thanks guys.

I think there is something wrong with the polling. its been all ove the place. At one point i had 91, then 86 for a while, now at 85. That just doesnt make sense...

oh, and thanks for coming back from the dead moo to help. long time no see.

Dude! Good Video! That makes me home sick...a grew up a "rat" at the "Drop Zone" (all of the kids of skydivers were called rats)

My Dad, Mom, Uncles all jumped...My grandfather still does!

Damn...made me feel like a kid again...

I think the numbers that they show are the percent of votes. if you add them all up it = 100. but yeah you have fallen to 34% i voted like 10 or 11 times 4 u.

no idea to be honest. They have just said a free one, and the whole thing has been pretty informal.

the best kind, A FREE ONE
thats all i need to know. Not like put too much work into this. Just submitted a video i've already had sitting here

the " i need a laptop" kid is pretty hardcore!
Yeah, but looking at all the things in the vid, clearly he comes from a lot of money, does he really need a free lappy?

Looks like now you need to sign into youtube and vote using the rating system on there. Seems a little odd, and im getting screwed out of my previous votes, but i'd appreciate if everyone could get me 5 stars!!

Thanks guys!

well, its getting to that time. I'm up by a bit, but if you all can give it another round of voting that would be awesome. 5 stars for me, 1star for the others!

you do know that if you win this laptop, you are obligated to cover it in Spyder stickers, right?

Team Ramrod

Tell your friends!!

Just got this message back from then after sending one asking what was going on:

I can personally guarantee to you that this contest has not been swept under the rug. Actually, I personally am picking up a laptop when I return to the Pembroke area next week. I am currently on perfessional development courses in Ottawa.

A winner was chosen by the voting process.

I apologize for the lack of communication on our part. I hope you can accept my heart-felt apology. I had assumed that the winner was notified. I will be contacting my Manager to have him make an official announcement.

Some of the College's policies do indicate that we wait until after our audit date (November 1) to ensure that the student is still enrolled in a program etc. This was our first "kick at the can" so to speak and we have learned a lot and moving forward will make changes to ensure student satisfaction.

If you have any other questions, please contact me. Thank you for your message.

Just to confirm - you were the winner.

So, Cool! thanks everyone. Lets see if they follow through now.

now you just need some SOC stickers!
