magman's 25,000 tiffy competition I am now within shooting distance of attaining another one of my major goals for SETI I - my 25,000 WU tiffy. To celebrate this occasion and to give those of us without races something to keep our SETI interest a bit higher, I though it would be nice to have a little competition to see if you can guess the date and time that I actually reach the 25,000 WU mark. A competition is useless without a prize. Given that I recently won a nice couple of crunchers from that nice Mr Jaydeee007, a suitable prize would be to turn those crunchers over to the winner for a tiffy's worth of WU's. In other words, the winner of my little competition would have exclusive use of this brace of crunchers for the production of 100 WU's, about 9-10 days worth of production from these machines. I also think it's worth setting a few rules, as follows: As with Jaydee's comp, I will set up another thread were guesses can be entered. The Guesses thread will be opened from noon tomorrow. All guesses have to be entered by Midnight on 5th February 2003. All guesses must be entered in the Guesses thread to be valid. Guesses should be to the nearest minute. Only members of the OcUK SETI team need apply. Only one guess per forum member. There can be no duplicate guesses, the first poster with a particular guess, owns that guess exclusively. No other comments in the Guesses thread please, if you need to ask a question, pop into this thread instead. My decision as to the winner is final, though I will be fair in this, no favouritism - I promise. The winner will be guesses the nearest time (either before or after) to the 25,000th WU being submitted to Berkeley. In the event of the 25,000th WU being submitted precisely between two guesses, the winner will be the forum member who posted their guess first. The prize is transferable, so you can donate it to another OcUK SETI Team member if you so wish. The prize is to be claimed within 1 month of the winner being announced. The winner can't use the prize against me in any races (this is me getting a bit paranoid now!). [/list=1] Once the guesses time limit has expired, I will put my queue on auto-transmit (I'm stashing at the moment to make it a bit more interesting). I will also post a summary of all of the guesses from time to time over the next 5 days in this thread so you can see who has guessed what. So its H'onwards and H'upwards for the good ship OcUK SETI stomper and a 25,000 WU tiffy for me.
