Nice that I have managed to get enough of the new tasks fairly quickly.

Good stuff! I should have a look at how much covid crunching is going on right now. Quite a lot I think!

Hi Penny

Very well done :-) :obscene-drinkingcheers: :happy-cheerleadersmileyguy: :happy-cheerleadersmileygirl: :happy-partydance:

Might be a while before the Gold badge comes into view...so, carry on as you are ;-)

WCG badges
If anyone else wants to earn WCG badges then here's the "how to" which I just found on the WCG website and this explains how to get a better badge:
Bronze - 14 days
Silver - 45 days
Gold - 90 days
Ruby - 180 days
Emerald - 1 year
Sapphire - 2 years
Diamond - recognizing higher levels of contribution of 5, 10, 20, 50 and up to 100 years of computing time
So, if one is concentrating on any WCG project, earning badges doesn't appear to be about earning "points", it's more about the number of days one of "computing time" spent on each sub-project.

regards
Tim

So that was slightly under 2 months to go from bronze to silver, and a smidge less to get gold. Perhaps there might be more of that type of task being made available? Whatever, it's giving me a warm glow!!!
