    What's with this newsletter silliness? I already have your RSS feed. Newsletters belong in 1995.

    Just unselect everything if you dont want it :)

    slipperyskip - we've looked into it and it seems you are absolutely correct and it was a complete oversight on our part. We're very, very sorry. It was completely unintentional. As you can imagine there are a LOT of mods that pass through bit-tech and CustomPC and we've rounded up more than last year even.

    Ingraham was finished in 08 but it was featured in 09 here and CustomPC.

    However we're trying to get hold of Jamie - our coder - because he needs to change the voting page from the backend. It's hardcoded to tie into the signup page that we use to make sure there's 1 vote per person. No one in Editorial can access it. So while I could drop another page of your case in, noone can still vote for it :( I think he's biking in Wales or Oxford somewhere so I'm not sure if he's even got access to a PC :( Again we're very sorry and it's nothing personal!

    EDIT: OH!! I just realised YOU did Ingraham as well.

    Well we only allow ONE entry per person, even if they've been featured twice and it's down to Editorial to decide which we think is.. better. So, you've still a chance to win stash! :p Im sorry if you think your more recent one is better than Ingraham, they are both excellent and MOTY worthy, but we have to make the tough calls sometimes.

    Only one vote :grr::grr::grr:

    There isnt a single nominee that I dont like, and I am struggling to decide between my top two.

    Cygnus X1 or Neptunes Trident

    hmmmm

    Cygnus X1 or Neptunes Trident

    Neptunes Trident or Cygnus X1

    Cygnus X1 or Neptunes Trident

    Neptunes Trident or Cygnus X1

    arrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I think I will go with the one I would like to own the most, "Neptunes Trident". Because not only is it well thought out and well put together with some unique features but I like the fact that the monitor, keyboard and mouse all match, and it is a real gaming machine.

    Congratulations to all nominees and good luck also. Roll on 2010 and I cant wait to see what you guys have in store.:thumb:

    I'm torn between Flow and Phinix. Flow looks BITCHING as a desktop background.

    I can't take my eyes of Cygnus X. Just love it! But it was hard to choose, all the other mods were also great, loved the small details.

    All incredible pieces of work, show skill i can only dream of posessing when it comes to PC Modding....really seperates the men from the boys.

    Cygnus stands out...........its a work of art that should be in Tate Modern.

    Again, struggling to see why Overclocked Orange was included...

    Great design, brilliantly thought out and executed, fantastic machine, absence of modding/fabricating by the owner.

    MOTM for May 09, Raders Drives in CPC June 09... And it was modded. Just not by him, really. I think he braided the cables and spray-painted the mobo heatsinks.

    Just unselect all the options and you wont get sent any. It was the same last year and we had several thousand entries still :)

    We need a signup to stop people spamming the competition which we've suffered before :(

    Love the Cygnus X1. Some tough compition out there. Some surprising cases up for the vote though. If you read some of the worklogs it's nearly all bought parts and stuff(painting/lasercutting) done for them. Shame really. Makes the otherslike the Cygnus even better though.
    Happy Christmas and happy holidays!
