    Sorry about the delay in results guys, we've had a few workshop problems meaning the testing servers haven't been able to be set up quite as quickly as we would have liked.

    Results will be out tomorrow, I promise :)

    Oh...

    My heart rate is increased ^_^
    Although I'm not a participant lol
