Google puzzle championship

Hey everyone, you like puzzles, right? Of course you do.

Then go register for the 2008 Google Puzzle Championship. It is on Saturday June 14, 1 PM EST EDT. You must register before June 12.

Answers are submitted online. You have no obligation to participate if you register. You are given 2 1/2 hours, but you're not expected to complete the whole thing in that time. Typical puzzles include Sudoku variants and other "grid" puzzles, but there are also a bunch of grab-bag puzzles, like a "spot the difference" puzzle. You can try the practice test if you want a better idea of what's on it.

I have participated in this competition for a few years now. I never win, of course, but my results have slowly improved. My tips: print out the puzzles, and use colored pencils. I'll take questions if anyone is curious about anything. Tell me if you intend to participate. I want to know if anyone is interested, or if I should just never bring it up again.
