Call me a curmudgeon, but I really hate the spirit behind the l337 one. That, and it took me a couple of fscking minutes to read. Damn 'lamers.'

Well, anything I said about the l33t entry could be interpreted as sour grapes, but that's never stopped me before..... [Wink]

WTF was that gibberish all about?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Umm, Snaggy, who are those people? If they're regular posters to these boards (or even just registered), unless their user names are their screen names, I haven't a clue who they are to congratulate them.

Translated: If they're registered users, can you post the winners'/entrants' screen names?

Um, if that were the case, you'd be revealing they're secret identities. [Wink] Personally, I think it's a bunch of lurkers, or random strangers who found it, and sent e-mail, as Snaggy's announcement suggested. If they were regular forum posters, I'm fairly certain Snaggy would have put them under their nicks.

That was why I asked. It seemed odd that Snaggy would post real names unless it had to do with strange Canadian contest legalities.

I announced the winners as they were submitted by the entries. One was a nick I think (rueyeet ), but don't recognize it from the Forums.

Nitro and I thought the 1337 [email protected] entry was quite funny, and one of the more creative.

We were kinda surprized there weren't more entries from the Forum Folk. MacDs and stereo's were good, and TFD did get an Honorable Mention. [Smile]

I had come up with a list of tech-related things, but I couldn't get them to rhyme or have a brilliant connection with each other, so I didn't think it'd qualify.

What made one list stand out from another?

I didn't think it would fair for me to enter because there would be no chance anyone else would win. [Wink] And people might accuse you of bias. [Big Grin]

What? And break my long losing streak? [Big Grin]

I enter all the startrek.com giveaways, faithfully making an entry a day and I still haven't won anything. [Frown]

EDIT: OK, read it and weep:

On the twelfth day of Christmas Bill Gates gave to me:
12 windows crashing
11 lawsuits pending
10 patches trashing
9 bugs a-bugging
8 bloatwares a-bloating
7 coders stealing
6 spywares lurking
5 SOFTWARE AM-NES-TIES!
4 viruses churning
3 liars lying
2 playschool icons
AND A BALLMER SWEATIN' UP A SPREE!

Well, it certainly would get a +5, Funny on /. But that's almost a given seeing as it is Microsoft bashing humour [Wink]

That's funny, coming from someone who calls himself Mac "Genius". You're also too stupid to recognize a joke. Leave, English pig-dog, or I shall taunt you a second time. [Razz]

It takes true skill to be lame on that many levels. Most people can only manage one [Wink]
