    To compensate for me not crunching 24/7 (177,481 points since I downloaded the client two days ago) I'll throw in a Sleeping Dogs steam key. PM coming to you.

    Pretty much. By tomorrow I'd expect we'd have enough points we could quit then and still win :p
    Entirely possible--although both of those seem redundant. I'm not really sure why something like that would be done.

    Careful- one of the larger Teams like Xtremesystems can always join up late with all of their resources and bury us in a few days :p

    I'm not counting a win until the close of the 7th day ;)

    Very, very well done. Eventually it becomes infectious--soon you'll have to keep adding more threads in order to pull down new and higher badges in more projects. The quest for all emerald and sapphire is intense :)

    Ion if you "move" to Denmark you will be 5th, much better then 19th in Norway ;)

    To stay almost on topic then running GPU HCC is not the way to get badges, as you say you have to run some CPU as well. My 8 GPUs (2x3 plus two real ones) more or less takes 7 days away form my normal run time.

    And back to animal: Congrat with your first badge.
