Does 2+5DRL still count as 7DRL?

My 7DRL 2013 appearance was being frequently disturbed by my other arrangements and ended up badly. This year I planned my 7DRL break better – or so I hoped – until I was summoned to court, taking place 5 hours by car from where I live, in the morning, in the middle of 7DRL 2014 week. I will need to get up very early, spend much time driving, cope with the court performance, and end up knocked-out by exhaustion. I will for sure lose one day of 7DRL challenge time.

So I thought: if I spent 2 days on the challenge, then take a break for 1 day, and then continue for 5 more days, would it be considered much of a cheating? Or should I stop trying to be clever, accept one lost day, and try to catch up it in the remaining six? What do you think? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I’ve never had more than 4 days during the challenge to do it before… Like many people you should use whatever time you can/need during the 168 hour period but you don’t actually need to program/develop for the entire 168 hours.

    You are also not allowed to extend the time for time lost due to sleeping, eating, or making love.
