Competition Thanks to all those UK resellers who entered our competition to win an exclusive laptop overnighter. This authentic leatherette wheeled IT transportation solution was kindly provided by Microsoft to herald the launch of Office XP.

All you had to do to stake you claim to this must-have travel accessory was go to www.microsoft.com/uk/partner, check out the Partner Newsletter section and count how many news items were displayed.

This, unfortunately, is where the whole thing went a bit titsup, since there is not a fixed number of stories. The answers received, therefore, ranged from six to 60. Oh dear. However, we decided to throw all the eligible entries into the hat, whatever the figure provided. And the first name pulled from the Vulture Central trilby was Gary Moss, of Hays Redfern Ltd.

Congratulations to Gary who is - let's face it - a lucky, lucky boy. Now he can glide elegantly through the departures lounge safe in the knowledge that his laptop is snugly overnighted. Excellent. ®
