Paulie, when it comes down to the end, if you'd like another set of eyes to verify your findings on who qualifies I'd be happy to lend a hand. You'd need to send me the Official Paulieg Official Techpowerup! Official Contest Screenshot though.

Question about points: I get vastly different results from free-dc and the wcg sites. Why is there such a difference between the two? I have 2 devices, is free-dc only getting stats from 1?
free-dc points x 7 = wcg points ;)

As I said before, please eliminate me from the contest. My little "mecenary" quad will be moving along soon anyway, to help in starting another team....

My best to all of you at TPU. It's great to see how you have grown as a team in the few months I have been here. Kudos to you all, and CRUNCH ON!!

Regards,
Bob

Thanks guys. I will still be seen lurking over here from time to time.

You folks know where I live. If you need some more "cavalry" support sometime, just let me know...;)

I'm VERY pleased we got the sub-forum and about how this team has taken off. You guys rock! :rockout:

Thanks to W1zz for allowing the sub-forum to happen. And thanks again, to all, for your hospitality during the great XS refugee time...:up:

We'll be keeping an eye out for you in the XS rear view mirror. I'm not saying we'll pull over, :laugh:, but anyway I can help, just let me know.

Regards,
Bob
