Welcome back. Over a week ago, I announced the giveaway for 5 copies of the official Windows Vista Preview magazine published by Future generously donated by Paul Douglas. Over that week, I’ve experienced highs and lows, lefts and rights, pushes and pulls, and pretty much every directional verb I can think of. I’m surprised so many people share my passion for reading in the bathroom.

In other news, my good friend Frank Arrigo was admitted to hospital, and subsequently released. Paul Thurrott leaked some Vista icons with JPEG compression so rough, I couldn’t even see pixels. James Senior even started a competitions war with me.

But the day you’ve been all agonizing for is here. Enough of my verbal diarrhea. Here are the 5 lucky people who will be reading something worth reading in the near future:

  • Jason Jorgensen
  • Ben Noble
  • E. Cameryn Holstick
  • Lachlan Grant (Disqualified for providing inaccessible email)
  • Jason He
  • Joe Furniss

Any disputes or theories of collusion can be directed to nobodycares@thisisnotarealemail.com, on which an imaginary person called Sarah will handle all of your complaints.

Have a great day. And if you’ve won, you are already having a great day. Life doesn’t suck, does it?

10 insightful thoughts

  1. I was having a good day (I think), but then I saw that I had been disqualified :-S

    I’m pretty sure I provided you with my normal Gmail address Long. I usually check it daily, so I have no idea how you deemed it “inaccessible”.

  2. I found out that I had made a typo, so I blame myself :-$

    Thanks for your help Long, and also the entertaining, informative posts that make your blog great to read ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Can’t wait too read the magazine!

    I enjoy this blog very much, though never in the bathroom.
    heh heh

    Thanks a lot!
