Re: [Ending] OSNN, Ivy Worldwide, Microsoft and HP Giveaway
He will read the answers, and than we, as a community will pick the most outlandish, humorous suck up story that someone wrote in one paragraph. Sob Stories, get binned , you have use those on another site.
Bonus points, if you mention World Domination, Aliens, Beer
Bonus Bonus points if your entire paragraph was in Xhtml, all tags properly formatted.
Ok, so it has taken me the last four and a half hours of reading my emails (submitted when private messages were received) , I have finally managed to work my way through and select it a winner.
Trust me, it has not been an easy process as we have had many great entries and it sucks that today it is only possible for me to make a fraction of our entries happy. I really wanted to give these two laptops, the software to keep them linked and the bag to one of the many people that seemed like they would really benefit from the hardware.
Keeping the two laptops together was really the key and of course using the software to keep your documents on both machines synchronised at all times was the name of the game. So as gracious as offering relatives and friends the mini would have been, they would not have been together!
I didn't exactly know how I was going to handle picking a winner, I had the choice of randomly picking from anyone or working my way through and the latter is what I chose to do.
Obviously there can only be one winner but I am glad that so many new people have managed to find this site and I hope you will stick around to see what we have to offer.
So yes, without further ado I would like to announce that
The winner of the OSNN, Ivy Worldwide, HP, Microsoft, Timbuk2 Better Together giveaway is Vanessa237!
Like many of our entries, she is at college and will greatly benefit from the ability to have a larger laptop at home and one to take to class for notes.
So congratulations and consolations to everyone else, I just wish there is more I could have done as I did hear lots of sad stories, but you are preaching to the choir!
Lastly thanks to everyone that entered and completed the survey as that will really help us out and a special thanks to Jewelzz for working with the hardware and the rest of the OSNN team for dealing with the increased work and my ranting and raving.
Competitions on other sites are still ongoing so it is not too late to get your hands on some hardware, good luck!
