    FYI- I'll be going through the prize list when I get home tonight to make sure everyone got or is getting their stuff.

    Apologies for any delays- It was getting late last night and needed to get some sleep.

    Couple of more notes:
    - a few people put the games they won back into the prize pool so we can either:
    A- redraw new winners for the games available
    B- add them in as part of a kick-off giveaway for the next challenge (starts 11/16)

    - If anyone wants to throw something into a prize pool for the next challenge please let me know.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks! :toast:

    The things in my FS thread are not worth it to get shipped overseas I think, and I wouldn't know what else to offer.

    I suggest putting the games in the pool for next challenge.

    I could probably help with something at some point. Would have to look some things over.

    I think throwing them back in would be cool! :)

    I'll see what I can pick up this weekend--I'd say I should be able to score some HDDs or perhaps PSUs. Maybe a C2D CPU or two.

    Hey Team- don't go crazy trying to find items for another prize pool on such short notice. I just put that up in case anyone really wanted to put something in...

    We'll start planning next month for another contest for late-January or early February that way we have time to plan for something special :cool:

    In the meantime, I'll plan to do a redraw of some of the games we have left for the kick-off of the new challenge tomorrow.

    Remember there is always the Cruncher's Helping Crunchers thread here to offer up any items you are willing to donate or ask if someone else has something you need... we do our best here to help each other keep our rigs crunching! :toast:

    Hmm, I dunno. On another note, I put my 3770k and 680 on crunching for a bit. Gotta recount for the last couple days :)

    Excellent! :D :toast:

    FYI- I like your signature comment but it's incomplete:

    we rearrange the atoms in dirt, water and air we can make potatoes.

    we rearrange the atoms in dirt, water and air we can make potatoes.... add a little time, bacteria, and love and we can make Vodka Fixed!!! :laugh:
