Thanks for the tournament, it was fun. Bobbe's ping made it even more exciting. Don't forget you promised him to specifically mention it.

Also, I don't know whether that's a common practice, but the way the pairs were arranged for the first round sounded like a lot of chaos (random people could come to the server and replace the ones who did not show up). I can't offer a better solution on the spot though. Simply getting auto-wins for no-shows is less fun in a way, but perhaps more fair in a way as well.
