Actually Mauricio, the congratulations (and huge thanks!) go to you.  Without your foresight in setting this site up and your skills in managing/developing it, this competition wouldn't have been here.

Now, where to put all this stuff until my partner and I figure what we're going to do with it all.  She was looking at Mini Notebooks the other day and making cooing noises so I know where that's going.  My parents have an old, old desktop running W2KP (very slowly) so they'll be getting a nice christmas present - "which one?" is going to be the question though.

As for the rest - don't know yet.  I'll be looking to give more of it away to family/friends but have to try and decide who without upsetting others.  Until the decisions are made, maybe I'll make the lounge look like something out of The Matrix...

Congratulations Dratsab!!!

I would have to say that in all honesty, I am disappointed that I didn't win.

However, looking at your posts and the support you've given GeekZone, you really are a worthy recipient.

Well done & enjoy your Christmas presents.
