Its that time of the year again, where we give back to the community who has supported us for the last year.

Ok so here is what you have to do to enter the contest:

Contest is open world wide and its open to everyone including staff.

Send an email to [email protected] with the following:

Username, Full system specs, Full contact information which means name, mailing address, and Phone Number. I want to be very clear here, if you fail to include all of your info you are out of the contest. This always includes sending 2, 3 or 4 follow up emails with everything provided you missed in your first email. If you can't take the time to get the first email correct you shouldn't be entering. You have 23 full days to get it right the first time.

Lastly, for the Grand Prize, its important because the winner will get a phone call from me, Christmas day with the good news, if you fail to answer the phone you are screwed, so in your entry make sure its a number I can reach you at, even if its your Grand Parents house haha. If you get a strange number or a blocked number calling you on Christmas day you may want to answer :) But again, if you don't answer your SOL.

If you are caught cheating or sending the another entry from the same IP you are out of the contest as well.

There is an auto reply set to let you know if your entry has arrived so check your spam filter for a response if you don't see it.

Contest will end on the evening of the 24th. There is still a few companies I am waiting to hear back from so I will update the thread as more prizes are added.

Good luck everyone, and happy holidays.

Before I send, just so it doesn't get rejected, what should the subject line be?


'OCC Contest'?


If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day
