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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
