Can someone explain me why a short task is granded with credit around 13500 and a long one around 291000 while the short task takes about half the time to complete compare to the long one.

I am not bickering, just want to know why.

I have got 2 rigs, one does the short ones and the other long ones.

The FAQ on Credits is here from 2011:

http://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=2572#21666

So for the short tasks credit is awarded based on atom count and # of iterations in the simulation.

The long tasks are above x 2 + 50% more credits if the results are returned with 24 hours.

It's high time the Short WUs used the formula for Long WUs.
