Because I had a lot of inquieres about the language, so I decided to write the rules in english too.
1) Send me a photo of yourself with the GeeksRoom, HP and Microsoft logos, and the quote “I want to share the Magic”. Be creative, and you can get more numbers for the draw. Use Photoshop only to apply the logos and the quote, brightness, contrast, colors, but do not add others elements like filters.
2) Answer 3 questions that you can find in this blog:
A) Where I was born? (Country, start with A and finish with A)
B) Where I live? (some friends call me Cowboy)
C) What brand of computer I bought last week? (It is obvious)
3) If you donate some of your prizes to others, you can get more numbers. 1 PC gives you 2 more numbers, 2 or more PC’s give you 5 more numbers for the draw.
4) the email has to be sent to , with the following information:
Name, email address, city and country of residence, answers to the questions A,B and C.
In case that you decide donate some of the prizes, I will need the name, email address, city and country of residence of the person/organization receiving the donation, and a paragraph telling me why you choose this person or organization.
The emails with the requirements to participate will be accepted until December 17, 2008, at 6:00 pm Central Time US.
5) We will decide the winner, using the Sequence Generator procedure of the Random.org website.
6) The winner will be contacted by email, and have 48 hrs to accept the prize, if we don´t receive any answer, the prize will be for the next in the list generated in Random.org, and so on, but the runner up will only have 24 hours for to respond, and so on.
