Timbo gets to the 1m mark on WCG

Post by UBT - Timbo » Sun Jan 05, 2020 10:39 pm

Hi all,

It's taken a while - in fact longer than I expected, but one milestone that I've now achieved in 2020 is to reach the 1 million mark on WCG.

It's not a good earner in terms of credits per hour spent, but the overall "cause" is very worthwhile. So one can feel slightly smug at having contributed something...and even though I'll never be in the Top 10, Top 100, or even Top 100,000 on WCG, I've at least played a small part in the grand scheme of things.

I wonder if you get a badge for one million? - probably...but I'll settle for a small glass of wine in celebration ;-)

regards
Tim

Yes, Iv'e been crunching WCG for a long time and I'm at a little over 900k, so a way to go for the million yet. Well done.

Well done. As you say, it’s a worthwhile and beneficial project ... except when it comes to credits!

Nicely done Tim, the low credits makes it more difficult than most projects but also more satisfying.
