    So you didn't get that C4SW Sapphire badge either... :(

    Are you going to take a risk and run CEP2 and try to push for at leas ruby or emerald there?

    I'm just 40 days of runtime away from Emerald in GFAM and 50 days in SN2S :)

    Just ran out of time on C4SW :shadedshu

    I'm currently getting about 50-60 days per month on CEP2. I've had trouble with that wu in the past with some of my rigs throwing errors so I'm proceeding slowly with that one :eek:

    I know, it was hard. I'm still sore about it :(

    Fair enough. I got my CEP2 badge back in 2010 when I had the 50-55 cores of the school Comp Lab. It was two dozen+ PentDCs running WinXP x86, which is an OS that will run basically any WCG project without issue. That and the school has massive bandwidth, so the 20MB/WU upload wasn't an issue.

    But I don't really run it any more, I'm chasing other badges. Once I get a sapphire in everything, then I'll go back to running everything. If there isn't a new project out by then. I hope there is--these are fun!

    I'm no where near the caliber of [Ion] or HammerOn (Add in: or Chicken Patty), and I'm glad to see that I'm not the only noob-ish one here lol :p

    Hopefully soon I'll have my own little display case of awesome badges! :toast:

    You'll get there eventually. Badges really are something that takes consistent dedication--while you can get a ton of points from the GPUs, the badges take a ton of runtime (which can only be accomplished with more cores or running a long time). What I have is the result of three+ years of crunching ;)

    Also, 3 + years on 1 quad core with various dual cores chipping in at various points :p
