    Most likely- Thanks for the input :)

    theonedub and I are working on several areas of the giveaway system to improve upon it. I believe everyone will see the benefits of what we are planning.

    stay tuned...... and Crunch on!

    "Grand prize only" :banghead: Something to add as an option for next time :eek:

    *** EDIT- since I can't change the poll- Choose All prizes AND Not entering to enter for Grand Prize only... We'll know what that means ;) ***

    that's great!! thanks to all contributors:respect:


    Norton, you might want to mention 'Pro' after 'Win 7' in the prize list, as the key given is the Professional version..


    great start team! let's keep it up!

    ---

    on a side note, thank you for the opportunity team, but I am not entering for any prizes, as I can only dream/wish about celebrating Mother's day from this year.

    Am I correct when I state that the Steam keys are part of the option "all EU available prices"?

    The Steam games will be given away in a separate thread by Manofthem. When that thread opens you will have the opportunity to put in your preferences in a similar fashion to how this is setup. Manofthem is working on it :) Traditionally the game giveaway is done mid challenge and the hardware is done at the end of the challenge- spreads out the winning :laugh:

    We need a little more berth for 1st place. Guy's I'm bringing the 4P-6176 server online tonight. I would appreciate it if you could bring some extra GPU's online for F@H to offset the 600K PPD that we will be losing by switching the server over.

    I'll bring my 7850 online, but that won't help THAT much.

    Added my fx4100 to crunching. At least I broke the min for prizes :roll:

    Edit- I'd also like to add to the prizes if that's ok. Lots of little things from previous Humble Bundles, but great for people who don't have them. :)

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Steam Key
    2x Dungeon Defenders + All DLC Steam key
    Crayon Physics Deluxe Steam Key
    Splice Steam Key
    Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Steam Key
    Cogs Steam Key
    Swords & Soldiers HD Steam Key
    Zen Bound 2 Steam Key
    Avadon: The Black Fortress Steam Key
    World of Goo, Anomaly, Osmos, and EDGE Steam Key (all in one)

    I could use the H60. I'll enter the hardware drawing but if I get some big stuff (like the cases) please give it to another participant.

    So the game giveaway will be hosted separatedly?
