    Re: Win a Western Digital SSD upgrade

    I get the impression Zak has been made Safety Officer and has overseen a reduction in accidents exactly the same as the amount of accidents caused by Zak in his previous role.

    Just putting it out there, floating an idea...



    Edit: Just scuppered my chances of winning, I think.

    Just heard a report on the news of a guy who goes by the Alias "Smudger" has been abducted by a man in a bright orange van in St. Albans. Apparently the abductor complained about capital letters or something as well.

    Just had a 2TB Seagate Barracuda die on me yesterday. Not backed up, of course. I'm currently in mourning, and getting a couple of SSDs would certainly cheer me up.

    Re: Win a Western Digital SSD upgrade

    Seems a strange selection for each tier, somehow I expected the green to be a lower prize rather than bundled in with the more performance oriented ones.
    Still more SSD storage would be welcome regardless, though i'd need new motherboard before I could take advantage of the m.2.

    Re: Win a Western Digital SSD upgrade

    Hey Guys, hope you are all well, as you are aware I am blind so, therefore, have to use the computer with specialised audible software. I've been entering these competitions for well it seems like forever I think God was a teenager when I first started lol BUT I seem to be passed by every time. may I ask a question which we all must have asked ourselves from time to time, "Are these `WINNERS` real people?"

    Has anyone noticed is there any criteria for picking winners? Or is it just aged VIPs [VIP = Visually Impaired People] who tend to get overlooked or am I just feeling a little `hard done by?`

    anyway I wish each and everyone of you good luck

    They are indeed, as a few forum regulars have already proven. Some others are only in it for the competition, but we do have some Hexites who post pics of their winnings.

    I have not had reason to ask myself that on this site.
    Some others, yes.
    But that was for reasons other than me not winning.
    More the presentation such as using other people's images, and lack of information such as rules.

    Re: Win a Western Digital SSD upgrade

    Hi there. Quick noob question.

    I've already participated here and on Facebook, but i came back today to check and it's open again like I haven't participated. This already happened in past competitions.

    The question: If i submit another answer here and FB do I get disqualified?

    hello

    Website and Facebook entries are still seperate, so they both count.
