Hey, I won! ... scrolls ... So did Kitewife!
I realized that you did win, 2 times!
Congratulations, you get all the stuff, and I sit here.
In the corner.

Sulking.
Time there is still, youngling.
Yeah, but I can't really think of great ideas. I work really hard, but I don't get much. Well, I got a patch and stickers for helping out the community, but those Robot T-shirts... ahhhh!!!! You must have like 3, or something. You won two times in this contest... lucky. I will have to try harder.
Carry a notepad around with you, jot down any ideas that occur to you.

(Oh, and it's five shirts, plus a Leatherman and several patches)

Kiteman, you have a lot of instructables stuff. (I'm jealous), But anyway, nice job!
I use Freemind an open source mind mapping software to keep track and categorize my random ideas and to-do lists. It's easy to shuffle things around and re-categorize my ideas. Lots of times little seemingly stupid individual ideas can become one really big stupid idea. And sometimes, with enough mediocre, bad, or really strange ideas a true gem stands out.

But, it's the same concept as the notepad... just keep track of your ideas (good, bad or indifferent) and you'll be amazed at what you can come up with. Sometimes the perfect catalyst for great ideas is a brain-dump.
Thanks for rubbing it in, Kiteman.
> big eejit grin < Like I said, there's loads of time yet - I've just celebrated my second year here.
