Well, Last month, I got a Visual Basic(VB) Clock from reading the VB Microsite in MVP Secure Site. I am the only one who read and reply to VB Team. Here is the paragraph in March VB Microsite in MVP Secure Site,
Welcome to the March edition of the Visual Basic Microsite. First off, I would like to congratulate KenLin for being the first (and only!) person to respond to my little hidden giveaway. The coveted MVP Clock is on its way to Hong Kong, make sure you keep an eye on this section for the next giveaway!
And then I also found out a site to give away small and stupid prize to someone who help communities. I did not submit my points on time in Feb(It should be submitted before the begin of next month). And I submit on time in March and I got a prize when I check email this morning. It is i-Dog!!! I got the First Prize of March!!!
Here is the email i got,
Congratulations, you won 1st Prize in the March 2006 Contest! As you may know, a lot of people competed but only a few won and you are among that select few. Nicely done!!! Please also keep in mind that your prize is not just a stupid, geeky gift, but it is also a symbol to represent your contributions to the development community. When folks ask you how you won, you can tell them that it was by helping out other geeks. Be proud and brag alot!!! Below you will find the details of your prize.
Here is little intro to the Site,
Overview of Community Credit
Community Credit was founded by David Silverlight, a Microsoft MVP and an active member of the development community, as a way to reward fellow IT Professionals who have contributed toward the development community. Currently, the rewards for these contributions are simply the satisfaction of helping colleagues in the development community. Now, they can be rewarded by recieving not only geeky gifts like a Swiss Army USB Drives, Caffeinated Hot Sauce or a Binary Wall Clock, but they also recieve a cool plaque to hang on their wall and impress their coworkers.
Actually, I read the URL from MVP Secure newsgroup and I did foward the URL to Daniel and Tony, Tony did registered, But I think Daniel did not. Anyway, if Daniel join, I am sure that he won. He help more than me. And this month, the stupid prize will be………..Projector KeyBoard!!!!! Yes…..Projector KeyBoard…..
Hurry and get a try!!!!!
