Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

HDX Dragon Contest Update and New Prize Added

There is a little over a full day left in the contest, and I know many of you are hard at work wrapping up your videos. Two videos have been posted so far, so I wanted to leave some general feedback based on what I've seen.

Some additional things to keep in mind when making your videos:

  • Please try to keep them between 3 and 4 minutes.
  • Please make them a bit more personal. Just because I didn't want to see a monologue, doesn't mean I don't want to see the Faces of Windows Vista.
  • I don't necessarily want to see a demo of Vista, although it won't disqualify you from the contest. I want to see how Vista makes your life better. Things like better wireless networking, mobile devices, etc.
  • PLEASE make them funny!!!

Also, people have been unable to leave comments with URLs in them on the WindowsNow channel, so just private-message me on the Channel, and I'll get your video posted.

One final note: The contest ends at 6pm EST Sunday (tomorrow). The winner will be announced just before Midnight EST on Sunday.

Good Luck!
