I'm pretty happy anyway, I did solve it.

Very Good Svante, you should be proud. :thumbsup

I started really late cuz I didn't notice I wasn't logged on and was reading everything in GMT not -8 to that. So while I thought I was only 25 mins late to the starting gate it was really 8hours and 25 mins. Still it took me about an hour and a half and I am way older than you. :cool but techant is not my real name. I am an aunt and very techy though.

So glad you had fun and that you tried. :fun

Hurrah! I... won something. Congratulations to all those people who were faster than me, even though half of you edited your answers. That's fast, guys!

Also, that's seven participation credits, so next month even if I lose, I'm still a weiner winner.

Well, I was two minutes late and I hastily doublechecked my work. Removing those, I don't think I would have improved my place anyway.

You say you're a weiner with a stripe of pepper on it? Yum.

Sorry.

You do know what hubris is, right?

Coppro, I got your e-mail, and then replied to it. But the mail server at canada.com bounced the message back to me undelivered. It said: (asterisks are where I censored)

<n******5@canada.com>:
216.152.192.202 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 Command RCPT User <n******5@canada.com> not OK
Giving up on 216.152.192.202.


Anyhow, what you suggested for the prize is fine. So don't worry about the above except maybe if the problem affects other things, you might want to look into it.

-Erik

Well done, coppro! And Doom and Mattcrampy, and everyone with the amazing ability to type in a solution without making a hash of it. I just can't do that sort of thing.
I'm pretty pleased about the the whole thing. Thanks to Erik's very generous consolation prize, I did better than I was hoping for. Thank you very much, Erik. :)

Chalks is sad!

He got up at 1am to participate in contest 2. Guess what Chalks did... He got up on the 21st, instead of the 20th. He was thinking, oh it's 1am on the 20th, but it was actually the 21st. He needs to review how the clock works, because he has obviously forgotten.

Not only that, but because my siblings (who are homeschooled, just as I was) have not been doing their homework. You may ask, "What does that have to do with anything?" Well, it means that my parents got all annoyed, so they banned everyone from the computer. Apparently, if the computer is not on, more homework will get done. Of course the ban applies to me as well because... "I haven't kept my laundry going"?

I *really* need to move out soon.

soon

I can't remember--did I already award rank points to people? Could somebody who was due to win points tell me if they got a PM saying that I awarded them?

My latest contest related PM is from Limited Resources contest, so it seems that the points are still unawarded.

As an additional proof, at least one of the rookies is still at 10 rank points. (Al W)

My notification says I received 10 rank points, which is odd because I think I've actually got the 25.

That's not the rookie bonus. It's the participation bonus described in this quote:

I'm assuming rookies got 20 rank points this time.
