    I think I've contacted everyone who has won something I donated, whether games, PayPal, or hardware. If I overlooked something, please let me know. Until next challenge :toast:

    Big thanks to HammerON who is sending me the FM2 board from the challenge prize pool :cool:

    Sorry I was out, now I'm at home. Who won something? Wait... I don't follow, pick a number? a number for what?

    There should be a new thread presenting the winners!!! ...and a score table for those of us wanting to know how well we did (despite not being a prize winner) :)
    How did we ended? #1 i believe, go TPU !

    Post #1 has all the days and their respective points so that's where you need to look for standings, while post #2 contains all the winners of their respective prizes.

    I mean no disrespect, but perhaps you can spend more time with the team and the postings, which would clarify these things for you. We would certainly welcome more interaction :)

    But you are correct, TPU fid an awesome job. :respect:

    Sounds to me like someone will be spanking it come the Chimp Challenge! :laugh: That's going to be some monstrous folding action!

    Why are you all talking about folding suddenly?

    Have my desktops graphics for folding once I can open my window again.

    Lack of time man, lack of time... going back to post #1 is also counter-intuitive, but there it was, great for the results, TPU #1 on all weeks :D

    I'll be there next challenge :)

    Manofthem pretty much summed it up- I put everything in the OP (post #1 and #2)... please let me know if I forget something there and I'll get them updated- I forget sometimes :oops:

    ** EDIT- we do have a challenge results thread here- I'll try to get it updated later today...

    See post below ;)
    The TPU Folding Team members always step up and give us a boost when asked to help out- we try our best to return the favor and help them out if we can! :cool:

    Here's some good practice spanking chimps. Oh, don't worry, this version's safe for work.

    Innuendo aside, I think that game has been around since.. Middle school? Maybe High? 2003 ish?

    I'm pretty sure we're all set with the prizes now- please let me know if there are any outstanding issues and we'll get those resolved.

    @stinger608- as discussed, I'll have your rig out to you by the end of the week but am still on the lookout for a replacement s1156 cpu for the bum i3-530. On a positive note- the Pentium dual core it has now seems to be running great!

    Sounds like we are all wrapped up pretty much. I heard back from Doc41 today and the Thief Steam key worked without issue so he's finally taken care of 100%.

    Between the bum i3 and the bum Thief game, we had a fair share of hiccups this challenge, but never do we let our spirits dampen!


    Great work team and thanks to all for your hard work! :respect: :respect:
