    Ok, in other contests, e.g. hero contests, the first price wins 40-45 points and this thing has a maximum of 35 points? You really need to get this to 50 points.

    And 5 days to force you Palaslayer to come with a good idea. ^^

    By the way, a judge can't join the contest so if you feel like testing your new tablet for the contest... ;)
