New Contest: Win a Free Bauer-Puntu Computer!

Oh yes you read that correctly! I got my grubby little hands on a little mini computer, and I am going to be giving that mofo away free and clear to one lucky winner! This puppy will come with Bauer-Puntu Linux 9.04 pre-installed for some awesome hacking fun!

I will run this contest just like the last one which is via Twitter! It just makes things easy for everyone! Entering is really simple, and takes only a few seconds of your time. If you are a Twitter user you know how following someone, and retweeting a message only takes seconds of time, but in this case those seconds can get you a mutha friggin' computer!

All you have to do to enter is
  1. Follow me on Twitter: (@ElDiPablo)
  2. Retweet about this contest: (Click here to retweet correctly)
Doing those two very easy things will get you one entry in the contest! YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TO ENTER! If you want another entry all you have to do is subscribe to my RSS feed, and post a link to a screen shot of Bauer-Power in your RSS reader in the comments. If you want, yet another entry (Yes, three chances to win) write up a blog post linking back to this contest. Post a link to your blog post in the comments!

I will add each entry to an Excel spread sheet, and I will use a random number generator to pick a winner. Drawing will be July 3rd at 2:00PM Pacific time via Twitter.

So what kind of computer will you all be competing for? A used Compaq EVO D51e with a 2.0Ghz Pentum IV Processor and 1 GB of RAM. Sure, the specs aren't top of the line, but it runs Bauer-Puntu Linux like a son-of-a-bitch! Plus, it's small as hell and free (So stop complaining!)

In interest of full disclosure, I obtained this machine from my current employer (Who shall remain nameless) as we recently cleaned out our store room and designated a number of machines to be sent to the recycling center. My boss, who got approval from his boss, said that we could pick through these obsolete machines to take home. The only stipulation? We can't sell these for a profit (Which I'm not, I am giving it away). I have received a signed receipt from management authorizing me to have this computer.

With that out of the way, here is a picture of the computer:

What are you waiting for? Start retweeting, and tell all your friends!

NOTE: Contest Open to U.S. Residents Only
