i need to win because:

bill gates & i went to school together.
he was always buying bright ideas from my classmates, so he always had the best science projects.
he bought an idea from augusto pinochet and so he was class president for years.
he bought the quarterback position on our team (we didn't do so hot that year...)

so, just this once, i'd like to get something he didn't. ><

I deserve to win as I have selflessly offered to donate my older inferior Pi to a friend in need.Also I have donated my second older inferior Pi to a cause that may indeed change the lives of a few. :breakfast:

I'd like to win because of the Raspberry Pi. That is something unique to show two of my grandkids that seem to be taking an interest in how computers work. Then maybe a few of the others (10 total grandkids) might get excited about computing!

ESET Smart Security 6 for Microsoft Windows OR ESET Cyber Security Pro for Mac are the best security software currently available. ESET Mobile Security for Android keeps your Android based phone safe too. Raspberry Pi Model B Revision 2.0 (512MB) is a great little board for your new micro computer. EmsiSoft Anti-Malware software is based on two

of the best virus scanning technologies combined for optimal detection, WinPatrol Plus

provides increased performance, real-time monitoring without slow downs,customized Registry monitoring, ActiveX management and access to their program database.-- Patriot Memory Supersonic Xpress 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (PSF16GXPUSB) is an excellent USB 3.0 drive. Lots of capacity too with 16gb of space for all your data needs.

I have had some very bad luck, seriously, for the last few months and winning would bring a big old smile to
my old ugly mug.

I would like to win because I love Raspberry Pie and a little computer with a similar name sounds like a fun little toy. (Any other prizes would be welcome, one can never have too much software or too many flash drives!)

Run a contest and they will post! I'm surprised that all these Scot's forum members for years haven't posted until this contest.

I wouldn't mind having a hands on experience with a Raspberry Pi. Enough forum members have posted info on the wee computer that I know I could yell for help if I won.

Hey, 13 is a lucky number. It was the day I was born on..... Better than that, I was born on a Friday (early morning) :devil: B)

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

You say you want a revelation
Well, you know
We all want to change the channel
You tell me that it's devaluation
Well, you know
We all want to change the channel
But when you talk about MS Windows
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right
