    Just got my first gold.

    After my current queue of HPF2 units is finished I'll go full steam on CEP2, going for sapphire eventually. :toast:

    I thought CEP2 was in intermittent status?

    HPF2 and GFAM went intermittent recently. CEP2 did not.

    Yup, the Grid is down to just four full-time projects ATM. I'm definitely hoping for some more soon!

    Sometime in the next few days, WIN 8.1 will be available. That will allow me to set it to boot to Desktop. That will be the cure to one of my biggest dislikes. It will also upgrade the search to include everything, instead of the goofy singular search. Also, something I look forward to. As for a Start button? I am getting used to not having it and using the goofy Metro. I just switch over and enter my search text and it tries to bring up what I want, it is limited now but, supposedly will improve with the 8.1 release, as I mentioned.

    It was a hard pill to swallow but I am happy that MS has been willing to make some changes to make it better. Hopefully, it will continue to evolve for the better.

    Due to time constraints, I have done very little in the way of tinkering with this OS or BIOS, i.e. none. Aside from cleaning up the Metro via deletion and Tile moving plus, shutting off all the "Live" Tiles, I have just been crunching and playing Marvel on Facebook.

    I also have bought a Humble Bundle and have played a couple of games, none of them, so far have played hard enough to stumble the HD4000 integrated Graphics. I am not a Gamer and didn't get this for that so...Whatever, I think I have gone on enough!

    Never posted in this tread

    I hope for the sapphire badge in FAAH and that's all.

    Awesome! :toast:
    If the project is about to end and you don't have the badge yet, don't hesitate to shout out to the team--Norton and I have been known to help out members with just a little ways to go ;)

    Great work Daimus! :toast:-:respect:

    and [Ion] is 100% correct- I have no issues whatsoever using one or all of my rigs to help out a fellow Team member... consider the offer valid for any Team member at any time :)

    See, this is what I love about TPU! :toast:

    Members who realize that it's about the science, not the points, and are willing to carry through and help others with their goals :)

    The Beta badges are really hard to get! The insanely bad single-threaded performance of my Opty system was what bought my the Silver badge--the FAAH Beta WUs at 16-18 hours each * 16 threads added up fast :)

    Looks good! :toast:

    FYI- you can tweak the CEP2 project to run more than one wu at a time ;)

    Would it really matter? With ~3 days in a queue I maybe only get one or two CEP2 WU's total :(
