I appreciate the thought, but I never was able to get the expired demo to work - so I'm going to pass.
There is probably someone out there that needs the system more than I do anyway.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Holy crap, I clicked on my name and i've been a member here for 6 years!! I knew i've been coming to HH for a LONG time but I didn't realize it's been that long heh. Funny thing is I remember visiting this site too, long before I became a member :-P
And I feel pretty nerdy for this but HH has been my home page for a LONG time :-x lol
Your choice 3vi1, but we are also willing to help folks get setup with a copy of the full game, which will be required to play.
Also, I think you're just having an issue with the demo expiring. If you set your system calendar date back, it should work.

Even if I got it working, I've got an old man's reflexes, one good eye, never owned any of the Quake or Unreal games (FPS + me usually equals motion sickness), and have no motherboard that would be compatible with the 4th runner-up prize. Heheh...
So, let someone else have my spot.
Thanks again for the consideration though.
awww crap we're gonna need the full game to play? lol
Sweet only, $13 @ Ebgames.
Sweet! Thanks guys! I cant wait to game it up. It was a blast lastnight with Nelsonpc21 and Dave's son. Dave's son did put us to shame a few times though....lol

We will move forward and pick yet ANOTHER winner, since 3vil is passing on this. Stay tuned!
Congrats guys! You all deserve it! I bet you amdcrankitup is going to flip.
Congratulation Guys! :D too bad 3vi1.. If u guys can't find the extra contestant hit me up :P
BTW.. Dave you should record the match, via FRAPS or something.. It would be cool to catch on the matchup later on and see everyone kicking each_other's cyber butt :P
Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing that myself!
This is going to make me sick but I going to have to forfiet my chance! I havent play games since I had brain surgery but my cognitive thinking skill and reflexes are non existant now! I dont have the ability to focus on things. Its really bad and I dont have a chance or the software much less a connection!Im sorry if I put anyone through xtra stress for me entering but I even misunderstood the contest too.Im really thankfull that I got picked but I really dont have the ability to compete so give my slot to someone else that can and deserves it! And again to Marco and Dave like I said sometimes my brain doesnt quite work like it used to and I apologize for any inconvenence.Good luck to all. mentaldisorder Thanks for the mention!
Congratz to all the winners!
@ AMD: Couldn't someone else play for you? I would, but my PC's not up to UT3. I'm sure someone else would be able to, it'd be a shame if you lost your position.

Yeah Idk how you guys wanna work it, but I would play for AMD. Anyway Congrats to you all. All deserving winners!
I'd love to upgrade my PC (Athlon XP-Mobile Based rig) with a Phenom II :D
Enter the Replacement Killers, and I LOVE IT!
3v1 and AMD: don't throw in the towel just yet. I am sure there are plenty of people here that would be willing to play in the tourney for ya and let you keep your gear that you deserve for winning. I would if I wasn't already in it. Maybe Davo could even hook the "SUBS" up with a free t shirt or flash drive or something for being good sports. Of course it's all up to the powers that be but as a contestant I am perfectly ok with this. Anyone else want to second this notion.
Edit: oh yeah, almost forgot, thanks guys. I am pysched. can't wait till the 29th. guess I should be checking the calender though and let the wifey know that she's not allowed to make any plans for me that evening.
OK! Is it hard to give away FREE STUFF to you guys or what?!?!
First, we have chosen another LUCKY WINNER: Lev_Astov !!!
Congrats brother. Get primed up and ready to play!
Also, for amdcrankitup ONLY, you may choose a "pinch-gamer" of your choice. Perhaps you could take Mentaldisorder up on his offer now and see what he can take DOWN for ya?! The bottom line is, you've been selected to win one of these prizes, so we're not going to let the small stuff get in the way for ya!
Mental, crankitup, get together and let us know intentions. Again, this is only for amdcrankitup. All others must bring their own PAIN!
Congratz Lev!!!! I'll be away on the 29th so I won't be able to see who won :(
I hope you get someone good to play for you AMD I really want you to win something worthwhile for yourself
Give 'em hell, Lev!
