Points awards - The points discrepancy I had noticed, but doesn't really bother me, is the estimate in the logs doesn't always match what the server awards. It's usually very close, within 20 point up or down. At the end of the day the clients are logging an estimate and the FAH servers are the final arbiters of the points awarded.

The recent CPUs page - I periodically take a look at this and it does something which confuses me. In the early days (about a year ago) it would give me a list of roughly 15-20 work units I had returned. Over the last 6-8 months this number has dwindled to about half-a-dozen. I know it's not for a lack of completed/returned work units. About the only thing that I can think of is that in the early days I was doing a lot of experimenting trying to get a balanced setup so had more clients and folding slots running than I do now. Am I on the right track with this or is there something else which determines the size of the report of "Recent CPUs"? I'm just curious on this one.

Iirc each reinstall or new slot if old deleted will create new ids for the slot(s) and those will all appear in the recent list until they age off .. so reckon you are on the right track

The Recent CPUs page still states it looks back 90 days, but I think they shortened that period.

Another thing that will increase the number of WUs shown is reinstalling your client completely, or adding and deleting folding slots on the same client. Each new install of the client is assigned an unique ID by the servers the first time the client connects. When a slot is created and gets a WU, the returned info distinguishes one slot from another. The displayed CPUid combines that ID with your userID.

So if you have a machine that is returning both CPU and GPU projects, or has more than one GPU, part of the CPUid will match
