Hello. I have some questions.

- Can someone tell me how the "main task" and "proof task" are distributed? I'm still learning.

- Can I choose what kind of homework to do? or does the system choose for itself?

- In case of being able to "choose". How can I do it?

Thank you very much for the help and I regret my English, I am doing it through an automatic translator.

It's all automatic, and no you can't choose.

After you complete a main task and return the result, the server does some magic and creates a proof task. The proof task (about 1% the size of the main task) is put in the queue and sent out to a computer, and when it's returned, assuming both computers produced the correct result, both the main task and the proof task are granted credit.

It's similar to normal double checking where the same tasks are sent to two different computers, except:

1) The second task isn't sent until the first task is returned.
2) The second task is much smaller, and gets proportionally less credit.
3) It's alright if the same computer does both tasks.
