    Hey guys!

    I'll be proudly representing Brazil in this contest! :toast:

    I've noticed a small typo at the very beginning of this contest's rules/regulations.

    On item number 1.:

    "The giveaway starts December 01, 2010 and ends January 31, 2010 (2 months)."

    Hmmm... It ends before it begins... Interesting! :D

    I guess I will join for the sake of it, even though my set-up is perfect as it is.

    Just to get something clear when the competition refers to "2x PowerColor future AMD high-end graphics card (one every month)" are they referring to the chance that a person could win a 69xx series AMD Graphics card? :twitch:

    EDIT: Goodluck Everyone ^^

    Does that mean only one of my computers at home since they share an IP through NAT?
    Seems a bit unclear whether it means what it says, just looking for confirmation.

    If you have one system and two IPs then it would be restrained by the "Only one entry per system" part.
    If you have two systems sharing one IP then it would be restrained by the "Only one entry per IP" part.

    So, this means that only one system from a household if the household shares one IP. Also only one system from a dorm, school, workplace or ISP sharing one IP. (some ISPs makes all customers share one IP, mostly in use on 3G, but some places also adsl and wlan)

    Some ISPs lets each household get 5 IPs at the same time, but most use dhcp that lets you change the ip on reconnect or it changes automatically every night (yeah, my friend really hates that).

    It could also mean the internal IP of the computers (such as 10.0.0.100), but that seems unlikely.

    To me it would seem most fair to say "Only one entry per system", since that does not handicap those forced to share one IP.

    you can submit all your unique household computers that are behind a router that share the same ip, no problem

    Thank you for the clarification :)
    Maybe the rule page should be changed as well, so that it is correct.
