Now, that's the stuff, Per.

I don't have any Cognac handy, but I'll join you with a bottle Moose Drool beer from Jackson, Wyoming.

Nice Steve, Iīm finished uploading. Think I need one more Cocnac before bedtime :-)

In Norway we say - one Cocnac in every leg, so this must be three for me... ...sorry Cat, this was a bit nasty ;-)

Thanks Per for that one. Personally I never understood why I couldn't ever handle more than two glasses of cognac... now I finally know. Just know that we are THRILLED to have you back with us after such a long time!

Keep at it Mike! Still lots of time!

Looking forward to everyone's entry! I'm sensing some really good ones in the making.

Cat

Iíve always interpreted the deadline like Per Johan did- midnight at the International Dateline. I was just joking about the awkward way the rule is worded.

Well, I managed to finish a video! Itís not the one I would have wanted to make (five months after paying for it Iím still waiting for a part backordered by the manufacturer). Itís not the one I started out to do. (That one was on the scale of human perception and would have featured shots of the same organism from ten kilometers to one one-hundredth of a millimeter and been titled ďTen Orders of MagnitudeĒ. I was unable to get all the shots for it after some unexpected work came my way.) Still, itís a finished video and now uploaded before deadline. I didnít break Billís fifteen hour record (nor my camera and I sure hope Billís is going to be OK) but, because I rushed it, I made more than a few mistakes. It should be titled ďOne Day WonderĒ- but it isnít! After rendering eleven times I finally got a file that plays (it doesnít look so good in places) but is 60.5 Mb. I know others have gotten permission for being a fraction of a megabyte over in the past, so Iím hoping Cat will allow it. If I had more time Iím sure I could have eventually gotten a file below 60 Mb that actually played without error. Oh, wellÖ

The title is in Greek, but the uploader kept crashing with Greek characters in the file name. I anglicized the file name and it went right up. What a bore.

P.S. Someone keep reminding me to never again write a tongue-twister for voice over.

Hello everyone...
I got a film together and uploaded last night... It become 61 mb, but the computer I was editigt on was so slow that it took nerly 1 hour to export the 3 min film. And after 6 miss exportings I was out of time and energy. I hope it's ok...
Well, I'm happy that I finished... Haven't finish an entry in a long time... This time not that much UW, but some shot.

Cheers!

I always interpreted the rule to mean: you look at the clock in your house, wherever you are in the world, and when it reads midnight, that is your deadline.

it's all honor code anyway, because the contest coordinator wakes up, drinks a little coffee, ponders the day, checks email, looks to see if Kevin has checked the uploads, yawns, feeds the dog, and then looks at the number of finishers...if you slip it in before all that happens, you are the only one who will ever know.

Meryem & Cat, I stand corrected, sorry for misleading the community! Happy that I managed to get my entry uploaded, even if it was + 2 hours of deadline (local time)

in theory, Per, I suppose your interpretation is the correct one...in practice, I suppose the practical deadline is the morning after midnight, Mountain Standard Time, since Cat and I both live in the same time zone...and I have a dog to feed and she has goats...

...the fun part of coordinating a contest with such a far reach is knowing that we are doing things at radically different times of the day and night and still have it all happen in one place. right here...

Make that.....

WAY in the morning after the deadline (MST). I not only have goats, but a cat, donkeys, MANY chickens, ducks, geese and a Guinea fowl.... not to mention any one that needs special attention at the moment (right now it's two chickens: Nikki and Cloe). You would think my husband would be in here somewhere as well, but alas, he is up and out way before the sun rises, always starting my day by handing me a cup of coffee before he heads out before I can even crack and eye.

So when Meryem said you were in good hands...
