The Daily Button – Humpday Edition

I always feel good announcing a contest, it makes ya feel warm and fuzzy to give back and then bitter and cantankerous because I can’t enter. I am very happy to announce we have another contest going for the next two weeks. We have teamed up with PCAlchemy, our long time site sponsor, to give away two XGene wireless optical trackball keyboards. These look to be the best keyboards I have seen to date. All you have to do is go on over to PCAlchemy by following this link and email the model # or the DPI of the optical trackball.

I suppose I don’t need to remind you of our Omaura contest. It is really too kick ass to forget. However, if you are new, you are welcome to enter our Omaura contest. Entry is simple, just post in this thread descrbing how an Omaura case would change your life.
