You get a general idea of what you want to do, I'll order them. If it falls through, no big deal. They make great Xmas gifts.

Dude you been doing it all for a long time. Take the help when you can get it.

If you get international entries, I think I might know someone in the postal business who can take care of the shipping of the drives too. ;)

Are you reading my mind? That was going to be my next discussion, how to handle international contestants.

You tell me who and I'll take care of everything. I do a lot of international mailing as this is an international seaport so I know the customs forms and such. It's really no big deal so if you want to start setting things up, I can work this end and ready things.

That sounds pretty good. Now one thing I have seen happen in pick-up contests like this is there needs to be some specific rules in place before things get going. You oughta line out a specific set of criteria as to what you are looking for and what will and will-not work. Otherwise you're going to get 15 box maps with two monsters each and people asking for the freebies.

Just let me know what kind of time table you set in place and I'll get with tigerdirect or newegg.

You know what else I just thought about would probably be something a mapper would like, a tablet. You know, where they can use a digital pin to draw on a tablet, and it'll reflect what they draw on the computer?
