Default How to create TWO fat CPU credits?

The title says it all.

Reading the page http://v5www.mersenne.org/v4_migration/ there is one step that I just can't understand. What does "create TWO fat CPU credits" mean? Should I create two more accounts? Should they be named "fat CPU LL" and "fat CPU TF"? Should I throw my 68000 GHz-days out of the window?

Please help me, or I won't sleep well tonight...

Presumably, this means that the CPU labeled "v4_computers" will appear to have two very large "completed assignments", one for LL and one for TF, and they will collectively contain all of your v4 credit.

Nope

There is only one virtual CPU, labeled "v4_computers" as LL tests, containing all credits from LL and TF, and no virtual CPUs for TF, although I have collected 4948 GHz-days of TF.

Hmm...that's odd. I'm no PrimeNet guru, but I'd guess that something got messed up there.

That's what I'm afraid of...

from: http://mersenne.org/freesoft.htm#upgradeusers

Quote:
Each v4 account linked should:
· appear in the list of linked accts on the v4 migration page.
· associate one v4_computers virtual CPU on your v5 account for each v4 account linked;
Note that the v4_computers virtual CPU is initially assigned to ANONYMOUS until you link your v4 account.
· create TWO fat CPU credits, one each for LL and TF, which contain the ENTIRE v4 credit accumulated to 10/20/2008.
· these two fat credits -should- appear in the v5 stats, including the v5 account summary page (pending a bug fix).


I think "(pending a bug fix)" is the operational phrase here. I don't have my two fatties yet either.

It seems to be working for me. Under "Stats for the last 365 days", I see (sorry for the incorrect formatting):

Code:
 Type  	 Rank  	 of  	 GHz days  	 Count
TF	87	305	29.5416	256
LL	18	193	4647.4414	319
Overall	23	395	4676.9830	575
To be sure though, 256 TF seems quite a lot higher than I would guess.

If your v4 account had no credit to begin with, and you transferred it to v5, how fat would your "TWO fat CPU credits" be?

I transferred my whole v4 team under my v5 account...

We didn't mean you in particular, just someone in general.

We're trying to figure out how to generate "TWO fat CPU credits" without actually doing any work.

If v5 gave us no credit that wouldn't seem very fat.

You are right

I tested this behavior also: I had a previous account as ET_ on Primenet V4 that was emptied on Team_Italia. Now I have another fat CPU credit of 0 GHz-days on it...
