Blade, you've discovered the VMware & HFM.NET bug
that I saw recently too.
This wont actually be giving you 5,471. See your downloaded time - -3h, etc.. For some reason, your VMware thinks you're going to download that work unit in about 3h 31 minutes.. Meaning, you'll be sending it back, according to FAHMON, almost instantaneously after downloading. At that rate, you'll probably get ~3200 points for it (TPF: 3:48, project: 6014, run through the calc here: http://www.linuxforge.net/bonuscalc2.php
) = ~3344 points for this work unit.
This is something I saw last week too. -SMP 8 folding SMP2s on VM ware said that mine would be worth over 6k, but I got the regular points when it finished.
If you're not -bigadv folding on the VM ware, you're better of using the 6.29 SMP2 client for Windows -- otherwise, you're utilizing more
resources for the same work.
Hope that helps!Edited by MistaBernie - 3/20/10 at 6:53am
