Today, I’d like to show you another nice badge that I got due to my Distributed Computing contribution. This time, the badge is from the World Community Grid project, specifically, the FightAIDS@Home – Phase 2.
I got the Diamond 10 Year badge, which is awarded once you do 10 years CPU time contribution. This badge looks as follows:
This is the notice I got in BOINC:
And these are my stats up until this point:
Right now, I’m contributing to this project on my Android devices, so keep expecting more badges from me!
Diamond 5 Year Badge for Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid
Yesterday, I got the Diamond 5 Year Badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid. The badge is the following:
This badge is awarded after contributong 5 Years in CPU Time. As I’ve explained in my previous badge achievements, CPU Time is like real time, except that the time is dependent to a workunit and per thread. For example, If I have an 8 Core AMD Ryzen 7 with Simultaneus Multithreading enabled, making it 16 threads total, and I get 16 workunits from this project and they are running simultianeusly, it means that the time is multiplied by 16 because all 16 threads are running the project application. In other words, CPU time is the time a workunit has ran in the PC. 16 Workunits running for an hour means 16 CPU Time hours.
This is the notice I got in BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing):
(Yes, I need to update BOINC)
Here’s my stats up to this point:
Here are more stats:
I’m contributing to the current active projects in World Community Grid 24/7 in a variety of devices.
Keep an eye for future achievements!
My World Community Grid Statistics for November 10, 2017
In this post, I’ll share my World Community Grid statistics so you all know my progress on their different Distributed Computing projects:
As you can see from the above stats, I just need one more year to obtain the Diamond 5 Year medal for Microbiome Immunity Project.
I also need 3 more years for FightAIDS@Home to obtain the 20 Year Diamond Badge.
As you saw in my two earlier posts, I’ve been moving my equipment and configuring them. That’s why the past few days my contribution was lower, but today, they have performed a lot of computations and returned more tasks.
Oh, and I also got some Beta tasks!
And now, let’s take a look at BOINC:
Right now, I’m configuring BOINCTasks so that I can monitor all of my machines from one place 😁
That’s all for this post!
Got the Sapphire Badge for World Community Grid’s Microbiome Immunity Project!
I finally got the Sapphire badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project from IBM’s World Community Grid. This is a badge that is awarded after performing 2 CPU-time years of contribution toward a project.
This is the new shiny badge I got:
The message I got in BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing):
And here are my stats as of now:
There’s still no power in Puerto Rico where my 24-thread server is located, and even if there’s power, there’s a change there’s no internet services, so my stats here doesn’t show my contribution for that server. I hope the power and internet services gets restored soon!
These are the projects I’ve set to contribute and earn the rest of the badges:
My plans doesn’t change. I will continue crunching to these projects and try to earn the next badges 😁
Today, I got another badge in World Community Grid, and it’s the Emerald Badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project!
This means I’ve processed 1 year worth of workunits in my machines.
The next badge will be the Sapphire Badge, awarded after processing 2 CPU-time years of workunits.
The message I got in BOINC:
My stats so far:
My workunits in one of my machines:
I’ll be contributing toward this project as well FightAIDS@Home and see if I can get the next badges 😁. My goal is to reach 20 years on those projects. I’m also participating in Help Stop TB, but tasks on that one are rarely delivered to my machines.
Here you can see the projects I’ve selected to contribute:
And yes, I’m also contributing toward the MilkyWay@Home project as can be seen on the BOINC screenshot above.
That’s all for this update!
I got the Diamond 20 Year badge for OpenZika from World Community Grid!
Today night, I got the Diamond 20 Year Badge from the World Community Grid Project: OpenZika. This badge is awarded after contributing 20 years in CPU-time to this project.
The badge is the following:
Here is the message I just got in BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing):
And here’s my stats for the World Community Grid project in general:
I’ll be focusing now in getting the Diamond 20 Year Badge for FightAIDS@Home – Phase 1, since I already have contributed 17 years on that once, I just need to crunch a few more tasks to reach 20 years. I’m also still participating in the Help Stop TB and Microbiome Immunity Project, in which I should be getting the Sapphire badge pretty soon. Wish me luck!
Please note that I’m contributing with several machines, but due to Hurricane Maria, my 24-thread server is currently turned off as there’s still no electricity in Puerto Rico, where the server is located. All of the rest of my machines (and my Steem Witness) are running in Florida, USA. Once power is restored in Puerto Rico and the server can be turned on again, it will again be contributing toward these projects.
That’s all for this update!
20 year badge for Outsmart Ebola Together! Another project from IBM World Community Grid
I did it! I finally got the Diamond 20 year badge for my contribution toward the Smash Childhood Cancer from World Community Grid.
This came as a surprise since these days I’ve only been crunching tasks with my 24-thread server which is located in Puerto Rico. All of my other machines were disabled since Sunday due to Hurricane Irma passing over the State of Florida. They are all now activated once again since we just got power again. You can see in the stats below that for these pasts days, there was little contribution done compared to the rest of the past days.
The badge is the following:

My World Community Grid stats up to this point:
Now, I’ve changed the priority to receive some Outsmart Ebola Together, FightAIDS@Home, Help Stop TB, and Microbiome Immunity Project tasks, to collect the next badges of those projects 🙂
Let’s Keep Crunching!
