NANY 2009 Rewards
« on: November 26, 2008, 01:41:12 PM »
For those who already have 2 mugs from DC for participating in previous NANY 2009 events, perhaps we could offer this deluxe zipped hoodie:

Maybe we a custom NANY 2009 Cody logo?

Zip around town in style with this zip-up hooded sweatshirt. Made of soft fleece, it keeps you (and anyone next to you) toasty. Yet it's rugged enough for impromptu games of touch football.
    * 10 oz. fleece blend (90% cotton/10% polyester)
    * Fleece-line hood
    * Jam-resistant metal zipper
    * Heavy-weight 1x1 ribbing at cuffs and waistband
    * Durable double-needle sewing

Looks great see I should have participated last year ;) By the way maybe that shop should be promoted better as an alternative way to donate? First time I've visited it you see.
What's with the prices thoguh? 65 quid for a mug?

This shop has been set up as a way to thank those people who are making unusually large donations to DonationCoder.com. The items in this store have been marked up substantially, so that we receive from $50 to $75 of each purchase; this is your donation to our site.

The truth is that it seems more special to give out those things to people on special occasions, rather than have people buying them -- so the ridiculous prices help make sure that people don't just buy things.

I'm not sure if this is the right place (but it seems best).

By a happy mistake (give-aways from a previous Review that got lost), I have 7 copies of Backup4All available, that we'll be giving away to NANY 2009 entrants (note: they are not winners as such, well, they are winners because they get a brand spanking new version of Backup4All, but they're not winners because they "beat" everyone else, per se).

Mouser has said that I should choose who should receive them, and although I feel totally out of my depth in this, I'll be awarding the B4A copies to those entries that I feel benefit DonationCoder (my argument is that users give donations because of the benefit they receive, and these awards are given because of the benefit DC receives). So I'm not entirely sure how I'll come to a decision, but Mouser wanted a quirky, widespread approach so hopefully that's what we'll get.

No matter what, NANY is a great concept, and we all appreciate your efforts!

I have a couple of miscelaneous computer things to give away, an external usb2 dual sata drive enclosure, some good sata racks, a tv tuner.

Wow, that hoodie looks nice!

I don't have a NANY mug, but I do have a DC mug from the captioning contest - wish I had some (realistic) ideas for NANY so I'd have a chance of getting the hoodie :/

I like that hoodie with the zipper, but does it come in gray?

With 2 black & white cats that shed black hairs all over white clothing and white hairs all over black clothing, the only way I can stop them from shedding is to wear gray.  :P

There is this stoneware bowl on cafepress (it says its for pets but could be used for candy dish, etc.); if its like quality of mugs then it could be quite nice indeed:

I mentioned above how I (and others) may have misc. extra prizes to give away.. If NANY participants have specific requests for these items please chime in -- or suggest other prizes you might ask for from people reading, etc.

I would suggest

( http://lifehacker.co...0/uni+ball-kuru-toga )
or similar.
I use a pencil in my everyday life and this would be a great present. And if it had DC mark on it, it would be unbeatable  :Thmbsup:

I'm gunning for the external USB SATA enclosure.   :Thmbsup:
