How do we get the t-shirt? I've won prizes before, but I haven't got a message yet or anything. Oh, and sorry if it's just taking you guys a while. I know you're really busy with all the good work you guys do. I just wanted to see if there was something I was missing.

congrats

*sigh* now I have to go out a purchase that book.

Oh, BTW, in case you saw my entry, and that picture of the recorder unit I didn't use? The one from RS.....well, I came across one, while cleaning up today.....same box, same part number, it cost $12 more back 12 years ago, BUT is had it's own mic (not like this one I got recently, that used the speaker), and is actually hackable. I might see if I can get it working well and add a short video to my entry.....it is too late for the contest, but the instructable will be "better" with it. Just in case someone ever wants to try it :-)
I must say, I have the book that was the prize, and it's definitely worth buying.
I have heard rumors :-)
