  • Win a 4870x2 for leaving a comment

    Smashing Magizane, one of the sites I check daily, is having a giveaway with a few computer toys, including a 4870x2. You don't even have to register at the site, just leave a comment with your city and what the weather is today.

    The catch is, they won't start the contest unless they get over 5000 comments, but they are already up to 1,700+. Still though, 1/5,000 is still better odds than the lottery, so be sure to leave a comment.

      Not paging the comments was a bright idea on that site...

      It's nearly 2800 comments now.

        They usually don't have more than a few comments on articles, so the site probably wasn't set up for it. Glad I got in early :D

          Sad when I just paste the metar instead of simply walking upstairs and looking out the window. In my defense, its dark, so I cant see outside.

          Now, why cant that be based off of details given. Post 2741 is by far the most detailed. Pressures, wind speeds, cloud altitudes etc.

              5,744 comments at 10:16 A.M EST, so we got the 5,000 comments. Would be nice to actually get something.

                  Even if I get the headphones or mouse, they might make good gifts for friends/family.

                    Heck if I win anything I'll count it as a huge miracle and cherish whatever I get forever.

                        OMG, this isn't the first time. They should have realized at least after the first post-a-lot-of-comments contest and fixed it before doing another.
