How are the score tabulated? I have fewer wu's but a higher score than some people.

the wu's are benchmarked on a celeron w/ o sse optimizations, and there is a formula that this duration is plugged into for duration, and points value. there is an explanation in the team pages, as well as Stanford FAQ:
http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegrou ... g/faq.html

How do you decide how much credit a work unit is worth?

How do you determine how many points a work unit is worth? Before putting out any new work unit, we benchmark it on a dedicated 500MHz Celeron machine (this machine does not have SSE/3DNow). We plug the results of this into the following formula:

points = 3.5 * multiplier * (daysPerWU)

where daysPerWU is -- no surprise -- the number of days it took to complete the unit.



How do you set the deadlines for the work units?

Each work unit is benchmarked on a dedicated 500 MHz Celeron machine without SSE/3DNow. We look at how many days it takes, and multiply this by 2.5. This corresponds to requiring such a machine to fold less than 10 hours a day in order to meet the deadline. From our experience, the majority of donor machines are faster than our benchmarking machine, and virtually none are slower, so this shouldn't be a problem
