A few of the judges, and FannBlade have been asking to get more nominations or entries to this contest. Humility makes it somewhat difficult to submit your own entry. OCN is a community of giving to, and helping others, without expecting in return. FannBlade, Calamity and others by the shear nature of the generosity shown in this thread, are the epitome of what the OCN community stands for. [/brown nosing]
Throwing humility aside (for the sake of an entry), I nominate myself. There I said it. Normally I would probably not enter a contest like this, but unfortunately, like others who have posted before, I am in need of a new case to replace the broken one in my sig. Alas, as the saying goes, “You get what you pay for.”
Do I deserve to win? That is a question to be answered by the judges. I expect nothing from this forum, other than the satisfaction that I may have helped someone with what is often time a frustrating situation for an OP. The satisfaction when you finally hear, “That worked", or "It’s fixed”, is the reason I’m here. I have given away a few things on OCN, rather than sell them, because someone really needed the item, not because someone wanted them.
That’s enough… I hope that this post may make other OCN contributors put humility aside, and enter this contest for themselves. Don’t let your feelings, that you are a member of OCN to give, rather than receive, stop you from entering. It is very likely, that there are a fair number of members that do
feel that you deserve to enter and win. If you are one of the people that feel this way about another member... nominate that person.
I thank you for the opportunity to enter.

That's enough... I hope.
Edit#2: I have been following the latest Sandy Bridge threads, and have pretty much determined that with the Christmas money I have, and the addition of winning one of these cases, I can almost swing a new 2600K build (that I would of course be obliged to create a build log of). I say "almost" because I think I would only initally be short a new graphics card, by stealling HDDs and Optical drives from other computers. I would have to wait a few months to include that new addition into a new build, so one of my old video cards would need to suffice for a while. The incentive would certainly be there.
Very nice prizes, and defiantly
definitely (lol... that's a unique typo... or was it?)
an extremely cool paint job on the first place prize. As I mentioned above in my entry… the embodiment of OCN.Edited by xandypx - 12/31/10 at 12:06am
