    Any new badges for anyone?

    Probably ~2 more days and I'll have a sapphire in C4CW....then on to HPF2 I think.

    They really need more work for CEP2, I'm lucky to have even 1 of those WUs on each machine at a time (w/ a 3 day work buffer)

    It would be hard to miss them for me, I check my WCG page twice a day and carefully track progress made on all badges/projects.

    I think I'm a bit obsessed with it, but that's OK :D

    Fine by me, nothing wrong with being obsessed by WCG. :D

    Absolutely...a waste of time to check so much, but worth it IMO nonetheless :)

    I'm going to see if I can set all of the computer @ school to report immediately either tomorrow or Tuesday, that should speed things up :toast:

    As someone who has suffered from debilitating OCD in the past, I would say the main thing is to realize when you are in control and when you are not. Things like this can be a real nightmare for people with OCD. When I was at XS, there were so many times I'd see people spending ridiculous amounts of money on hardware and maxing out the electrical circuits in their house and I wanted to say something but you really can't. Maybe they really enjoy it and can afford it, so STFU. People here seem much more laid back and realistic so I feel a lot more comfortable here.

    Exactly, very well said :respect:

    I spend what I can to do what I can, but I'm most certainly not going to spend all of my money on systems for WCG, there are other important things in my life

    It is a little more laid back here but what I like is the friendly environment here. I still have my membership at XS but I just refuse to use it because of my own personal reasons. I still like the people there. They are a great pack of people as well and the Water Cooling community there is second to none on the net. XS has it's place just like this site has it's place as well. I like it here and I came back here when I left XS because I remembered when XS was down and this site provided a place for us to go and even set up a XS refugee camp.

    I still like to spend a lot of money when I have it and yeah threw a few breakers in my time but that was part of the fun. We did/do that because it is fun. I love to create and make new builds. My next one is going to be a doozie and will be revealed only when it's done. Let's just say it is going to put a whole new meaning to the stoners club!

    What I wanted to do coming back here is to get back to helping people. At XS we spend so much time with manufacturer politics and sometimes we forgot to help the new guy coming in because we did not want to repeat for the thousandth time that yes clamps work good or not to use a mixed cocktail and to use distilled water with a bioside instead. Many of us were/is also the crunchers of the site and setup rigs on a regular basis. Water cooled rigs are happy crunching rigs! :toast: But what I missed is the helping just like I am here to give back what was given to me. I want to forget the manufacturer politics, I want to forget the BS ego's that forget others and I want to get back to helping people because it provides the best environments to learn and grow. Very hard to grow in a place when everyone knows everything.

    Congrats, you're off to a nice start :rockout:

    And not too much longer until you get a silver in HCMD2 :toast:

    I'm ~75 days of runtime away from a sapphire in C4CW, so I've already added HPF2 back in to the mix :cool:

    Log in to WCG website and look at your Device Manager -> Device Profiles. In there as well as choosing what projects you will have this option at the bottom:

    [​IMG]

    I got well over 100 queued up between my computers.


    EDIT: The reason they disable that by default is to avoid computers with larger work queues that barely meet the requirements not being able to complete them by their deadline (assumption of mine of course)

    I've already done that, and I still only get 1 per computer @ any one time :(

    Almost entire C4CW and HPF2 WUs :ohwell:

    Yep, badge whore here as well :roll:

    I just switched all of my systems to a different device profile with that enabled, hopefully that'll give them more CEP2 WUs :)

    Sapphire in C4CW (although, much closer to barely making it than I would have suspected):

    Now doing exclusively CEP2 and HPF2, although many systems still have C4CW WUs in their queues
