I know it's nothing to do with my processor - I just have a grudge against it, so if anything at all goes wrong/doesn't work with my computer - it's the cheap Celeron's fault!
It worked now, after using Firefox. I tried clearning the cache, didn't help. Oh well, Firefox is prettier than IE.

THE GREEN BALLS! I've only just noticed they are gone now that you mention it. I was quite looking forward to having more than 1 green ball.

Oh well

Re: Win A New Jem7vwh - Forum Member Only Raffle STARTS FEB 7 @ 8pm

eligibility of moderators & vendors: I have concluded since they all began as forum members and many have contributed to the forum over the years, they are eligible to participate in the raffle EXCEPT the "guitar dealer/reseller vendors" who are comprised of Rich, Matt and Eric. In addition myself and kennydoe are not eligible... glen

Too tempting not to enter....so I did!
Excellent idea and can't wait to see who the lucky duck is!

Time to go light a candle, cross my fingers and toss a coin into the wishing well.

awww crap. I already bought half the numbers!

On a serious note, we've crossed the $1000 threshold

My $0.02,
Seeing as how the numbers will be posted before the drawing, and the drawing is an event that everyone can watch/check, it wouldn't bother me at all for you and Kenny to be able to enter, especially considering you guys are doing all the work.

I know it is customary for "sponsors" and "the house" not to be able to enter contests, but this is pretty much a small community here, and I believe you guys are above cheating, not to mention it would be really hard to do so in this format anyway.

Just my opinion,

Roger

From number theory itself, if you have an 8 digit number, you have

10^8 or 100,000,000 combinations.

125 people get 8 numbers each... so from 000 to 999 is 1000 numbers.

Not an 8 digit number - Jemsite isn't THAT big. (Yet)

When all 125 tickets have been sold. It could be tomorrow or two weeks from now. Who knows? But, it looks like they are closed to 50% gone.

your $20 entry fee buys you eight numbers between 000&999. The numbers are all relative to eachother by 125. e.g. the person who has #000 also has 125, 250, 375, etc.

Everybody's numbers will be posted when all the entries are in.
This is a recording.

PS: Thanks for your trust rgr, and you guys could definitely trust me not to cheat. However, I'm not really interested. I have more guitars than i know what to do with at this point. (a concept a lot of you seem to be baffled by )
