    We have about a week to go before this challenge starts- time to finish up any loose ends on our rigs and get ready. :toast:

    I'll be working on getting the challenge thread launched and getting an announcement over to the News dept. over the weekend. If anyone has any comments or suggestions prior to launching the thread please post it here as soon as you can. ;)

    My rigs are pretty much ready. :)

    My only suggestion for those of us with limited rigs is to get a good amount of gaming in before the challenge starts! That's my goal; in fact this weekend I'm having a LAN at my house, all day sausage fest with killing zombies :D

    So the challenge shall begin and we shall have fun :toast:

    Obviously I'm 100% in :toast:
    We'll see if I can get the new setup going in the next week...anything's possible, but it would be a stretch at the very least :eek:

    Oh my! Thanks for reminding! Gonna have to do a lot of preparations over those few days left so I could crunch without any interruptions through the challenge whatsoever. Looking forward to it a lot. :toast:

    I'll be right there. :laugh:

    I think I have all the rigs going that I can manage. Should be just long enough for them to spool.

    The "official" Challenge thread will go live when I get home from work (i.e. in about 8 hrs or so)

    I have put in a request to the news dept. for a TPU front page article. Expect to see that soon as well. :)

    I will do Canada/Mexico on the Grand prize and the cooler I put up if the winner pays the difference in shipping. I can check with the other members who donated items to see if they will do the same ;)
