How to Get a Computer

About a week ago, I announced our part in the HP Magic Giveaway. HP and Microsoft are asking you to consider giving the magic of HP and Windows. All winners are encouraged to “pay it forward” by giving the gift of magic themselves. Why keep all of these great items under one roof? Finally today, our contest begins! Our contest begins today, December 4th, and the winner will be chosen on December 10th. We’ve come up with what we feel will be a fun and interesting way to enter… so here are your rules!

  1. Be registered on Geeks. Be sure to include your profile link in your submission.
  2. Write an original how-to, what-is, or top-five article on ANY subject. You’ll submit your entry through my contact page. Submissions should be made ready to be pasted into a new entry on this very blog. Use HTML sparingly.
  3. The work must be at least 500 words long, with proper punctuation, grammar, usage, spelling. Remember your PUGS.
  4. Articles will not be accepted if they require editing, so have someone you trust proofread for you first!
  5. Whichever post gets the most comments by December 10th at 10pm CST is the winner. Submissions will be taken all the way through that day.
  6. Insipid, short, pointless comments, as always, will be deleted.
  7. Get people to comment on your article, but spamming will not be tolerated.
  8. Plagiarists will be flagged and automatically disqualified from any future contests we run here.
  9. Participants can be of any age, but must be residents of planet Earth.

So, if you are the winner, what do you receive? All sorts of goodies! Just take a look at this list:

I sincerely hope our winner will abide by the spirit of the HP Dream by paying it forward, in the form of sharing a portion of their prize with others. To keep track of entries, simply watch the information category of posts. I’ll also keep a running list here (updated every day or so):
