Out of 72 re-tweets the random number generator chose number 9 which belonged to the craziest Chuy of them all, CrazyChuy1. Huzzah! I have sent him the notification tweet but I don't see him on our member list so I'll have to wait until he emails me.
This week I am going to try really hard to tweet more often so that there are more messages for you folks to re-tweet. The second week was only 7 days long instead of 9, but I only tweeted 16 times instead of 33 times like the first week.

Out of 59 re-tweets the random number generator chose number 52 which belonged to ultimaone who is known as simply Ultima here. Congratulations man! He joined the contest late this week and his winning re-tweet was of the last tweet of this week which I left after midnight last night. I have sent him the notification tweet and I will be sending him an email very soon.
Three weeks and prizes down, two more to go! Who will walk away with the prizes? Could be you so stay tuned to find out!

I was just talking to Ultima (our latest winner) and the subject turned to the site redesign that Mike has been working on (off and on) for a good while. I attempted to find the post where I linked to it, but I could not find it, thanks to our craptacular archive system. I did however remember the URL for it.
Please note that these pages are not fully functional and are merely cosmetic. Here is what the new main page may look like, and what a typical video card page may look like.

Easter_Hunter has been participating in the contest since it began and his number finally came up this morning. The hunter will finally claim his prize. I have sent him the email and now I await his reply. I wonder if Easter_Hunter will choose Toki Tori from Steam. The game features a baby chick that must collect all the eggs in each level. It sounds very... Eastery.

Somehow the Radeon HD 5550 escaped my unblinking gaze (it pierces flesh!) but I have now added it to our database. We got 6 of them linked to Newegg so far but make sure to check the memory type before you buy. The card can come with DDR2, GDDR3 or GDDR5 so make sure you grab the one you want. According to the very few reviews that I found, the HD 5550 is slower than the GT 240 and HD 5570 but faster than the HD 5450. Shocking right?!

Snehagj (also known as Sneha Tammineedi) is our final contest winner! There were only 28 re-tweets this week and she had 16 of them so I was not very surprised that one of her numbers came up. I have sent her a tweet to let her know she won and I have already heard back from her. Once she signs up for (and installs) Steam she will let me know what game she wants.
To all our contest winners, remember to use your $50 Sideshow Collectibles gift cards before the end of the year on an eligible item on this page. I will remind you all again via a news post in December. Also, I would love to know what you folks end up getting from Sideshow so please drop me a line when you decide.
