Default Special Linus Thread

Make sure you're following me on Twitter @LinusTech for more details, but basically the special code word is: "WHERE'S"

Twitter contests are lame, only kids that still live with their parents and go to school use twitter.

Nice idea, but granted we are in Canada, its hard when you ask for the first to do something.

I'm also part of the crowd that despises Twitter, I see no point to it, but I got a "commercial" account to help groups I like, but that is where the purpose of my account ends.

Yeah lame contest is LAME. I have nothing against Twitter contests...but to have it over before you even post it here...yeah that is kinda insulting. Why bother even posting it here? :/

Had a twitter account once to follow my hockey team. I my opinion it should be renamed "endless mindless spam account" It has been deleted.....................

Um. No it wasn't. Timestamps are a convenient thing on the Internet...

Honestly this could have been better organized. This time I made the mistake of making it a "time-sensitive" thing. Next time I will give a couple of days then do a random draw from the people who solve the puzzle. I didn't think people would get it SOOOO fast.

As for those who don't like Twitter... Sorry. It's a very convenient way to communicate with followers, especially compared to the crap YouTube PM system, so I use it.

It's also one of the ways "social media" folks get evaluated by the powers that be, so make of that what you will ;)
