Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Last week Santa Vulture invited UK Register readers to enter a competition to win a bundle of top LEGO games and software. The winner of the competition is Larry Gardiner, who works in the Compaq Enterprise Solutions and Services Group. More of Larry and his prize-winning entry later. We had lots of entries -- including a few from overseas readers wanting to join in. Sorry we couldn't accommodate you this time round, folks -- but watch this space for more Register giveaways and offers in 2000. And so to the results. Well, just about everybody got the question right: where does LEGO get its name from -- it's the contraction of the Danish words 'leg' and 'godt' which together mean 'play well'. For the tie-breaker, we asked you to tell us what was the best thing you’d ever built using LEGO. Not all the answers to that one can be published -- some of you people have a decidedly dodgy sense of humour. The winning response to the tie-breaker contained all the elements the judges were looking for. This was the winning tie-break: "The best thing I ever built with a set of LEGO was a machine for delivering 'Smarties' for children with physical impairments and learning difficulties. I used LEGO Technic components; it comprised a hopper, a conveyor belt, robust controls and the LEGO 9v motor and reduction gearbox." Larry Gardiner has asked for his prize to be donated to a worthy cause and the goods have been sent out by our friends at LEGO Media. How in keeping with the spirit of Christmas. God bless us, everyone. ® See also Our LEGO competition
