Challenge is issued for 1/1/18 - 1/8/18. I am aware it is over the holiday but wanted to get the ball rolling. https://boincstats.com/en/stats/challenge/team/chat/973

I ran Yafu for a long time at a low level. I had to quit because of the gigantic variation in WUs. Took a look at the top machines and here's an example:

7 Dec 2017, 19:21:20 UTC 17 Dec 2017, 9:00:22 UTC Completed and validated 656,104.03 253,238.90 1,029,616.69 YAFU-16t v134.05 (16t)
windows_x86_64
4 Dec 2017, 14:52:11 UTC 16 Dec 2017, 14:18:07 UTC Completed and validated 723,370.79 347,881.30 40,669.59 YAFU-16t v134.05 (16t)
windows_x86_64

These WUs were being run at the same time by the same machine, a very very fast machine BTW.
The longer WU ran for 723,370 seconds and received 40,669 credits.
The shorter WU ran for 656,104 seconds and received 1,029,616 credits.
Over 25x the credits for a shorter Wu.
Crazy, isn't it?

I absolutely love the Yoyo project and feel that Yafu is a fine test project but as a Vault project needs work.

The credits are based on BOINC's default scoring mechanism. It does so for the sake of testing the latest code. Unfortunately that will not change.

Less than a day to go and I've not heard any complaints during the challenge thus far.
