If it turns out that no one has submitted an error-free solution, will you extend the contest or will you award the prize to the submission that is deemed closest to correct?

Dear Tim Edwards

These thoughts are understandable - but nothing certain yet. Things should become clearer after the closing date and time

Well, it's now two days since the closing date. Unless you had a sudden surge of late entries, I would have thought that by now you would be in a position to make some form of announcement.
