Yeah that's a bummer though. Bonus points even for 484 WUs are like 3200+ points.
I'm guessing this is a good thing:
0:48:12:Unit 02: 99.90%
00:48:13:Unit 02: Upload complete
00:48:13:Server responded WORK_ACK (400)
00:48:13:Final credit estimate, 1048.00 points
00:48:13:Cleaning up Unit 02
I think the original base and estimated credit was only in the 400 range.. idk.

Yeah final credit estimate on a GPU WU was 1298, and that was base too.

Maybe I did get bonus points. O_o
If you fold for EVGA you earn evga bucks which can be spent on EVGAs products.
I did this for City Year's Alumni team but stopped because it does take a cut of your processor's strength AND your connection speed.
I can't help but wonder if there is an ulterior motive with "demanding" people keep their computers running 24/7. In the long run it's the participant who's stuck with the bill and possible hardware damage as a result of participating.
...Nope, can't say I'd ever do it again.
lol hardware damage? How long ago did you fold? I already passed this by my dad about the electric bill (I'm 22) and he said that since it's for a good purpose it was fine, and it barely affects our electricity bill as it is, and yeah, I run my GPU and CPU at 100% load folding when I'm not gaming/rendering. It has not done anything to my processor or graphics card and my connection speed is through Comcast in Chicago, which is pretty damn awesome, so no, it's not a problem to me and some others too.
Imagine if they made it per WU/how many points you accrue, that could help make it so not just anyone could farm up an SR-2/3, for instance. *wink wink*
