Oh - and because I want to share - hubby loved the Sony Cybershot camera. Fun for all the family :D And I got a lovely piece of jewellery, plus all those smelly things for the bathroom. People aren't very inventive, are they?

Hope everyone is having a good day, filled with family and friends. Merry Christmas all.

Congratulations people. To receive your prize, you must email me on my official IDG address (it's in PCW, and can be found on this site, I think).
Your email address should/must match your profile in your user details.

You need to use the subject "robo, you are the greatest".
Just kidding, use subject "SANTA PRIZE".

I will assemble the details and the elves will send the prizes out about the 6th of January.

Thank you to everyone on F1 for making this one of the coolest sites out there. Especially people like Tweak'e, Heather, Susan, Mike, Chilling, and other regular contributors and answerers. You are all appreciated and I wish I could show that in a more material way (I try, believe me I try).

Hope everyone had a good day. Boy it's hot in Auckland.
Signing off to go watch The Santa Clause with my kids.

Thanks for the nice comment Robo.

Was busy today mangling turkeys (how DO you carve the things?) being nice to my nephew (that scared him but now he's 12 he's improving), and also talking to the rest of the family. Far too busy for computers till now.

Congratulations to the winners.

I had trouble with our turkey too. I reckon those rolled roast packs are way better and easier. The real thing has a wing the size of a condor and the legs need a chainsaw. They are definitely built differently from chickens.

What a pleasent surprise,the kids will be rapt!

Also a big thankyou to the sponsors.

Well Robo,

When I was little my Dad carved, when my husband was little his mother carved. We've thus lived in a total state of conflict over who's job it is - and both of us refuse to learn to do it properly. So I mangled the turkey in the kitchen onto a plate and he mangled the ham at the table onto plates.

The kids have now taken a good look at the leftovers in the frig and departed for a week.

honeylaser

Damned IDG perks. Mind you, I can't complain - I did win a game from IDG a couple of months ago, and a few days after $1000 travel from IDC :D

By one pathetic minute. As I sat there drumming my fingers on the table waiting to be connected via 56k. Blame it on the hardware. Blame it on the ISP. Blame it on the rain. Whatever. I built a bridge and got over it :D
