Default Badge news: GPUGrid

Did you know GPUGrid has badges now? I just discovered it. They actually have two kinds. The first is a chemical - maybe an amino acid - for your total points earned. Edit: Here's an overview of the badges.

But the second type is more interesting to me: You get "water" badges for each published article your work has contributed to. Furthermore, unlike the recently added WUProp badges, these badges are retroactive. I apparently was in the top 50% of contributors to "Optimized Potential of Mean Force Calculations for Standard Binding Free Energies". So why not take a look at your profile and see what you've accomplished?

Yes they are amino acids. I'm about to go from valine to threonine and I've also contributed to 5 publications. Top quality science at GPUGrid!

They have the badges for some time now. It's interesting to see how your computers contributed to their papers and field of research (they list deseases too). A bit like the plot reports on rosetta.

I have 4 "top10%" badges

Oh, I thought it had been only a month, since January 23. I see it's been a year and a month. It's that time of year.
