Wow, is that the blasted luck of a newbie geek, a few minutes ago finding out the contest is now closed at something like Dec. 7, 2008 1:07 a.m. as I finish of my first post? Oh the pain, the pain ... Oh Will, the pain is beyond the understanding of your young mind. Again I find myself lost in space. Or is it Tossed and Spaced?

I could fill the page with expletives, but alas, what good will that do?

All I wanted for Christmas was a $6000 giveaway of HP stuff (as much as I despise them), and alas, the contest is closed. I was going to write I backup my important stuff from my 40 gig C drive to the 80 gig D drive and then onto CD's, but now... I am unable to do so. *edit* Cursed from birth, why stop now?

*edit* the water is getting closer to the houses!

Oh what fun life is... Nothing really matters, anyone can see, nothing really matters... to me (I miss ya Freddy!)

My first impression of geekstogo, like Pearl Harbor, has been bombed... what a cruel cruel world it is...

Bumblefoot or is it Toofelbmub?

Hi Bumblefoot and welcome to GtG.

Quote:My first impression of geekstogo, like Pearl Harbor, has been bombed... what a cruel cruel world it is...If you only joined GtG in order to enter the contest,then you might be right. But to GtG there is more than just the contest,there are great people here,all the forums are full of info and lots of unpaid volunters to sort out your or other peoples computerproblem. So before you write of this great site,dig a bit further :)

As for the contest,it's still open.Just click on the link,scroll down to the part where you see the E-Mail and the comment box, fill everything in and you're ready to go!

Cheers and good luck

Hi Bumblefoot

I was going to write I backup my important stuff from my 40 gig C drive to the 80 gig D drive and then onto CD's, but now... I am unable to do so.

Thatís not the right contestÖ.The contest that is closed is the external hard drive bundle giveaway, not the 6 grand hp magic giveaway. Please feel free to enter the magic giveaway if you would like, and donít be so quick to bad mouth the site because you didnít follow the directions.

$6000 HP Magic Giveaway Contest!

Hi Zorba, and thanks for the welcome, and explanation on the contest(s). I'm sure there are many great people, and far more knowledgable than I. The opportunity to continue the path of the infinite learning curve is the reason I joined, and misunderstood the contest(s). My apologies for such. I have reasons/excuses for jumping to conclusions, such as overtired, grouchy and stressed out to name a few. Just found the place yesterday, so I shall take your advice and dig, and learn, and most likely post issues of my own. If I have experienced problems and solved them, and I see someone who needs help, I'll be most glad to put 21 years of computer experience to good use.

Cheers and good luck to you as well!

Mr. BHowett, thank you also for informing me about the contest(s). There is a difference to not following directions, than not understanding the directions. I just got here. Go easy on the newbie. Interesting "edit"-ing with 'play on words'. So much to learn, so little grey matter. Being "PC" is something I've never done. Please bear with me as I stumble around on unknown turf.
