Wait who won the random prize i couldn't see cause it was to small. But anyways i thought kite man would win at least one. And congratulations to the winners.
Struck down by an illogical faith in the Law of Averages... Hey-ho, stiff upper lip, brew another pot of tea, corporal, tally-ho... >!< I've got two ideas for the Hallowe'en competition, just waiting for some Health and Safety info on UV LEDs.

You already have a Leatherman! Honestly, I thought one of yours would come up as well. It was a one-in-four chance!
There were only 4 random authors? Or are you referring to the fact he had 4 ibles, and there were 16-or-so ibles in the "pot" total?

Kiteman submitted 5 instructables out of a total of roughly 20 that were eligible.
Not only do I have a Leatherman, I also have a son who wants his own. It's his birthday tomorrow, it would have been nice to win him his own knife.

Marc92, hes my friend. We were just joking at lunch today how the only way he could win is if he won the random prize. (He said that, not me)

For some reason, every time I tell someone about ibles/an ible contest, they win something... I must be lucky :P
