NASA Contest update, updated 2nd March 09 Answered

I thought I'd update you all on the NASA contest.

Since I'd almost forgotten I'd even entered, it probably means you've forgotten as well.

Thor's Shotgun is currently in 57th position, with 243 views.

The Cuttlefish Drive is currently 18th place, with 942 views.

More views from you, dear readers, will of course improve my results.

(You may consider this to be an invitation to spam people...)

UPDATE

I received an email today:

Is your entry to the Create the Future Design Contest among the top winners?

Find out on Tuesday, March 10 at 11:00 am Eastern.
Join Tech Briefs Media Group and SolidWorks Corp. for a live Webcast announcing the Grand Prize, Category, and Popular Vote winners of the seventh annual contest.
Speakers will include Jeff Ray, CEO of SolidWorks, and Linda Bell, Editorial Director of NASA Tech Briefs.

Register today for this complimentary Webinar at:

Good luck and thanks for participating!

Unfortunately, I will be in a parents' meeting during the "webinar", so you might find out before me...

Wow. Please, tell anybody who cares that I give full licence for anybody else to use the idea - I'm not after profiting from it.

Unless the rules have changed, you can't patent an idea that has already been disclosed.

Whoa! Has somebody gone through and flagged every comment that refers to my name, and then they've actually been removed?? Plasmana, Keith-Kid, it's not such a big deal, just a personal preference (I mean, if I wanted it to be secret, I wouldn't have linked to stuff with my real name on it, would I??)

Not flagged, we removed it ourselves.....even if they got flagged, I deleted all of my comments by my own action, they were not deleted by staff.

Haha, that really is true if you think about it. We don't even know this guy.

For all we know, all of this is an elaborate hoax. The whole guy. And Kitewife (though who the person with the long fingernails in her baby blanket ible would be kind of hard to explain...haha...)too.

For all we know, he is an FBI investigator posing as a painfully British chap.

For all we know, um...yeah, that about covers it.

Now, I think he's being truthful-but, as Nachomahma so aptly put it, you just never know on the interwebs.

Sorry, kiteman! No offense! Not calling you a liar! Honest!

Haven't you been watching the news?

A bunch of terrorists just got off in UK court after being filmed using a syringe to replace the contents of a bottle of Gatoraid with an explosive mixture of Tang and hydrogen peroxide.

BBC story - scroll down for diagram of the bombs.

STOP. CALLING. HIM. THAT.

He has said before he picked a nom de plume so as to be anonymous. As in, nobody know him. As in, so he couldn't get fired for disagreeing with his boss.

That was some time ago - the forums where I expressed those opinions got closed down by the BBC - now it's a matter of personal preference.

I don't know who flagged all those references to my name, I assume they meant it for the best, but it wasn't such a big deal.

If you keep adding to that sequence, the text gets smaller and smaller.
