SparkFun will be closing early at 3:30 Friday 5/27 and remain closed Monday for Memorial Day (5/30). Orders placed after 2pm MT on Friday (5/27) will process and ship out on Tuesday (5/31).
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.
