First sponsorship prize : 120 € shared

Sponsor : n_n from IRC
e-mail : IRC, no email

Description :
An encouragement prize for some MSX guys on IRC. Whoever from the list underneath joins MSXdev’10 and gets a score of at least 40% by the jury (or less than 40% and IMO underrated), will each get a share of €120. How the €120 is divided is up to n_n and will be decided at the contest conclusion, eg. if two people join and one gets 70% while the other gets 45%, the higher placed entry will get a bigger share. The only thing certain for now is that if only one person joins, he will get €120. If noone joins, noone gets the money.

The list :
– discomeats
– FiXato
– Quibus as Allosoft
– TNI with BiFiMSX as main developer
