Doesn't client-type=advanced give you those larger WUs? That's what the Stanford thing says.
I've tried client-type=beta, advanced, and even no client-type parameter and I keep getting these garbage A3 WUs that take 12 hours to complete and give 13k points. I'm getting really fed up. Are there just no A4 WUs available?
I know I'd be near the top in my category if I could get some of those 2 hour, 2k point WUs.
Can someone help and not troll me?
'advanced' can give you larger WUs, or smaller ones, the smaller ones typically have the greater PPD numbers. I'm on 'advanced' right now, and have an A3 6099 that will take forever, and give me ~15k. I'm not sure which WUs are in 'beta' right now other than the 8075, which can give good PPD, or not so good.
Sometimes changing your IP address can help you get on a different assignment server with better, or sometimes worse WUs. I just made that gamble this morning, changed my IP, and got off the string of terrible 764X WUs I was on, nearly anything is better than getting those back-to-back-to-back.
