    my head almost exploded for not being able to see my country, the Philippines from country of origin in the application form. I was 'almost 100% sure' that one of my rigs will be chosen until I read the terms of service. I was disqualified from the start! ;)

    Your guess is as good as mine.

    so this is all the info I got.

    It's for internally classifying the status of the posts after individual review.

    For now all you need to know, black = PCs already in the episodes. And orange is for people that apply but arenot in the geo regions that are part of the contest (so they cannot be picked).

    Which doesn't make sense since I'm in the US, and I was marked orange.....

    Here's hoping they expand to Norway at some point. Komplett, Dustin, Power, MPX are all good alternatives for a partner, should they be willing. If they aren't, I guess I'll just give up all hope that I'll ever get the chance in ANY of these contests, whether it be UMPCP or giveaways.

    I think your link is broken to submit your PC to this. You click the link and it just says error you don't have permission. I did submit photos however.

    I think we are pretty similar. I have a CPU from the same first generation of quad cores! Q6600. Sigh. I definitely need an upgrade, but the link won't work to post.
