Just to let you guys know the main website is being changed/upgraded over the weekend which is why some bits may look out of place for today...

The reason being - i wasn't going to update until all pages where finished but i accidentally overwrote the main websites index with the new one - so i had to put the rest of what i had done up or else the homepage would have been messed up all day as well...

Well i had to cut the first competition short by a few days (no biggy).

The winner is...........David Nielsen well done, you have been emailed!

The reason for this is that i have installed phpbb and am in the process of moving anything user related on the website over to phpbbs user system, this means i will be wiping all current comments to make sure no comments get broken...

Okay so i forgot i had a spare copy of this, i got a copy of Osmos for Linux for helping to support them a while back with their port with a lot of advertising.

So how would you lovely folks fancy your chances at winning the copy? Competition has ended!

All you have to do is answer this question in the comments:
Why do you think you deserve to win it? (yes that simple )

If you are not registered and logged in, be sure to leave your email to contact you if you win!
Edit > You can now leave your name and email in the boxes when you comment, no one but me sees your email so don't worry...
