The past 2 podcasts were fantastic! All the awesome MaxPC energy is back.

Though the latest one is my favorite if only because you played my god damn questions about monitors on the air.

Off to put the Dell 2707WFP on my Xmas wish list.

Thanks for the advice guys!




Dave stole my favorite internetism. Boo on him.

Also, congrats to the winner.



Thanks for recognizing my mad paint skillz with will in hell. it might be one of the single most impressive works of art of all time.



Well... I did them all over my lunch hour the day I listened to the podcast... I can't help it that you guys inspire me to prolifically photoshop the hell out of Will. Thanks for the votes, and thanks for your support Dave!

Great podcast #40, keep up the great work!

Xander: "Ugh, OK, you know what? I think we need to zap our PRAM... with a cup of joe."



Is there anything better than winning a contest done by MaximumPC? I highly doubt it.

Feel free to send my the sidewinder i don't mind if ir is a bit large at the moment i am using the essence of a mouse.

You can send me random crap too if you like i don't mind
first comp i have ever won and it feels good.

Thanks MaxPC love the podcast




3rd place. oh sooo close.
owel. que sera sera

Sorry about the the other entries from me that might be deemed offensive, i just plasted Wills face everywhere i could find.

Photoshoping him into WWII or Pol Pots Cambodia in hindsight may not have been the best idea, but the chance of winning orange box was blinding.

Congrad's Daryl Pemberton you lucky bastard!
