    Just read the Terms & Conditions "Contest Rules" but I can't find a clause saying that you must be in the USA... So is this compo open to non-US residents?!

    and this bit on on section 9 sort of makes out that it will be USA only but it DOES NOT say anything on world wide entries:)

The second prize winner will receive a triple screen X-Top desktop display w/ 19" SlimLine LCDs (ARV: $5,000). The third prize winner will receive an Alienware DHs5 media center PC (ARV: $2,500).

    Yes, it seems as though its US only, but I don't see why we could not apply? It says appropriate taxes, as in the tax of your state (which for me would be UK).

    i like the new logo.
    I'm not sure if i should continue making my video.
    My camera isn't very good quality.

    edit:
    and no, that is not me in the video. ;)
    if it was, i would be the coolest 11 year old on the block.

    I'm thinking of entering. As i've only ever done amateur home stuff, i too think it'll be a good learning curve.
