I read the thread, but I have a question, seeing as I am new to BOINC, and Rosetta and Einstein, what are these credits all about? I see I have a bunch already, but what do they actually mean? Is it just an abstract for work my computer has done, and that's it? Or are they credits I can use in the BOINC e-store to get some really cool t-shirts? No, seriously, what exactly are they used for, and why do they seem so important? I have checked everywhere, including FAQ's, but nothing really delved into these "credit" things exactly.
So, if anyone can help me out here, I would greatly appreciate it. I see a few of you have been around here for awhile, so that is why I am asking.
Thank you for your time, and any consideration given to this question.
