The contest ends this Sunday!

by Joseph Moore In reply to What happened to the If y ...

Oz, strange timing, this. I posted yesterday in one of the Geek threads what was going on with this.
When they posted the URL to vote for the best of the Top 5 Geek people, I was happy (sort of!) that I was one of them!
I received an e-mail today from Judy Mottl saying that I really am a Top 5 contender. Here is a portion of the e-mail I received:

Dear Mr. Moore,
Congratulations on being chosen a finalist in the TechRepublic 'Why I'm The Top Geek at TechRepublic' contest!

It's an extraordinary feat given the number of terrific member submissions, and to acknowledge your status we've created a special honorary email signature file that you can use in honor of this achievement.

The voting to chose the top winner among the six finalists is in its last week with voting ending Sunday, January 18th.

So we thought we'd send you a note so you can let your friends and colleagues know about the voting before the contest ends.

To cast a vote click here:

And they also sent me a Top 5 Geek GIF that I can use. It is here:

So, if anyone hasn't voted, quickly go now and do so!

Thank you sir

I was wondering when the top 5 voting would start or where to find it.

Good luck in the finals,

I'm in there too

by Oz_Media In reply to Thank you sir

I made the second list, what makes YOU a geek.

Had no idea about it though.

Don't really know

by Oz_Media In reply to Did you get your logo yet ...

I saw an email in my online account. Found the sig but didn't really dig through much. I got a geek finalist jpeg if that's what you mean.

Probably not, I think I would have noticed.

I didn't make the top 5 in your vategory, but the top 6 in the second category. "what MAKES you a geek?" as opposed to Define Geek.

I think, I am also gpong to run for president of the US after this one. :-) Then I can display my Geek finalist jpeg on the oval office carpet instead of that goofy logo they use now.

Now if you did that

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Don't really know

The TV program West Wing would have to change their sets and we couldn't have that happening could we?

Anyway didn't someone say here on one of the other threads that you had to be born Americian to get elected to the office of President?

So I guess that rules us both out OZ.

not only thzt, but ...

if the TR Logo was placed in the Oval Office, the president would have to be a Republican.

Not my loss

by Oz_Media In reply to Now if you did that

I guess the upside to that is I can't be drafted by the US Army either. I get to go fishing and enjoy my family instead of being sent to the Iraq death camp. The D-toll continues to rise I see, what is it now, 500!?

( Why do I giggle like a school girl when I type that!?

by Joseph Moore In reply to YAY!!

I want to know who else is in the Top 5?
Who else received the logo in their e-mail today?
