    That's what happens when you don't clean your rig enough. ;)

    Looks like your fans are doing dirty things to your heatsinks while you're not looking.

    So my number are down quite a lot, this is thanks to my room being small. My rig heats up the room far too quickly and the AC thermostat is in the hallway, so it doesn't realize it should keep cooling my room. :(

    No job = more time ;)
    Can you possibly move one of the rigs?
    Or have a box fan blowing out of your room? (what I do)

    we have talked about this already and we both are lazy. I clean my rads when i have them out of the case for flushing them and/or adding/changing parts. so it doesn't happen that often :laugh:
    but i also workout alot and hard when i do so i don't feel like doing much for awhile after.

    That's a no. My rig has to stay in my room, unless I want some asshat fucking with my gear. That's a big no-go for me.

    Don't have a box fan, and my cat likes to sit in the window. :laugh:

    Damn :(

    I can't move things to other rooms, but I usually have a fan blowing air out of my room---makes it a lot more bearable ;)

    A box fan is only like $20 at Walmart ;)

    Uh, not here. They jack the price up for fans every summer, fans that were $20 are now $40-60.

    I have a floor fan that works great for when I'm home, I just blow air out of the room. :D

    having the AC run 24/7 like i do here helps greatly. I am also going to look into getting a window unit to cool it down more because sometimes it still gets too hot for me.

    AC does run 24/7, the issue is I have to keep my door closed most of the time/window closed. :(

    GL :D
    Fans are still cheap here fortunately :)
    That's a nice thing to do if you can convince your parents it's worth the extra electricity for that. Thus far I have been unable to do so

    So I've had my WCG username filled in in My Options, I've got over 100k points, what do I need to next to get the WCG Cruncher badge? Does a certain mod or admin have to apply it?

    100,000 WCG or Boinc points? You need 100,000 boinc points, which is equal to 700,000 WCG points.

    Yeah, I've got 741,562 WCG points (~106k BOINC). I've tried logging in and out, saving just a blank field for the username in the options and then saving my name again. Nothing is working.

    @ Wile E,

    yeah he's got the points, I and a few members helped him reach it so I am sure he has them.

    Soylent it has to be identical to how it is in WCG.

    Not needed, it might take a few udpates. When did you do it?

    I've had the username in there for a month or two, I was testing to see if the badge would show up (I didn't know you get it at 100k). Since then as I said I tried resetting it. I think it has been 2 updates since the 100k mark now.
    Chicken Patty says thanks.
