I've been running GPUGRID on BOINC 7.0.28 since late December 2012, on long runs and short, nearly nonstop.

After the 7th of January I've no longer been credited in the results page.
http://www.gpugrid.net/results.php?userid=93576

I get new work units (mostly long runs), and they run with no error messages.
They do not linger in the upload queue and I am assigned new tasks to compute right away.

My current tasks are properly listed on the results page.
However, once they are completed there is no record of them ever existing on the results page.
They're not listed under pending credit, invalid or error.

Is anyone familiar with this issue?
I'm new to BOINC and I hope my contribution isn't disappearing into the æther.

Many Thanks and Happy Processing

According to your hosts result page, your results doesn't disappear.
See host 140554 and 140542

There's like six days of work units missing.
I watched one of them last night reach 100% and its records disappeared.

More info: My BOINC manager shows me as having 1,882,375 GPUGRID credits but the result page chart shows 14 valid jobs totaling 811,750.

Result data gets cleared out of the system. Don't expect anything from 2 or more weeks ago to still be there, and sometimes the researchers do an impromptu clear out to free up space.
