Better hurry, there are only 40 days left :)
And no matter how easy you may think your entry is going to be, it'll always take longer than anticipated.

To give an example. For the past 2 evenings I'm trying to get my airplane to lift off and fly in a fairly realistic way. That's 2 evenings! I origionally thought i could do it in just one. What was I thinking :roll:

I'd suggest to award the first 6 places with prices, as there are 6 prizes available. If you win Delphi 2005 Architect you surely won't miss the Gems book while someone who happend to score 4th place will be happy to still get a little reward for all the effort he put into the entry!

Normally I would agree but with only 10 entrants if there are 6 prizes you could come in the bottom half of the entrants and still win a prize.

I dunno... I like both ideas, if you win alot of prizes when you're in the top 3 then it makes you feel great, however if you win a bit less and you can give the prizes to more places I think more people would be happy...

Basically I don't mind either way, I have faith in the game masters! 8)
