    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. :\
