A potato made of solid gold would weigh a lot and cost a small fortune to post.

You'd get a TF2 hat in return.

I don't think you understood what I meant.

If we fill the bar for Killing Floor, it should cut the timer down by a lot due to Killing Floor being "worth more" than all the other games due to being the best seller. If you compare the bars for each game, you'll see that Killing Floor's bar hasn't filled much for the amount of CPU power it has. It takes more effort to fill the bar for Killing Floor than all the other games.

I don't quite get what you mean by a bonus for filling all the games. When we fill all the games, we get Portal 2. Instantly. If we don't fill all the games, we just get Portal 2 a little earlier.

I thought this might have been able to be completed, but don't think so now. I figured someone would have maybe found a trick or clue somewhere to it to speed up the process.

It almost seems like it was impossible from the start and either way, the game will get released on release day. For some reason I have a feeling the best we could have gotten was a midnight release.

I've been following the counter since it started and a day after it was already clear Portal 2 would only get released on the scheduled day... I checked it for the last time (until now) twelve hours ago, and the release date would be at 10 a.m. GMT, 19 April - which is the release day anyway.

Now, twelve hours later, the release time is 9:30 a.m. GMT, 19 April. In twelve hours of gaming worldwide the community gained 30 minutes. It would take a HUGE effort to release it earlier than the release date.

The amount of potatoes is going down? Does anyone have any ideas of what the auxiliary power is for and how we can enable it?
