Title: Le mini trek
Post by: vaio on October 23, 2005, 07:48:36 PM

Mini base camp style trek has begun.

Lilsmap, TLD and tellingd (VAIO) are already there.

Mission target for now........get them into top 500 for points.

Team Seychelles up from 597th to 588th for points.
A decent first day, helped by yorkyboy's decision to visit them at the same time  :P

Go trekkers go  :thumb:  :thumb:  :thumb:

 We are here (http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/viewTeamInfo.do?teamId=HTFGHK7WN1)

This WILL be a mini-trek at this rate  :P

Of course we don't mind passing the target  :wink:

A nice turnout for this rather spontaneous trek...........including Cuz we are now 8.

Yorkyboy also so the Seychelles crew will soon be on the rise  :thumb:  :thumb:  :thumb:

What's up with the @bc suffix? Won't that split your project stats between two users?  :think:


Title: Le mini trek
Post by: PiNkY on October 24, 2005, 04:20:08 PM
yep :P


though some of us had half a dozen names at grid, so didn't bother us too much...just depends if you want to see all your stats together or not :lol:

I already had another 'user' at WCG - made a second one (VAIO GRX616) to help out the pup and it kind of got out of hand :huh:

If you want to contribute to two teams at the same time, you need two IDs. I'd rather move one ID around to different teams. I don't mind spreading my points around but I'd like to keep all my WCG stats under one ID. That's just me... :popcorn:

In the past I only had one username but I didn't really have a home team either....I just loaded UdMon to my two main computers, created a @bc username, and started treking...That way when we go trekking all I have to do is start UdMon and get new workunits....I did not want to move over all my machines because I think of Cruncher Inc. as my home base to trek from...

Kept vaio at home to keep things orderly  :P

lilsmap does the trekking now for me

It was a good day to go trekking...We really moved them along with a big hit from USAFA 82....


Title: Le mini trek
Post by: vaio on October 25, 2005, 03:51:56 AM
That was a solid stats day  :P


Title: Le mini trek
Post by: VAIO GRX616 on October 25, 2005, 05:21:56 AM
Yep, I'd call 37k in one day solid ;)

Nah, we call that a warm up  :P

Oops, nearly in the top 500 already.....shall we go for 400 instead?  :P

I figure that it will take about two more weeks to hit our goal....I vote we make this a true three week trek and end on the 12th of November....

Post by: Cousin Caterpillar on October 27, 2005, 11:17:38 AM
I might have to opt for a modified trek. I joined the trek initially because I knew it would only take a few days to break into the top 500. If I stay on to help get to the top 400, I'll have been away from home for 6 weeks straight! :shock:
 

Six weeks is the same amount of time I spent with Crunchers Inc prior to the Gauntlet.
 
I might get homesick before we reach 400. :cry:

Until then.....   :fridaynite:

Treks are 100% optional..........one completed unit and you are officially a trekker  :P

Everyone is free to come and go as they please  :wink:

Post by: VAIO GRX616 on October 27, 2005, 12:34:49 PM
I'm easy.  Besides, I need to give Compy a chance to catch me before I get my new toy online  :twisted:


Title: Le mini trek

Hadn't looked at it that way. If I let a few folks ease on by.......mwaaahahaha :twisted:

We made the rules simple from the start, one result and you were there.....This is about helping other teams reach there goals but still remembering that we have a home base to crunch for also....You have done more then you share CUZ so I will see you back home in a couple of weeks...

Sounds good to me.....I think that the first trek back is going well so far...


Title: Le mini trek
Post by: vaio on October 29, 2005, 02:24:58 PM
Yes, considering it was an "off the cuff" kinda thing with little notice.
I am sure the next one will be even more successful.  :D
