This month we're giving away a copy of Windows XP Pro, Upgrade Version.
But we're going to make you work for it a bit in order to locate the URL to enter the drawing. And, of course, you must be a subscriber in order to enter the drawing.
So here's the deal. Below is a link to the start page.
Once you start...you'll need to find FIVE items within TechTrax and/or MouseTrax.com to provide you with the answers you need to move on. Each page is multiple choice. Hints are given to help you figure out where to look for the answers. Choose the correct answer and you can move on to the next question. Get it wrong, and you have to try again. Answer all five questions correctly and you get the link to enter the drawing.
BUT! Although we don't want to make it too difficult for you, we also don't want to make it too easy. And since you could simply keep clicking all the answers until you get it right...we've added a little caveat to the game. If you should get two answers WRONG in the course of making your selections...you'll get kicked out and have to start over!
So in order to save yourself time...you'll want to actually go find the correct answers to save the hassle of having to keep starting over. Sure, you can still be a lucky guesser, but what fun would that be?
The drawing will be held on Halloween (which is Monday, October 31, 2005, here in this part of the world). So with any luck...you may get a nice, little treat if we pull your name.
But remember...if we send you the winning notice and your email is full so that the notice bounces, we will choose another winner. And you also have to reply within 24 hrs of the email in order to be the winner.
Note! And upgrade version means that you need to have a previous copy of Windows already on your system in order to allow this upgrade to install. Also know that this version does not have the SP 2 patch included, so you'll need to add the updates after you install.
