    This happens when I'm using the computer continuously - there's no way I'm going idle for long enough to fire the GPU up. I know this because my screensaver is on a shorter timer.

    I use my computer in my office so if can heat the room, no heater.

    I guess I'll do the same at my house xD

    Many thanks to everyone for all the help.

    Almost reached the object of cracking the top 100 (team wise).

    Got some lovely badges that I should probably show off here on TPU and elsewhere to raise awareness.

    Any other signatures we can have?

    I'm in awe of some of the numbers some of you guys put up.

    Cheers

    You can display your WCG individual badges in your signature- if anyone is interested I can hunt down the link..... it used to be in Twilyth's sig- but he isn't here anymore :ohwell:

    Paste one of these in your signature, wrapping [​IMG] around it:

    - http://http://stats.free-dc.org/projusertag.php?proj=bwcg&id=834618&theme=16

    - http://stats.free-dc.org/cpidtagb.php?cpid=339fe1b4c8f143c85f20c40b1a356a6f&theme=16&cols=1

    You can get a different theme by adding the number immediately after "theme=" in the URL.
    The lower one only makes sense if you run multiple BOINC projects (like I do). An example of the lower option can be seen in my signature.

    Are we automagically entered to win and how long do we have to respond? I'll be out of the country for the weekend, but will check in occasionally on my phone.

    I don't think you need to worry- there will be a reasonable response time given to the winners.

    Checking in over the weekend will be helpful though ;)


    EDIT- this link will let you show your your individual WCG project badges in your sig:

    http://www.seti-germany.de/wcg/show_badge_picture_bild.php

    Follow the instructions and then use the address of the pic that's generated in your sig ;)

    Will look like this:

    I wanted to apologize for the downtime because I was in the contest. Even though I probably gained enough points to clear an entry, I got slammed with moving and a lot of work (feast or famine job) and didn't have any time to really set anything up. My room is still in shambles as I type this, my second machine isn't even up yet.

    Am I the only one who thinks this last month of the challenge passed by really quickly? It seems like just a few days ago we were hearing about the upcoming challenge, and now we are all finished up. Fast month :eek:

    It's great to see so many new members of the team, all the stones they hit and all the points they pulled down. The amazing team spirit is flourishing here at TPU and what could we ask for?! Hopefully we can all keep on crunching strong and rocking the WUs. Even if some of our new members can continue at a reduced rate, that's still a terrific contribution and difference!

    We appreciate the hard work done by [Ion], Chicken Patty, Norton, all those who donated hardware and/or software, and all those who gave their time, resources, energies, and pc's. :respect: :respect:

    Great work everyone :toast: :respect: :toast: :respect: :toast:

    Congratulations to all winners!

    Although it is a shame I could not involve myself much in this challenge, I did keep track of it whenever possible and I must say that it has been a resounding success! It gave many new TPU members the opportunity to join, help & encourage each other, have some fun entering giveaways and most importantly working together as a worldwide team to contribute in WCG projects!

    My appreciation goes to all, for your WCG contributions and generosity towards this challenge! especially the senior members, who undoubtedly had to dedicate more time than usual into running this challenge! :respect:

    I need not say it, but yes - I am proud to be part of this great team! :peace:
    KieX, Chevalr1c, okidna and 4 others say thanks.
