    Chuckle! What a great word. One that I shall endeavour to use more often. *chuckle*

    So we will never get the fun of winning and being able to magnanimously (yikes!) pass on an entry to a deserving geek
    What do you suggest?

    Could just say once the video is live @VeryPC they do a random number generator that you guess, people who are on the thread for the first hour after the video is live can guess a number (VeryPC would need to say the range), closest gets it ?
    That way there is no advantage to people who may have Youtube blocked in their workplace

    ^^ might seem pretty lame but all my other ideas were easily ruined by people using google for answers, such as riddles etc

    Or alternatively a catchphrase style picture, so the video is uploaded and alongside the video is an image, first person to guess the meaning wins ?

    Just a few ideas ...

    Oh erm, I was just checking for vulnerabilities in our content filtering and managed to find a way to get on YouTube. Bit complicated to fix this one, will probably take me until the end of May to find a solution....

    Maybe Al and I should review this. I like the idea of some kind of catchphrase-esque picture quiz. Thanks for your suggestions @JamesBanks7

    You could always wow us with some marvellous creation for a bonus entry, eg @Gonk and his awesome theme-tunery

    Maybe @VeryPC ( Al or Will ) could let us know who is lacking on bonus entries so if someone else guesses who the winner is they can pass the bonus entry onto someone else who does not have the max amount ?

    The following people have achieved maximum entries (well done!): JamesBanks7, Witch, Sparkeh, Nephilim, mac_shinobi, LosOjos, hardtailstar, and bladedanny.

    So give your bonus entries to anyone not on that list

    Will

    *ahem* Thanks for your suggestion, who?
