Quote:later today i will boot the machine up and i will ping, to win this box, you have to tell me from the moment i press the ON button to when i can open a cmd prompt (or cli) and type ping and get a ping reply from, how long will it take on this box ? for example:- i guess 3 minutes 45 seconds.  

Now that's cool isnt it, well, what if i forget to plug in the ethernet cable ? that could take a few extra minutes ? either way, i'll time it and as soon as I get a PING reply from, that'll be my END time and i'll subtract the start time from that to get the result
