Contest #2 - Techgage Survey (5.8% chance of winning)

There were many suggestions thrown at us, and they could have been as in-depth or as simple as possible in order to be entered. We plan to take all the suggestions and evaluate them carefully and will implement the good ones!

How winners for contest #2 and #3 were chosen: Due to the randomization capabilities of PHP, a small script was written that would grab all the potential winners from a remote file. After each winner, they were removed from the file so that they could not win two items. The %'s mentioned above were determined by how many total eligable winners were listed.

I will contact each of the winner to gather shipment info.

Thanks again for everyone who entered the contests, and sorry to those to left empty handed! This contest was a great success and there will be many more in the future.
