    Especially good if you're pursuing a badge in it, once I get my sapphire I think I'm going to switch over to another project and get another emerald or sapphire, then maybe I'll do a mix of all. Hopefully by the time I have HCC, C4CW, and HPF2 to sapphire they'll have CEP2 for Windows :toast:

    What exactly is CEP 2, saw a thread over at XS from a google search, but not really understanding it.

    Already did bro, all they get is HCC. CEP2 is still selected, but the only non-HCC ones they get are the CEP2 Betas :ohwell:

    As soon as they're out of beta - could someone post a thread? I sometimes miss a couple days (or more) and won't see it otherwise. I will check my wu's of course, but sometimes I don't even do that.

    I'm switching over to CEP2 exclusively (with the option to take other work if there aren't enough wu's - of course) once that's out of beta.

    I'll do my best to remember, but ION is usually more on top of these things than me. :toast:

    Well, from yesterday to today we closed in on the Chinese and we pulled away from Ukraine. Still in fourth but at this rate it should take no more than two days to move into third.

    New to this thread is the "Under the Radar" feature. It's in the OP and its' the team that we are targeting to get. In this case I would say it's the Czechs as the chinese are basically history already. Can we reach them? Let's see...

    Well, I'll be posting our progress on closing in on 2nd place daily now. :toast:

    EDIT: Just noticed the Czech are about to overtake us in a day :(

    Yep, I agree. But look at HWC in F@H, we kept pushing slowly but surely and why's happening now? That shows that you can never give up :toast:

    Todays' Update guys.

    We closed in on 3rd place and keep pulling away from fifth. However, 2nd place has gained an additonal 1,073 Points on us in the lead since yesterday. Gotta step it up fellas, gotta get 2nd place! :rockout:

    Here's the update to a challenge I joined us in late, but not too late. This is in memory of a fellow WCG cruncher. I personally did not know who he was, but figured it was the least we can do to honor a fellow cruncher. :) I'll target here is Team China who is the leader, we are doing better PPD daily than them so let's see what we can do from here till the end of the year. :rockout:

    I can see overtaking team china, but with the kind of lead the czechs have just 5 days in, won't we need something miracle-like? I'm gung-ho for our team too, but it reminds of XS and Easynews - we kept shooting for easynews and they bribing, ummm I mean adding more and more new users. I hope we can do it, but those stats are certainly intimidating.

    It's definitely a challenge and it doesn't look very promising but we'll give it a shot. :rockout:

    Well today's update sees us closing in on Team China and pulling away from Ukraine. However the team we are targeting keeps pulling away from us. :(

    For this challenge, today's update sees us moving up two spots and continue to gain pull away from the rest. Are Targe which is 2nd place is still putting out some good numbers, but we are reeling them in slowly. Question is, would we be able to do it by the end of the year? At this rate no, that's why we need to step it up! :rockout:

    It seems like my wife by mistake took my i7 away from folding and made it crunch so there is a little extra for the challenges. My hex will soon be joining I hope as it seems to be doing nothing.
