Geeks With Blogs
Jason Townsend

So I got the below email on 10/1.  (You can tell I am email backlogged)

Hello Jason,
    Congratulations. You won 1st Prize in the September 2008 Contest. As you may know, a lot of people competed, but only a few won. Nicely done! Please also keep in mind that your prize is not just a stupid, geeky gift, but it's also a symbol to represent your contributions to the development community. When folks ask you how you won, you can tell them that it was by helping out other geeks. Be proud and brag.
Below you will find the details of your prize.

nuclear war USB hub

Had enough of being beaten into the submission by other USB Missile Launcher-wielding workmates? Just had a bad day with the boss? Then it's time to fall back on the ultimate sanction: the USB nuclear armageddon button. One push and... boom.
The unit - which conveniently doubles up as a four-port USB hub during peacetime - is equipped with a launch key, suitably military-looking toggle switches and, of course, the big red button, tucked under a protective flap to avoid an accidental apocalypse.
Should the balloon go up, however, and the button is pushed, the unit beeps out your four-minute warning to reach suitable shelter before... the end.


Kindest regards,
David Silverlight
