Comments on the following newsitem
We've made a change to our validator which basically puts a speed limit to the amount of credit any given host can be awarded (per cpu). While this shouldn't effect
the vast majority of our users (as the speed limit is quite high), it should protect the project from users who would like to cheat the project to get excessive credit.

FYI, the admin modified the wording for this news item:

August 19, 2008 Validator and Awarded Credit Change
We've made a change to our validator which basically puts a speed limit to the amount of credit any given host can be awarded (per cpu). While this shouldn't effect the vast majority of our users (as the speed limit is quite high), it will help prevent the project from giving out more credit than intended.
