Competition Our recent competition in association with Vulture Central webhosts Rackspace offering Reg readers the chance to snaffle an all-singing, all-dancing Gizmondo attracted an impressive 2,700 entries.

That's an awful lot of wannabe Gizmondistas, which is why it has taken us a couple of weeks to pick two lucky winners using the traditional random selection method, viz; write every name on a small slip of paper and pin them to an enormous wall of sandbags; discharge at said wall a shotgun cartridge containing 3,000 traditional lead pellets and two pellets lovingly handcrafted from enriched uranium; seek radioactive pellets with Geiger counter; match location of nuclear material to nearest two slips of paper.

Simple as that. And the two readers whose lives are now fully enriched are:

  • Daniel Owen
  • Ed Perchick

Good show. Congratulations to our winners - who will be notified by email as to how they can claim their prize - and thanks to everyone who participated. ®
