Hi All, hope you don't mind me double-posting for this

In one of the other threads we've been discussing an online game that one of our sister companies has produced (read about it here http://www.sqlservercentral.com/forums/shwmessage.aspx?forumid=61&messageid=239913&p=1)

Anyway, because it's christmas i've decided to open up a competition for people at SQLServerCentral, details are below in the extract from a post i made on the 3rd page.

Here's a nice thought that i've just had; i propose we have a competition for people on this site (away from everything else that's going on). To enter send me a PM with your login and the email address that you used to register the game and after the new year (coz i'm off till then) i'll produce a leader board just for the entrants, with the winner getting a small prize (something internet gift voucher related, i'm open to suggestions)

I just hope i'm in the top 10, and higher than certain other people in the forum

I was a bit disappointed at the take up but what the hell, it's not like you had to do it

I'll be in touch in a couple of days to sort out the prize, or if you can't want PM me and i'll do it sooner

WOW!!! - what a nice way to start the new year - splly. since I'd forgotten all about Santa and kicking him across rooftops - I did give him a fleeting thought a couple of days ago but had too much work to "catch up" to indulge in frivolities.....

Though the sad truth is that I'm the winner not because I was the best but because there were not enough competitors, I won't let it detract from the joy of winning...

ps: Mike - I saw this movie called "Goal" on the flight back from Spain and thought of you immediately.... - have you seen it ?!?!

pps: Hope you had great hols!

You are more than welcome, and happy birthday too

If it makes you feel better you came out 192nd out of around 20,000 people, so i wouldn't be too disheartend

Thanks Mike - and 192nd out of 20,000 does make me feel better!

Went back for a last dekko at Santa and saw a top score of 1900 - tell me that that's data manipulation and not skill with the mouse...

Before we lay Santa to rest completely, could you pleeeeeeeeeeease find out what "path" Santa must traverse for the score to go over the 1000 mark...I'm dying to know and I'll never find out by trying on my own...
