Hey Brian,

Does it help the more times you post in the contest thread as to your chances of winning?

Let there be neon light!

Not according to the rules (at least as said by Brian). But, if it did, I would be posting every minute of the day as I have nothing be to do than get packages from Jurgen. I mean, hell, it's from Jurgen, right.

Hello - You can comment as much as you want, but you're only counted once :)

I create a list of all of the unique posters in this thread and assign them a number sequentially. From there, I pick a winning number via random.org . If your number = number selected, you win.

Random.org isn't hardcore enough. If you want to select a random number and fight communism at the same time, here's the proper way to do it...

*This post does not constitute my entry in the contest, I just wanted to be a smartass.

I saw that book, but then I checked out the reviews on Amazon

"The book is a promising reference concept, but the execution is somewhat sloppy. Whatever algorithm they used was not fully tested. The bulk of each page seems random enough. However at the lower left and lower right of alternate pages, the number is found to increment directly. "

:D It took me a second to get that, I was just about to go grab my copy and attempt to refute his claim.
