Enter the hallowed halls of the "League of HH Winners", rrplay, and drink from the chalice of...

Actually, he won like an unknown amount of times... So I'm guessing he's going to be admitted into the second or third timers club; where the repeat winners are admitted to after they win a HH contest again. I heard that they play fancy classical music and have full access to Dave, Marco, even Iyaz. I even heard that there are sweet sexy asian hardware out there they have pleasure with... I don't know how they pleasure it but they they do pleasure hardware (stuff you couldn't see anywhere else or even afford) like woman.

Anyway, congrats rrplay. To be honest, I didn't know who was going to win (you were with 5 other veterans in post and community contribution.) but I'm surprised by the result regardless. Your birthday may of been a few days ago but just tell your parents that this system is a post-birthday gift that simply took too long to arrive. I'm sure they'll be pleased.

Also please post alot of benchmarks and pics, we just die for those around here.
