I guess we shouldn't sing our victory songs nor dress for the party. YET!

I'd like to know if it was correct, although I don't think EP will disclose it (can't say I blame EP; the potential drama isn't worth it), so I'm gonna ask your opinions in the forums:

1. FreeBSD
2. xp-erience.org
3. Windows XP
4. 3rd September 2002
5. (Windows XP) Expert Zone Community
6. August 24, 1981

I wasn't sure about #5, so I entered all that I could. I think its right, but idk...
And yes, my adrenaline is building; these are great odds to win!
Look all correct to me.

I'm excited.

This is the best (well, winning is the best... so second best) part of any contest... anticipation of results!

Okay, best parts of contests:
1. Winning
2. Anticipation of End Result
3. Looking at the Prize before Entry

Stunning revelation while purposefully delaying announcing the winner.
But I have actually met most of the owners of the 31 sites and actually got drunk with them in Las Vegas including the guys from Buzz Corps.

How weird is that considering how little time I spend in Vegas (and how much time I spend drunk)

Guess that if EP'd drunk right now and him being drunk would mean choosing you.... your opinion would shift 180 degrees?

Just saying...

Well I did my little draw and came out with a random number between 1 and 65 of 16.
What does that mean!!?!

Nothing by itself! I checked the result the winner had one post. Oh no, I would be kicking myself!

Another random number produced 5 and a winner with 4 posts all made on May 4th, not a winner.

Another roll has produced the number 6, the owner of this particular email has made posts since they signed up not all of which have been about the competition and seems to have made contributions in various threads.

So congratulations to Mizzle and once I have figured out what the hell is supposed to happen next I will be in touch.

If you could private message your name, phone number and address that should be at least a good starting point. I haven't seen it written anywhere but I will pass on these details to the other sites taking part so you don't win another one - hey one is good enough right?

Thanks to everyone for taking part and it does make me sad that there aren't more prizes to give away and although my answers seem to have been shakey (was short notice to be honest!) but I enjoyed myself. For those that jonied for the competition I hope you will stick around.

I would also like to thank all the OSNN staff for bearing with this (it has been a lot of work for some of us) and everyone for being patient when the server was tweaked for optimal performance.

Thanks to the OSNN members who didn't need such an incentive to take part in our little part of the web. I will start working towards a competition specifically for members although obviously I just made this up so have no details at this time.

One last thanks to the guys at Buzz Corps and HP for making this all possible.While the competition is over for OSNN, it is ongoing elsewere and today it has started on Digital Home Thoughts and you can find the other sites taking part over on 31 Days of the Dragon.

Thanks for taking part.

OSNN 2.0 is coming
