Stephen Moore and rudy, who both correctly divined that "the contest post" was the 500th on the blog.
By the time rudy got here, there were already two new DWWTWT? posts since the contest post had gone up, which made his successful entry all the more remarkable (although, in fairness, it appears he might've assumed that my counting skills were deficient <g>)..
So, Stephen and rudy, please contact me and I'll get your prize to you -- an MS Press book of your choice.
Did the subtle hint in the timestamp of the post help you?
Thanks to all for their entries, especially the lighthearted ones. Maybe we'll try this again in another 500 posts..
