RC2018/04 -- judging completed...

Greetings RetroChallenge fans! Some of you will be pleased to know that I have finally completed my review of the RC2018/04 projects. I have put my comments in red on the Entrants List. Please do have a look -- competitors, please review my comments for fairness and accuracy, and feel free to send me any rebuttal comments that you would like to have on the record.

I will contemplate prizes for a few days, as I collect any rebuttal statements. Don't worry, no prize of any meaningful value is likely to be awarded... :-)

Late Again

Once again I find myself in the position of apologizing for my late review of the projects. Real life can be a bit unpredictable as to when it places its requirements upon one's time, but it is starting to feel like the current RetroChallenge schedule is aligning too closely with external forces placing predictable demands on my time and attention. The "day job" can be bad enough, but CoCoFEST! and Tandy Assembly are now annual events demanding my attention in April and October.

I liked the old January and July RetroChallenge scheduling, but others had problems at those times as well. I wonder if March and September might be worth a try instead?

RC2018/04 -- pencils down!

OK! It is well past midnight GMT, and probably everywhere by now. It's time to relax, to pour a cold one, to polish your blog if it still needs it, and to reintroduce yourself to your family. You can start brainstorming for your RC2018/10 project, but its still to early to start work on that...

I will start reviewing final submissions soon. If you still need a little time to finish your blog, then please let me know and I'll try to accommodate you. Also, if you moved your blog or I otherwise don't have your blog URL on the entrants list then please update me with that information as soon as possible. If I can't find your blog, then I will have to disqualify your entry -- sorry!

Great Work...Thanks!

Otherwise, thanks to our competitors for another great month of competition! I'll be back shortly to announce the final results...
