Cyber Patriot Round 2 Complete!

Well that last round came down to the wire! Never before has the team wanted a computer to download AVG so badly as they all did with only two minutes left out of the six hour competition window. Lt. Borelli, Lt. Dillow, Amn Rioux, and Ssgt Huh, under the watchful eye of their coach Lt. Slankard, managed to snag 186/300 points out of an Ubuntu, Windows Vista, And Windows 8 systems! If my slide ruler is properly calibrated, then that puts the Cyber Patriot team in the top 23rd percentile! Now the scores are still coming in from other teams and must be reviewed by Cyber Patriot, but as long as the team stays in the top 30%, then MD-089 will be moving on to the Platinum State Round!
