Another Contest, Round the World Free

Go to www.hpfun.com

A little cumbersome but no USA restrictions!

Can't get it either. When was the first Round the World Free contest (to make this "another" contest)?

Sorry, in my haste I left out the "u" in fun. Try it now! It's an HP site and I guess some will find it fun. That's www.hpfun.com

kyklin...I think he really means it's another contest to enter (comma) and it happens to be an Around the World contest.

(hey doc, now I'm your interpreter too...)

Thanks shadow, yes- and kyklin is one sharp cookie with his English too. This is especially noteworthy as he was a Chem major as I was. I'm embarrassed though, since I had an English minor as well!

Doc, for the record... Kyklin is named Ken, and he's a fine gentleman and member of the Flyer Talk Community.

It would be nice if you won the trip because you and Danielle can have a wonderful wonderful trip.

Pguptha... that story made me very very depressed. BLEH!

Thanks for the correction Catman. I actually know recall that I did see his photo. Very embarassing for me indeed! I apologize kyklin, or Ken, as you prefer. I'm very sorry and I edited the above entry to reflect the correction noted.
