Just over a week ago we announced that in a fit of lovin’ for my readers, the fine folks at Data Robotics were giving away one DROBO. I waxed poetic and enthusiastic about how much I love my Drobo (I have two – an original USB model, and a current FW800 model, both sitting on my desk), mentioned how vulnerable our data is and how much better I sleep at night knowing my stuff is backed up so well. I invited you to leave a simple confession – I WANT A DROBO. And then 1053 nutty freeloaders came out of the woodwork with the requisite confession as well as poems, limericks, haiku, flattery, and plain old bribes 🙂 I’ve had quite a few giveaways here and this was by far the craziest response. Well I’ve closed the comments, consulted the oracle at Random.org and I’m thrilled to announce the winner. Gale, from PaperWhimsy.com – drop me an email with your address and I’ll have your magic black-box of back-up goodness sent direct from DROBO. Congrats!
But wait! There’s more. Persistent bugger that I am, I asked the folks at Drobo if they’d give the rest of us a discount and they were more than happy to extend a $50 discount to all my readers. The discount code to use when checking out at Drobo.com is PIXELS. This will work for any Drobo or Drobo bundles (with drives) but not for the DroboPro.This coupon code is valid for 30 days and expires November 16th, 2009,
Congrats to Gale, HUGE thanks to Drobo, and also to you who played along and filled my comments box to bustin’. Have a great weekend.
