beside NANY finalization (end of Jan.?).
I know that we're being a little less strict this year, but I think that the end of Jan is going way too far!
Whoa! Now hold on thar, Pardner... Ima thinkin' you dun got th' horse a'fore th' cart!?
All kidding aside, Please note my NANY is already complete (as far as submission is concerned). See "Last Edit" footer on my NANY page...

You can of course keep developing your application unrestricted at any time after NANY completes (which it has) -- In fact we'd love it if you did! But for NANY we have to draw the line under the Event at some stage. All the screencasts and evaluations will be done on the version present on New Years Day:
I believe I have the ability to replace the existing *.rar with the new improved version as required; in fact, I believe that is encouraged.
FYI - My comment, "... beside end of Jan.?" was based on the following...
I suppose we should say that while tonight is the deadline to get your NANY submission(s) posted and public, because it will take us a week or two to prepare the final page...
Knowing how these things can go, the " end of Jan.?" is not far fetched as a possible time frame to upgrade "VeggieSquares" for public prime time. You and I both know if things don't go so well as planned the, "...week or two to prepare the final page..." could easily turn into "two or three" or even "three or four," hence my supposition I *might* have until the, "... end of Jan.?" as a possible time opportunity. I do realize my app will be judged by DC on what was uploaded at the deadline. No problem here. Actually, given what I achieved after 40% - 60% of my work was blown away only three days from the deadline, I'm quite happy with what I did submit, even as a beta.
Frankly, I never had any delusions I would win anything, save the coveted Cody Mug! My interest has always been using the DC publicity as a great platform to get the word out on how important gardening really is and to provide a simple tool that would eliminate the complication and drudgery normally associated with gardening by the masses. I wanted to make gardening simple and fun! I think I have achieved that goal.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have get out my trusty "Acme1
Code Polisher" and get to work!1
- For our non-U.S.A. readers... the "Acme" label was a fictitious company used in the animated cartoons of "Bugs Bunny," "Wile E. Coyote" and others.
