I wasted a guess because I left off the last 3 zeros.  Bummer!  :(

:(  If it makes you feel any better, one of my guesses has already passed.

PHEW!  Glad I wasn't the only one! 

Maybe the person that wins the 50 credits will take pity on us goobers that can't  "do math"  :)

I'm waiting to closer to the entry deadline to enter my guesses.  Figured I'd have a better shot that way.

Well, I cannot count (and I'm a bookkeeper) so I WAY overshot it. Oh well...

I took a wild guess and thought people might go on vacation hold around the holiday. 

Oh well. I didn't win the Powerball, and I probably won't win this either.

It isn't cheating when it's within the rules.  :)

I watched how many were added over a two day period and then just did the math for the remaining days.  That was as much effort as I'd put into it.  I am going to be out all Thursday and would likely forget or get the time zone wrong and miss it anyway should I try that kind of strategy.  I'd be reeeeally surprised if I won, but very happy. 

Last time I won something that was not based on merit was guessing the jelly beans in a jar at a church function.  Of course the lady who originally counted the beans admitted to having the stomach flu at the time so I ended up throwing out my prize - the jelly beans.  :D
