See:
http://www.boincstats.com/stats/boin...c26759670d6903

I am running in my Seti at Home farm:
-A G5 2.5 DP with 2.5 GB ram
-A G4 400 with 2.0 GB ram
-An Athlon 2400 overclocked to 2.2 ghz with 256 megs of ram on Linux
-A 1.7 ghz Pentium M laptop with 1 GB ram with Windows XP

The G5 is running Alpha 5.2a.
The G4 is running Alpha 5 (G4 edition)
The Athlon is running one of the Naparst optimized clients
The Pentium M machine is running one of Crunch3rs' optimized clients based on Naparst's.

Explain how I somehow did five days of production in one day?
Either the stats are wrong or misread or something is very odd.

My previous best day was 2921 credits.
How did I go from 2921 to 11471?

Ideas?

Did you merge any boxes recently? There is a bug that if you merge boxes, it will see the total credit for the merged box as a first days production? It will pass.

Todd,

I just looked at my stats and have a similar jump in production. I did merge computers, though, so that seems like a reasonable explanation.

No, no merging of anything. There have been two individuals with multiple
computers joining my team but no changes on my own farm anyway.

Todd,
There was 3 days where no results were passed to the Boinc Stats computer. so when the numbers caught up, there was a large jump as you noted.
