As if giving away a Drobo isn’t exciting enough, the folks over at Data Robotics agreed to spice things up by giving away not one but two Drobos in this special contest! That’s right, if there are enough entries within the 5 day period, Drobo will give away two Drobos to some lucky participants! So, be sure to rock the vote! That means to let your friends know by not only re-tweeting the message, but also telling your stories as to why you need a Drobo here on the blog or over on their Facebook page!
You may also notice that I dropped a hidden time bomb above – we’ve gotten an extension through Friday! That means, if you haven’t had a chance yet, there’s still time! It also means that if for any reason you forgot to register, there’s still a window of opportunity for you to do that until tomorrow midnight! Only 48 hours (roughly) left, so don’t forget to participate for your chance to win! Thanks to Drobo for both allowing the extension and for adding a second Drobo to the giveaway. As a refresher, here’s the contest particulars again:
2. Re-tweet the following text message over on Twitter:
RT I’ve registered to win a #Drobo with @CBJason at http://bit.ly/qdqg6Z
3. Share your best story about why you need a Drobo on the blog here (my blog) and on the Drobo Facebook page! (Note the embedded links… 🙂 )
4. Don’t forget to register with Drobo in case your name is picked – if you’re not registered, you can’t win!
5. All entries must be submitted no later than midnight MDT on Friday!
Keep posting the stories – these are great to read. As a reminder here though too – I am not picking the winner personally, it’s done by a random drawing from all the registrations. After drawing two names, these will be cross-checked against the Twitter messages and such, so keep ’em coming! Some of the stories I’ve read are quite fascinating, ranging from small business owners running retouching businesses, to poetic story lines, and even PhD students working on some pretty fascinating topics that require massive storage needs.
