Thanks again everyone! I do believe this is the second longest contest thread here, btw. And most of those pages are entries! :shock:

I'm extremely jealous of myself, too, btw! :P

The March contest is coming and it is monthly... I'm having to setup a mailing list for this months prize and I didn't have the time to make it and static code an html page till today.

This month is being sponsored by Super Talent and a long time friend, so let's just say we will have a few winners this month and each prize is something in the 2GB range...

We will have monthly contests all year as 12 companies signed up for them last year.

Cheers
