The only sad thing about giveaways is that for every winner there are 300 people that are upset they didn’t win. We’re sorry folks, but there is only one laptop to go around and this time it’s lucky commenter 119, as you can see from the Random.org screenshot. This happens to be commenter “jalp”, who forlornly laments the loss of his own laptop to someone he loves dearly. We’re pretty sure this sweet piece of hardware more than makes up for whatever it is he lost.
A few notes. “Phlow”, we haven’t forgotten you and although in the name of fairness we couldn’t just outright give this to you for your years of loyal readership, our new emphasis on commenting will ensure you’ll be rewarded soon. Keep an eye out. “McMan”, we’re sorry BuckyBalls seem like somewhat of a letdown next to this, but I guess that’s the way the cookie crumbles, whatever that means. Same as Phlow, your presence and your comments won’t go unrewarded.
And same goes for all of you that have been taking a more active part in this community. We’ve been online for almost 5 years now and despite our substantial readership, we haven’t really built the kind of place that people would want to go to to chat and “hang out”. We’re working on it now and I’d like to thank you all for participating in this and our other giveaways. Hopefully you’ll stick around and comment even when we’re not giving stuff away.
