  1. YOU MUST use the web form that will be posted on our web site (www.thelinuxshow.com) at 6:00pm cst to submit answers.
  2. The general concept is to find answers to Linux and technology related trivia questions. It is recommended that people participate as teams, as this could be a fun thing for a LUG to do for FUN. Adult beverages are encouraged (for adults).
  3. At 6:00 pm CST on the 30th of October, we will have posted the question list and web form to our web site. Answers MUST be submitted NO LATER 1:06am cst on the 31st to qualify. So, you only have 6 hours and 66 minutes (666?) to complete the test.
  4. There are some clues listed. Additional ?Cryptic? clues will/may be given out during the contest at our IRC server and web site. Kevin or Jeff will get on IRC.thelinuxshow.com starting at 6:00pm cst on the hour every hour until midnight the 30th, so you have 6 hours to ask questions. We may or we may not answer your questions.
  5. The TLS stream server will be running and playing music. Send musical requests to staff@thelinuxshow.com
  6. Each question will have a point value associated with its answer. The most correct answers wins.
  7. BUT, TIME is a factor. The first returned forms with the most points will win.
  8. The word contest implies prizes. Prizes include:
    • $100.00 cash
