LQ Birthday Celebration


As part of LQ recently turning eleven, we'd like to give away some great prizes. In addition to the 11 Contributing member upgrades mentioned in the linked thread, we're going to give away 11 Gift Certificates to the LQ Merchandise Store (some $25 and some $50) and a 100% gratis pass to OSCON 2011 in Portland (which LQ will also be attending). We'll be doing this over the next week or so, but to get things started in 24 hours we'll pick:

* One random LQ member who has posted between now and then
* One random twitter follower (http://twitter.com/linuxquestions)
* One random facebook follower (http://www.facebook.com/LinuxQuestions.org)

Each selected member will receive one $25 gift certificate to the LQ Merchandise Store. Keep an eye on this thread for details on how the other 8 Gift Certificates and the OSCON pass will be given away.

Awesome, I'll keep one eye on this thread and the other one on LQ Spy (for as long as my boss or wife doesn't notice I'm not working).

Kind regards,

Eric

We'll post additional information on the OSCON pass and additional LQ Gift Certificates soon. In the meantime, I'm happy to announce that to celebrate the launch of their new online shop with digital editions of all available magazines, http://shop.linuxnewmedia.com has agreed to give away gratis subscriptions to Smart Developer, Ubuntu User and ADMIN magazine. In 48 hours we'll select three posts from the LQS&F forum and each member will receive a one year digital subscription to one of the magazines. Feedback is absolutely critical to us and this is a great way to let us know what you think and have the chance to win a great prize. Good luck.
