    Nothing for me, the server was too busy, and I went to make a coffee in the 5 minutes near the end when people suddenly started getting through.

    I forgot all about it. I was actually considering swapping my day off (I have off tomorrow) to stay home and try.

    I went into work and just got too busy. I probably would not have gotten in at work anyway. Our proxy server bites! :(. I should have been working anyway. :)

    I also tried last year and never got through. Saved myself a bunch of time this year...

    The way I understand it is that this year they asked a series of questions on electronics. If you got an answer right you got so many points, wrong they took points off, no answer and nothing happened either way. It would be hard to do an automated program unless they asked the same questions in the same order every time and you are still going to have to go through it once anyway.
