    So, how many Badges do you have?

    For those of you who don't know about the badges at PrimeGrid, I will give a short summary.

    Bronze- Sieve projects > 20,000 points. LLR projects > 10,000points

    Silver- Sieve > 200,000. LLR >100,000

    Gold- Sieve > 1,000,000. LLR > 500,000

    Amethyst- Sieve > 2,500,000. LLR > 1,250,000

    So far, I only have a Bronze for CW sieve.

    What have you got??

    15, can't get the 16th as it's on TPS and that's retired

    I was going to incorporate the badges into the tag but it didn't quite look right..

    1 Amethyst (AP26)
    2 Silver (PPS LLR and TRP Sieve)
    all the rest bronze, but I'm working on it.

    Welcome, JohnWayne. Looks like you've added 321 Sieve in the last day or so. Looks like I'm going to get bumped down to #4 on the PrimeGrid team page before too long.

    Only 3 badges for me. Silver for PSP Sieve and SoB, and bronze for TRP Sieve.

    I hope to get PSA and TRP LLR eventually, and then get them to silver.

    My main interest is the various Sierpinski problems, and to a lesser extent Riesel, so that's where I direct most of my crunching.

    I just got two more bronzes in Sieve categories. Once I get a bronze in each sieve, I will then move onto a LLR project one at a time. Make all 14 bronzes then move to silvers.

    I accidentally got a silver in PPS Sieve. Forgot to change to a different project.

    Off to get the bronzes in the LLR projects now.

    I am not

    I am doing Cullen LLR WUs and they take more than 5 days to complete.

    Soooooooo, I won't be doing any scoring for a couple of days and then the flood gates will release.

    I'm up to 9 bronze and one silver. Another break from scoring because the PSP LLR WUs are over 60 hours long. I should get my bronze with just 3 days of crunching.

    The SOB bronze will only need one WU to get, but I guess I should let every machine do 4 and see how that goes.

    I think it took me 2 SoB wu's to get the bronze, perhaps they adjusted the credits since then though.

    I remember reading somewhere that there is a slowdown when running more than one llr task at a time on a multicore machine. I don't know if that has ever been resolved. You might want to run on SoB task and three sieves at a time to get the best speed.

    My first two SoB credits were about 6000 and 9000, respectively. I'm hoping for more with the batch I'm running now to get my silver.

    I've added 321 LLR and PSP sieve to my silver collection, giving me 1 purple, 4 silver, and 10 bronze.

    Wow, congrats on the Barney badge. Those are hard to get. It really takes some dedication for those suckers.
