What's going on? While we "normal" users still have the problem of not getting work, the Germans seem to have found a way to bypass this bootleneck. Check the column Credit/last week and you will find almost exclusively german users who received considerable amounts of work: User stats. And before someone adds this comment: No, not all of them have dozens of computers attached. Appr. half of these users have only 3-9 computers attached but still receive significant work while everybody else is starving ;-)

Maybe the Wus were mostly delivered when German ships were sailing? *grin*

Btw: I am not getting any Wus since some days, too. Always get "there was work for other platforms". ;-)
