Sennheiser forum giveaway!

Sennheiser forum giveaway!

To be in with a chance of winning a Sennheiser PC 161 headset, all you have to do is post in the forums.

We know that you guys in the community are the driving force for bit-tech being the site it is today. Tens of thousands of you come each day to share your thoughts on the latest and greatest, and we appreciate every one of you. It's a shame we don't have that many headphones to give away.

Yep, that's right - as our way of rewarding our loyal readers, we've joined up with Sennheiser to put some sweet little goodies up for grabs for you all.

We've got a pair of Sennheiser PC 161 headsets to give away to two lucky bit-tech forum members, which retail at £50 in the UK and which we reviewed not long ago.

The best news is that we're not even giving you a question or task to complete, all you have to do is be active on the forums to be in with a chance. It doesn't matter if you've got 15,000 posts under your belt or if you're an utter n00b to bit-tech. What we're looking for here is somebody who can post quality - whether that be a well thoughout joke which sends us ROFLing, or an insightful and cutting remark about our articles.

We've got a headset to give away in Hardware and Software discussion and a headset for the Gaming discussion section too, so you've got an open arena on topic.

Of course, if you aren't a member yet then it's not too late to sign up. All you need is a working email address to register and unlock the benefits, which include the ability to post in our Scan tech support forum and free delivery on any order over £20. What's more, the competition is open worldwide, so everyone gets a fair chance.

The headsets will be given away in a month from today - which is Saturday, 11th of August - to two lucky posters. We'll be keeping a close eye on both the Hardware and Gaming discussions, but if you want to point us to something you think is particularly noteworthy then you can always let us know in the thread dedicated to this giveaway.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get posting!

So, if I understand correctly, only posts in the Gaming and Hardware/Sof t ware forums are considered? Oh well, guess I won't be winning this one.
:(

EDIT: Ok, I think the swear filter got a little ambitious. It kept changing "Sof t w are" to "SOis really greatare."

All nice and dandy, but my "what is this linux thing" sticky still remains at the top of the Hard & Software forum ;)

That, and I'm really looking for a headset atm ;)

Surely I win for my attemps at spelling and also for the fact my space-bar only half works!

When it said 'an utter n00b' I instantly thought you would link to someone who isn't actually new here, just someone who is kinda noobish.

meh :/ would have preferred a simply "answer the question" type competition as then at least it has some sort of formal rules and way of winning, instead of just post random stuff and hopefully one of the bit tech staff will like it

I think it's great to have a competition where the winner is decided by the roll of the dice. It should be a good way to make people more active forum users. But I think we all know who's going to win this one.

Oh and on a related note, may I draw your attention to this particularly generous example of my fudge reviewing services.

You're so right, it was so obvious after all, simply linking to this dude would have made much more sense.

Lol, some of the threads listed here are now definitely on my shortlist. I'm thinking we need a second prize to give out to the single best lolcat picture too though. Will suggest it to Tim, he loves his cheezburgers.

Heres one I whipped up.

Id like to share my past experience , perhaps this will entertain;

There I was, stocking the shelves back up in aisle 5. I was nearly finished with the cordial section and was moving onto the bottled water. "Where's the breadcrumbs?", I heard over my shoulder. I turned to see a short scruffy looking man with a shopping basket full of chocolates and carbonated drinks.

I was new at the time yet I did my best to help the gentlemen out even though I had no idea where the breadcrumbs were. "I believe they are in aisle 3 sir, I'm not to sure as I am new around here but I can find someone else who can help you if you'd like", I politely suggested to which he loudly replied "NO! Just tell me where they are you lazy bastard, I don't have the time to F*** around!" I could not believe the rudeness I had encountered in this man. Still, I did my best to keep calm and try to reflect some of my calmness onto the customer, "Sir, I assure you I'm not trying to waste your time, I honestly am not sure where the breadcrumbs are, but if you'll just follow me to John over there, I'm sure he can show you where they are located", I replied in a polite yet assertive tone of voice.

Sadly, it appeared the customer had reached the point of no return in regards to good manners and the scene turned ugly. In a split second I saw his grip release from his basket and form into a tight fist as he began the path of an uppercut destined for my lower jaw. Luckily, my instincts served me well as I was able to predict his action early and dodged to the left with great haste. I dove for the opposite side of the aisle, grabbing a handful of uncoated paper plates on my way to the ground, not before unleashing a flurry of the them towards the man, catching him offguard but causing no real damage, as he continued his rampage towards me, arms flailing about the place, I quickly rolled to my side and noticed an opened packet of sugar laying beneath the shelf which I quickly snatched up and strew across the ground before me, sending the man slipping backwards to the floor in the blink of an eye.
I desperately pulled myself to my feet with the aid of a nearby trolley and made a dash for the bottled water. Like a battle-hardened solider I lobbed bottle after bottle of 650ml Natural Spring Water towards the offending customer, who now lay like a battered corpse amongst a pile of sugar. Though the bottles served as a means to contain the man I knew I would need more damaging firepower if I wished to subdue and incapacitate him.
My best hope rested in the 15L Spring Water Jugs. With fatigue and exhaustion plaguing my muscles I struggled desperately to raise the 15L jug above my head but I never once considered giving up. As I towered over the now trembling man, jug high above my head, I yelled "I'm afraid we're all out of breadcrumbs, sir!" and dropped the jug onto his head, knocking him unconscious.
Needless to say I was promoted the next day and I'm now managing the grocery section, not to mention we now stock breadcrumbs at the registers.



'I am really cautious about my ps3.
Quote:
Yes, my friends ps3 broke.

He came round mine explaining that his PS3 just died for no reason.
I asked him if he used any buggerd games, dvds, or blu-ray. He said no. I asked him if he dropped it etc. No, no no.

So I went round his to have a look. He had put black duct tape over the air vents. All of them.

I said 'why have you put duct tape over the vents?'

He replys with this:

'I am really cautious about my ps3. I really look after it. I don't want dust getting inside it so I covered up the holes to stop dust from getting in.'


I was in tears.

A Dutchman evades jail after being accused of having sh*gging sheep. The judge said that the man should not be kept behind baahs ! Boom, Boom.

True story apart from the judges' comment. The real reason was that they had no way of knowing whether the sheep consented or not .
