GNC-2009-11-13 #527 Lets have a Mini Contest!

Posted by geeknews at 1:41 AM on November 13, 2009

Ok Mini contest someplace in the show, gonna make you do a little scavenger hunt hope you participate. Big thanks to Jeffrey and Sam who split the prize on suggestions for the Video portion of the show. While the implementation did not go perfect tonight we will get it dialed in over the coming weeks. Huge number of ideas all of them good, just need a banker as a friend to implement them all. Your show host needed sleep and a Red Bull neither which he has had much this week so have fun with Toddisms.

Ongoing support by these fine sponsors keep the lights on your support is appreciated!
