Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.






I figured it'd be fun to make my 1st post in the form of a haiku.

Reminder: posts in this thread do NOT count, I think he's looking for something like this:

Well, maybe not quite so long ...

jackbritton@gmail.com, you might want to ask Jeremy to change that LQ user name to avoid spammers harvesting your e-address.

The announcement on the front page, the first post in this thread and the bulletin I received via eMail all have a different time stamp, and they all say "in the next 72 hours". When and where will the winner be announced (I don't care that much about the exact deadline)?

Well, nice idea anyway, though with that much participation, my own chances of winning decrease gradually ; )

The announcement on the front page and the first post in this thread are actually the same post, so should have the same timestamp. We'll select the winners at roughly 1pm LQDT on Thursday.

A final reminder, as the community bulletin processing has completed:

Posts made in this thread do NOT count toward eligibility for the contest.

Good luck!
