I just hope I sent my responding email to the right address. I remembered the contest as I was stepping out of the shower. I ran downstairs with my bath robe on. I must have sounded incoherent on the phone. But I won, that's all that matters. Yeah Genii!!!

I say 'thank you' as well. I almost didn't get through with the crappy cell reception. Richard kept patiently saying, "Hellloooo?"

Thanks, Richard - a very cool gesture (and a nice distraction from studying Purkinje fibers)!

Everyone needs to send an email with their name and address to genii@geniimagazine.com

Some people who won in previous contests earlier this week have not done so. If you don't do that, you won't receive anything!

In general, about 6PM depending on commute. (But obviously that's for those who work "normal" business hours.)

Got stuck taking my daughter to the ice-skating rink for the afternoon, so NO contest today. Fatherly duties come first.

Sorry!

The mailman just delivered Paul Gertner's "Silver and Steel," the book I won in the holiday contest, on the Genii forum. Genii really is the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks again Richard. :)
