to leave the project just 12 hours into what I\'ll call the work download/upload outage. Grow up people.

Sure it sucks when stuff breaks or stops working, but that\'s the nature of any complex system. BOINC and most boinc projects (R@H included) are very complex systems.

My computer cycles will continue to crunch for Rosetta, good luck on getting things fixed :).


My mom passed away after suffering from Alzheimer\'s for years. No one should have to suffer from that damned disease! I\'ll stay with Rosetta since they do research which could prevent that in the future.
