Helluva idea...It's worth a try...I think this will generate some 

I'm all for 48 hour contests, but having a 24 hour "class" will spark 
some competitive interest from those who can't, for whatever reason, 
endure the whole two days without sleep, or have work committments 
during the weekend, or whatever...Also adds an element of strategy, 
choosing when to operate and when to sleep...May even make the dreaded 
Sunday afternoon doldrums a little more active...

Add me to the "helpers" list Pete, if you need any...
