Congratulations to everyone. These were pretty cool. I think that to get the best Instructables out of everyone, these mini-fast contests are awesome. I am looking forward to the ones in the future!

That's the idea- it's a low barrier to entry on a simple subject with broad appeal. It's more a question of having a well-executed particularly bright idea than doing something hugely involved. The longer contests take care of that. ;)

Exactly. In retrospect, I should have posted my idea for making magnets "stick" to stainless steel fridges. But I was busy like crazy :P I remember when I first was watching these contests take place, and I thought I'd need something outstanding to win, but since this is such a small userbase, I bet something I could come up with would be decent. :P

Ooo. I won a stylish T-Shirt and USB thing. I'm really pleased. It's very rare I win anything. Well done everyone, and a big thank-you to everyone who rated/viewed my Instructable and left a kind comment. It was greatly appreciated.
