Any chance of an extension for the Dead Computer Contest? Answered

The reason I ask, and perhaps I'm being selfish, is that I'm waiting for some PCBs to arrive from a board house in China.  Normally they would have arrived by now, but the Chinese New Year delayed all of the shipping times!

No problem if it can't be done, and I wouldn't expect an extension just for me, but I thought I'd ask anyway.  I *might* be able to finish by the deadline anyway...

.  I guess there's nothing wrong with your "The worst they can do is say no" attitude, but I don't think it would be fair to the other contestants - especially those that have already entered - to extend the deadline.
.  But that's just my opinion. I don't speak for Robot.

I can ALWAYS use an extension (of time, that is) but that is because of my lack of time to get anything actually done (or is it my difficulty in "finishing" projects?  ;-)

I've no problem finishing things, it's finding time to do so.  Two kids plus a job and an ongoing basement renovation tend to suck up most of my free time.  *sigh*

Fair enough!  And yeah, I can definitely see that it may not be considered fair.  If that's the case, leave it as is and forget I said anything.  ;)

They HAVE done extensions in the past, but normally when not many have entered....so more might be able too.
