Picked up another Diamond 5 year badge, this time for SCC.
Working on 5 years at FAH2 now.
5 year diamond badge for SCC before it finishes. Averages about 37.5 BOINC pphr. I didn't bunker much.

50 years SCC
Before they close I was chasing the 10years badge for SCC
FAAH2 - 10 Years -
FAAH2 - 5 Years -
Too tired to find and post the badge, here's a cut and paste from the BOINC Mgr notices - World Community Grid: Congratulations, you've earned a Diamond 10 Year badge for your contribution to Mapping Cancer Markers
Received my Diamond
for Smash Childhood Cancer.
The timing of this, for me, is a little different than usual. A very close friend ours son, who recently turned 17, just started going through chemo and gods know what else due to testicular caner that spread to his lymph nodes. Stage 2 IIRC. Thankfully the boy had the brains to talk to his parents about something that didn't feel right vs. keeping his mouth shut. He's an amazing kid; exceptional actually. Brains, physical strength, generosity, humor and a handsome lad to boot. Seriously, this kids list of scholastic and physical accomplishments is amazing; but you'd never really guess as he just seems so... normal. All we can do is hope they caught it early enough for the meds, and his own sheer will, to do their job. This young man, his big sister and their parents were genuinely there for us when our youngest died four years ago. The thought of having to be on the flip side of that proverbial coin depresses me more than I can express.
Amen! And all the best to the son of your friends!
And OpenZika heading towards 10
I even have some HSTB in the queue
8 years - MIP, ZIKA, FAAH2
200 million WCG points
Points Generated (Rank) 200,082,452 (#1,052)
Finally picked up Silver in HSTB:
With the recent flood of HSTB I finally got my first full year
Given it say until March 2019 I doubt I get 5 or 10 :-(
Hmm, all 70 cores for 20 days ... might give it a shot
and just another one
for OZ ...
still try to get 5 for HSTB and then focus on FAH2 to get it from 6 to 10
