    Re: OSNN HP Pavillion HDX Dragon Giveaway

    dunno why i'm even gonna try. never win jack. well.... can't really say NEVER. i got a free copy of Call of Duty 4 from a ClubSLI automatic raffle (which i won probably 2 a week or two after i STOPPED playing the copy i purchased), and a free copy of Vista Ultimate that should be arriving sometime soon that i might just eBay since i'm already running Vista Ultimate, and i didn't really win that since it was for that whole usage study thing they did for a few months, and all i really did was leave my laptop running, doing next to nothing.... and not even running the entire time.

    Guess i can say..... never won anything EXPENSIVE.
