Hi all,

Another BUMP...!

Just over 3 days to go (until midnight on CIN night) to register your guesses to the "End of Year" sweepstake...!

C'mon people....wouldn't you just love to be cuddled up with a nice big cheese (and more perhaps?) sometime in early January 2008, coz you guessed the number nearest to the total team credit as at year end 2007.

Get those brains working, make some guesses and please make a donation to CIN....!

regards

Tim

Hi all,

OK, so I'm going to try and SAVE you all loads money now.

I'm NOT asking you to bid for Led Zeppelin tickets - so I've already saved you  £83,000 !!!

And I'm NOT asking you to bid for a fun day at the next British Grand Prix - so that's another £100,00 you've saved...

And as for the Aled Jones/Katie Melua "double act"  :shock: ...well, in your dreams people, so that's saved you another £250,000....

That means you've now saved over £433,000.....

So, time for you to dive into your wallet or purse and dig out a few coins of the realm, to the value of 50p per guess....

You've got until the witching hour tomorrow night.......


regards

Tim

HDMI Cable? Hmm - If I won I suppose I'll have to get a HDTV to go with it. This could get expensive! I almost hope I don't win!

Ah well - another £3 to the fund...

Thanks Mike,

Well, you could always just wear the sweatshirt and cap... and then use the cable for some other purpose....might be useful for towing your car...? Or use it to lash down your tent in a storm....? Or maybe tieing up some Chrissy pressies ????

In fact, the list is endless....so I'll stop now...!

Tim

Hi Micky

Thanks for that....

...Mind you, do you really think anyone getting a nice shiny new quad core  for Xmas is going to have it set up and crunching in time to be able to have a big influence on the total credits ??
