You are right - I have just checked WCG FAQ:

========
Does World Community Grid offer a 64 bit version of the BOINC software?

No. The science applications are only available in 32 bit so everything we do, including validation, is offered in 32 bit. Going forward, we will re-evaluate the feasibility, cost and timing of offering a 64 bit version of the BOINC software to the member community.
========

So my 64bit Linux system calculates 32bit application for WCG.

However to me current spreadsheet organization could be misleading.
It classifies result based on WU build, not system where it was crunched.
Maybe it would be better to somehow distinguish those two things?

Are there any projects which send the same WU for 32bit and 64bit systems, but they complete faster on one of them? What happens then? You place result into brackets (X-Y)?

In that case results from one of my PC has been lost or assigned to wrong OS.

Computer ID 7417: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200, running Dotsch_UX (64bit Ubuntu) has calculated few WU for World Community Grid. However at result spreadsheet for project WCG there is no duration time for E5200 running Linux 64 bits.

Can you check what happen?

A very good question, which I could not find answer for...

Recently I have added few PC to this project and I could find them under my account, but no sign of collected WU data from them. Can somebody explain what is the general rule for updating database with collected information?
