OMAGAD I NEARLY DIED.
3:16 into my project, vocals, everything, about to start a solo then my computer crashed during a save because of my UX2. Rebooted... Corrupted project file! AH!
Luckily Reaper makes backups every 10 actions. Dodged a bullet there! *wipes sweat off brow*

Happened once to me with FL Studio, but I hadn't enabled the backup feature :/

Backups have saved me so many times it's scary. Always enable the backup feature, folks!
Also, keep a backup of your PC on an external drive and update it every 3 months. You'll be happy you did one day.

OMAGAD dying again.
Just broke the main fan on my PC case like a moron (opened it while it was on... feeling stupid now). I'm buying a new one but it won't arrive before Friday. I can probably use my PC with the broken fan, it just wobbles a bit, but I don't want to overdo it. Luckily my song is 98% finished, just a few mixing tweaks to do.

*cries*

Wow, that sounds terrible...if it makes you feel more comfortable working on your project, I'll be willing to make an exception to the rules and give you (and only you) a 24-hour extension. If your fan isn't in by Saturday, we can talk about it. This contest has been tough for you, hasn't it? First the whole I'm-judging-Troisnyx-and-she's-judging-me thing and now THIS? :O

@AnalogByNature That should be fine. You have until Friday to submit it anyway, so don't worry. ;)

Hope you are getting an awesome performing case fan like a Noctua PWM or similar.

Vouch for Noctua PWM. Don't need expensive gear, a NF-A14 FLX is the quality choice.

Got this cheap one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002QVLBM2/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item
Apparently it's quiet too, and it had free postage/packaging. If I need another it's no big loss to replace this one in the future.

Cool. I made it into the Amateur group. :)

I'm working on a track right now.

As far as 'original composition' goes, does that mean I can't manipulate samples?

I think it means you need to create the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic parts of the song on your own :O

i dont think sampling would be illegal so long as you don't intend to use an well known loop/song

As far as I know, samples are completely fine. The key is to use them in a way nobody else has before. I'm sure you knew that already haha. Manipulate away! I do hope you'll use completely original elements as well though.

As I've told other users, you can use/manipulate samples as long as (like @Lockyn said), you use them in an original way AND uploading them to NG doesn't violate any copyright laws. ;)
