    I would say that CEP probably isn't the best project to gauge this with--I've noticed runtimes for it are highly erratic.

    I've been moving things around in the apartment so I could only keep two rigs working for the challenge (plus the office machines). The cruncher I exchanged for the 6950 should arrive on Monday (more shuffling). If I win the H60 I could throw another rig in there *wink* *wink* :p

    Also, count me in for that 7970 :peace: Thanks for being so awesome, the54thvoid :respect:

    The last one was 28 days so this was relatively short by comparison ;)

    We'll likely setup another large Challenge when the cooler weather starts to return and I'm thinking that we go somewhere in the middle then..... 15-20 days seems like a good range IMHO

    in what order are you guys drawing the prizes? and does winning in the hardware category exclude you from being able to be drawn for the 2 Operating System prizes?

    Will need to post the final details on the drawings a little later but here's the draft summary:

    - Software (the OS prizes)
    - Hardware (smaller prizes and the rig)
    - LCS 7970

    Software win won't exclude you from hardware drawing and hardware/software drawings won't exclude you from LCS 7970 drawing (due to the 7970 being a special add on)

    Count Down (url now shortened with google url shorter)

    ^^ found a little online countdown maker, hope its right for all of your timezones as it just counts down from server time regardless where you are

    just had fun looking up the timezones and went around here: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/
