    I should be as well- have an upload issue on 2 rigs that should be cleared up by the start time.

    About 2 hours to go before start time and there are 26 Teams signed up! :toast:

    Thanks in advance to all of our crunchers for their assistance!!! :respect:

    3570K and 2400 have a 3 day min buffer and 6 day max work buffer, been like that for the last week. totally g2g on this challenge. Currently i run one rig at all times, i just switch from pc to pc and start as needed, but bedtime both rigs crunch for about 7 hours each :D

    It's getting crunchy in here. Hotter than I'd like, but acceptable for now. I believe I'm on a generic kernel which I hope to remedy soon. Kind of a rocky start, but we're off!

    I suppose it is not possible to use a US key outside the US? By my knowledge MS likes to limit the amount of keymaps supported so localisation may be an issue. I don't know whether MS cares about "exporting" the keys, though, speaking in terms of legality.

    I'm thinking we can draw the Win 7 keys as a side drawing when we do the hardware drawing.

    Does that sound OK?

    Great to see everyone so ready and up to spool, with even more prizes :D

    Just another thought: there are 4 codes for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. But considering the issues that dozer recently had with his giveaway, I think we need to limit that game to US residents, only because the codes seem to be region locked, with users outside the US being unable to activate the code.

    sounds great, maybe ppl that need the key can submit their names for a separate list?
