Default WUProp has badges!

...and badges...and more badges...and still more badges!

So, how do you get a badge? Well, apparently, all work before the badges were implemented doesn't count. For new work, if you get 100 hours running each of 20 different applications, you get one bronze badge. From there I can't figure it out.

There can be multiple applications, by the way, per project. PrimeGrid, for instance, has quite a few, and if you run all the rest of the races this year you should get about seven that way. But the same application on different platforms is all grouped together, so PPS Sieve on a Mac GPU and a Windows CPU are grouped together.

Still, 20 applications is a lot. So I don't have a badge yet, even though they've apparently been counting work for about the past 10 days. Seems like no one else on the TeAm does either. Who will be first?
Look for really BIG primes with TeAm AnandTech PrimeGrid!
Next race: August 2-5

Serial Peacemaker: i3-6100, 32GB DDR4-2666, GA-Z170N, .5TB MX200, 9TB HDDs

Can never have enough badges... I added my rigs since it's non-cpu intensive.

BTW, asteroids@home has badges too. They are butt-ugly though!


GLeeM has two badges: http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/sho...hp?userid=4081

very cool.

Even nicer was that it apparently started while I still had a day (or so) left seventeen or bust for primegrid
