[QUOTE=teeheeV2;24358722]I think that you should team up with someone else and give a later deadline in the US/UK Winter Holidays. Most of the forum comes from there, and more than likely the Southern Hemisphere would be in Summer Holidays. This would allow for some long thought out designs, which is what you are looking for, and would allow more competition. I would pitch in, but I want to enter. [editline]07:36PM[/editline] Would FP be okay with me chipping in to a larger prize over a long period and entering, aslong as I prove i don't vote for myself?[/QUOTE] Why make the prize larger? Its already big enough at the most make them into second and third prizes.
Thats a good Idea. If OP doesn't want to, then I will make my own thread at some late date. With different rules though. I'm thinking that the Flash one will win this competition.

All you gotta do is get creative and you'll have a shot at the prize.
[QUOTE=MTMod;24406582]All you gotta do is get creative and you'll have a shot at the prize.[/QUOTE] Dude I made a dildo flash drive and a pacman graphics card flash drive. You can't tell me that, thats not creative.
Speaking generally to everyone. Have you entered your mods officially?

Can I just use my USB cable?
[QUOTE=Samuelgames;24423300]Can I just use my USB cable?[/QUOTE] Considering a bluetooth adapter was rejected, you can only use USB storage devices.
Does a USB powered external hard drive count?
I think it's been thoroughly explained that the mod must be on a USB thumb/flash/stick drive.

[QUOTE=heavy artillery;24432099]:google:[/QUOTE] I don't plan on working on it either.
Is anyone else planning on entering?
Depends on what happens this weekend. I want to do something, but it may not be possible
[QUOTE=MTMod;24510019]Is anyone else planning on entering?[/QUOTE] I did have an idea for a Vuvuzela Flash Drive with a speaker, but I don't own a soldering iron, so that's a no-go. :(
Should ask, how hard is it to solder and make things like the Flash Drive

[QUOTE=iHax;24511317] *SharkDrive* [/QUOTE] Love it.
[QUOTE=iHax;24511317]*Fucking shark*[/QUOTE] Pure awesomeness.
So what happened to the wall that the laser was pointed at?
Nothing, it only makes things warm when infinity focused. When focused to a point, it can burn all sorts of things.
iHax has my vote SharkDrive is Awesome(with a capital A) Also if you dont wi this competition then im sure Dr evil will buy this of you
