So, back before PAX I held a simple contest. I got a lot of neat stuff from PAX and have been mulling over what I should give away as a prize. I finally settled on awarding one of the fellows below:



The winner can choose which color he/she wants of the Green, Red and Orange Knights (I gave the Blue to my sister).

Oh, right. The winner. Well, in order to be as fair as possible I wrote a small program that would take the list of commenters, place them in randomly generated order and then randomly remove one name at a time until only one Dtoider was left standing. Embedded is the video of the first and only execution of this program.


EDIT: Apparently Dtoid video expects a 4:3 ratio and doesn't do any math to elegantly adjust it. Therefore, the video is a bit squashed. But you still get the idea.

Thanks for participating. I had a blast at PAX. I'm sorry for those for could not attend. I hope to to see you next year.
