Couple of questions on challenge

Now the day drawing closer, my palms are starting to sweat, my feet are itching and camera is starting to talk to me ....... but apart from that I`m feeling fine apart from 2 things I`d like to know.

1) I saw somewhere in one of the threads that there was a possibility that your site might be ready to host the entrys for DV3, is this going to be so or do we host ourselves and you link to our own websites.

2) Also, looking at previous entrys to this thread there quite a few links to the entrys for DV2, is it adviseable to do this, seeing at it will increase our bandwith usage and the judges might not get a look in if bandwidth is exceeded and you (the judges) get there after everyone else. Thought I`d mention it especially as some of us may have restrictive bandwidth usage.

Dylan does not post the links to the movies until AFTER the judging has been
done. This to ensure the judges indeed can download the movies on bandwidth
limited sites. So there should be no worries there!

Rob said it. That's our way of making sure everyone gets judged fairly and on time.

To answer question #1, no there is no video hosting set up for DVC3. I was hoping to do it, but haven't found the time. I'm still reluctant to offer hosting as it gets into a whole other set of potential problems.
