I enter the year,
With a bit of a cheer.
But not in the clear,
Cuz my PC is q-u-e-e-r.
Then I look on this site,
For the hardware so dear.
Opened mouth with delight,
At the sight of Gigabyte.

(A billion-to-one chance to win, I fear)

Woot! Count me in. Though I'm pretty happy with my gtx 470, I really need a new mobo.  One thing that confuses me though, how is my hothardware account tied to my facebook account??  I used different emails for each.

Cool!

 

HH does it again.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Nice, another cool contest.

I kind of like that its many smaller prizes instead of one big prize, so that there is a high chance of winning and creating more winners on the site. However if some one wants to at the site they can send me one of those nice computers :)

Good point about the many smaller prizes, and better chances. But you have to admit, winning a Marco built computer is off the charts when it comes to being cool. The man has mad skills.

eunoia:

Alas, I don't drink.
Or wish to raise a big stink.
And I show a better link
To the comp I won, "Wink".
And, yes, lightning did strike,
When I stood on the brink.
But systems do fail,
When just "in the pink".
And contests still run,
And just when I think,
The winning has won,
I blink.

This should be intersting because its a longer contest than the last few i have participated in, it will be fun to see exactly how long the boost in viewer lasts, it lasted for the entirety of the last two contests and a few days after, i wonder if this contest might start to lose viewers aftert the first week.
