    But remember, they are so non-committal.:roll: Should not be a problem.

    Everybody got their rigs ready for the challenge? :D

    I'll be starting about 3 days ahead of time (the 11th likely) with the "borrowed" rig so it'll be spooled up by the 14th.

    Yes, I've got an idea: force ゴジラ AKA @manofthem to finally finish the darn game giveaway prize list. I need something to drool on. :mad:

    Need to get the pieces ready to go live with the challenge thread before I contact him.... have to give him something to link to ;)

    @Vinska- the game thread usually launches after the challenge starts so the games list is available then.... up to MoT if he opts to post a preview.

    @Norton @Vinska We usually just opened the game thread without a headsup, so that's why i haven't done anything just yet.


    So let's ask...

    Does everyone want the game list ahead of time so they can take a gander?

    Suggest we post it here only and not start the game giveaway thread until after the challenge starts...

    I was going to send out the list early myself:

    A list of awesome titles expertly curated by our own manofthem :pimp:

    Correct- best to give your rigs a 2-3day head start to let them spool up.

    I'm gonna spool up the servers and go offline for 2 days prior to the start. Should be the "mother of all dumps" when I re-connect on the day the challenge begins.
