Has it finished a "module" yet? You don't get points until it completes each one & sends it back. If you have an older computer like I do, it could take a week or two for each one to finish.

Also, the statistics are only updated once a day, so if your computer recently finished one up & sent it back it may not be included in the totals that I listed.

Yeah, computer. Just bought a new one weeks before this started. More power than I know what to do with when I'm not playing games. This is as good a use as any.

Better watch out cubedbee, I just threw a new processor and motherboard in mine. Once the new RAM gets in, I might be able to fall behind you at a slower pace.

Doesn't this wear down your processor and improve the chances it could break down?

No. If you keep that processor for a dozen years, then you can start worrying about "wear and tear".

How long is this running? Once I get my internet hooked up at home and I'll get my computers rocking.

I have an older dell laptop that might not help much at all (about 4 years old)
and I have a pretty solid desktop I built not that long ago.
