It was great reading your first hand impressions and now that you've got the competition experience under your belt; I know you're going to clean all their clocks next year.

thanks guys and i am glad you noticed the canadian flag without throwing it in everyone's face. it real helped identify myself as all the "journalists" there knew i was the canadian guy right away. and despite the typo, it is true, i really am a cap whore...i've got more than i can list.

Great play-by-play 3oh6. Pity your first CPU wouldn't play nice, but I suppose that's the luck of the draw in this kind of competition.

Looking forward to seeing you back at it next year!!!

here are some more pics taken from a good friend and OCX teammate BrianY. he was competing but with a mixup in e-mails, wasn't on the official roster. he actually helped me almost win the whole thing at the end after his system all but blew up.
