We are actively looking into website issues. You may encounter degraded performance on the site as we perform maintenance. Thank you for your continued patience!
So, as some of you might remember, we set up a little side contest on Free Day:
As Mentioned on IRC, since we didn't get around to coming up with anything for users of text-only browsers like Lynx, w3m, elinks, et al., IT will be running a side contest with a handful of prizes. If you snailmail us a screenshot, photograph, printout, or related proof of today's SparkFun home page loaded on your terminal of choice, postmarked before the 20th, we'll choose one on the basis of creativity and draw a couple more at random. Prizes to be determined.
We got a nice little pile of submissions - 14 in total - and I've been telling people I would announce winners approximately twice a day since the deadline.
Most recently, I told Emcee Grady I'd put something on the blog around 9am on Wednesday. I'm only running a couple of hours late on that one.
Anyhow, I narrowed things down to half a dozen finalists and coerced everybody in IT plus a few Customer Service reps to vote. The final winner was Harford Hackerspace's snapshot of a dude named Miles grimacing at an ADM-3A with the Free Day home page clearly visible.
The two winners picked at random from the whole pool of entrants (ok, so at pseudorandom):
I'm gonna post this before I disappoint our copywriter any more than I already have - the man's got a regular schedule to uphold here - and update it in a bit with some photos of the more interesting submissions. Thanks to everyone who sent us mail - it was a lot of fun opening all those envelopes.
Winners: I'll be in touch with a promo code. We're just gonna call this equivalent to a Free Day win because I'm way short of the energy to do anything more creative.
