Cutting right to the chase: reigngoddess is the 250G winner and aoi_neko is the 160G winner!! Congratulations!! ^_^
I have all the 160G drives filled and now working on filling the 250G drives. It takes several hours to fill them so it will be a few days before all are done. I will be notifying the winners by email in the next day or two with the link to claim their prize. I have a nice stack of drive boxes to reuse which should work out nicely. ^_^
Now, about the actual length of the contest: It turns out we only have 8 fully functional 160G drives. Derobert tested each drive extensively before sending them to me. He determined that there were a few 160G drives that had bad sectors that were not recovering nicely. To be fair to all, this means that we will have to cut the Donation Drive Contest down to only 8 weeks running. I will have to figure out the best way to distribute the remaining drives after this contest concludes.
Just so you know, the 250G drive went for less than $100 this week. If you are on that border line, you may want to take that into consideration if you would like one of the last two remaining drives in this contest.
Thank you again and good luck to all!!
