I&amp;amp;#039;ve had 5 replies for the contest, so it &lt;i&gt;is&lt;/i&gt; going to happen. So, some details:&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;b&gt;When the contest will start:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
I plan on starting the contest on Sunday in my time zone. If you want to be the first to the starting line, I suggest subscribing so you&amp;amp;#039;ll know when I make the post.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;b&gt;How the game will work:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
I will post an IP on the day of the contest. On that machine will be a file in the FTP section with a riddle/puzzle. The solution to that riddle/puzzle will reveal the next machine. The IP&amp;amp;#039;s of the machines will not be changed until the contest is over.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;b&gt;Rules:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
The only rule is not to delete or alter the FTP file. I know it&amp;amp;#039;s easy to do and you&amp;amp;#039;ll probably buy yourself some time if you do. But I cannot be checking on each of these machines all day to make sure everything is still in place. So by the honor rule, please do not delete the clues. If you do find that the clues have been deleted, send me PM.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
Also, I&amp;amp;#039;d &lt;i&gt;really&lt;/i&gt; appreciate it if you guys didn&amp;amp;#039;t load these machines with viruses, but I&amp;amp;#039;m willing to take that risk.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;b&gt;Prizes:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
On the last machine, there will be some free software, including a golden firewall. That&amp;amp;#039;s for whoever gets to that machine first. But I would like to post a list of everyone who made it to the end of the maze to give credit to all competitors. So when you reach the end, there will be a file in the FTP section with the password. PM me the password, and I&amp;amp;#039;ll use the time stamp on it to determine what place you came in.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
--&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
I hope this will be fun for everyone involved and will add another challenge to TSR.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&lt;br /&gt;<br />
P.S. &lt;i&gt;Please&lt;/i&gt; respect the rules. I&amp;amp;#039;m spending ~10k on hosting this event, and if everyone has fun and respects the rules, I&amp;amp;#039;ll be perfectly willing to spend just as much (if not more) to do this again.
