Edzell a drag strip!? Nooooo. I remember going to Aberdeen. Coming down from the hills into the city was very beautiful, day and night.

Woo we reached 73.47 TFLOPS over night, congratulations to BOINC.Italy for holding the second spot. With almost 28 hours to go I'm sure we'll crack 75 . Scotland sounds amazing, my girlfriend and I will be visiting later this year, I can't wait.

er... someone mention chocolate chili pizza with anchovies on top ? ... Yippee! Or was it moon pie ? By the way Macaroni penguins might be Italian but they are not pink - personally, I'm more of a tropical penguin: http://www.eclectech.co.uk/b3ta/tropicalpenguin.jpg

only 1 hr to go, looks like we have held 10th :-) See you all on the 1st march for the next challenge
