    I've actually switched most of my systems back to other projects, but they still have several days worth of HCC WUs left in the cache :toast:

    The WCG badge is linked to Free-DC, which is, as Gopal mentioned, currently experiencing technical difficulties. It'll be back, I promise! :)

    We fell just short of the 80 million mark but still a total ownage and ended up in first place two challenges in a row. :rockout: great job everyone. Now to gear up for our next challenge, this will be much harder and you'll know why when you look at the teams competing. :eek:

    Harder it may be, but I welcome a good challenge! Just sailing through life unopposed isn't as exciting as putting up a good fight once in a while ;)

    Not sure if I stumbled on this by accident or I'm the last one to the party.. but the hosts of the (8th Birthday) challenge have a dedicated page to track the progress on an hourly basis:

    http://www.seti-germany.de/wcg/statistiken/challenge.php

    And.. we're winning! But this is seriously close!

    Sweet! :D

    Looked like SETI.Germany started switching over to WCG from other projects this am so I'm not sure we can hold it. [/crosses fingers]

    Started on overclocking my FX-8 rigs a little while ago.... will try to get an extra 10-15% out of them :)

    ** EDIT- did you notice we had several mentions on the message board in that link :D **
