    I am sad with you. I was getting paranoid that would happen to me too (thunderstorms going on right now for me). I have trust that you can do it!


    On a different note, I got my submission in. **scrubbed**

    I supposed so. Done, then.

    It was an exciting build. I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with.

    So, basically I have a whole new computer now. However, since I needed a new computer anyways, I decided to build me a GOOD one.

    AM3+ motherboard with 1866 MHz DDR3 SDRAM dual-channel with four RAM slots for a total of 32 GB maximum capacity for RAM (currently 8 GB installed as a pair of 4 GB's dual-channeled), 8 core 3.5 MHz processor. Did get a GTX 610 card to go with it. Also picked up an Antec 850 Pro Gamer power supply to prevent any further back-surging into motherboards in the future.

    So I went from dual-core proc with DDR2 SDRAM and an old 512 MB GPU to... that. A significant upgrade. And it only set me back about $500, because I knew how to buy the actual parts. Of course, since I run Linux, I didn't need to buy a new copy of my OS or any software.

    I should just leave for 2 days. I keep thinking I've missed something and go back over my post I sent to the chairman, seeing (REDACTED), thinking it was wrong, then realizing because of (REDACTED), it wasn't.

    Honestly i can't wait till Monday. I'm not anticipating that my [Redacted] Corrupt Avenger is going to do particularly well, but I'd like to post it to the board for some PEACH so i can do better on my next attempt.

    Thanks Kuul. I was more looking at a technical standpoint for the entry. As far as my build goes i'm pretty sure I have everything. And yeah i guess beginner's luck is a thing, but I know i tend to have issues with tying all my wonderful little ideas into a solid mechanic lol

    Well.

    I've been reading some past contests, and it seems that the build I was about to submit is oddly similar to the winner of a past competition. Shame, that.

    I'll refrain from participating this round, and I might judge.

    Well there goes that. Guess I'm not entering. I'll keep up in the contest though, see what goes on. I'm very sad to not have this done, but I don't think I'll have enough time to have it in before tomorrow. So I wish you all the best of luck!

    Seems this SI is bringing bad luck. My build just fell apart due to mistake I overlooked until now. And I thought I was doing so well with [Redacted]. Maybe I'll be able to salvage something to still enter, but I doubt it.

    thanks I like that too

    Although the main ingredient is slightly bland I think it is not bad. I mean we need to distill its blandness, go to the core of it and bring the tasty tasty tasty taste out to the surface and then build on it.

    I meant to spend the day finishing up two builds today. But at 5:30 am (Central time), I became an uncle for the third time! (Whoo-hoo!) So, I'm off to the hospital. I finished (ha!) one of the builds up quickly and sent it in.
    Good luck to everyone.
