Episode 100 Celebration Give Away

If you haven’t heard episode 100 then stop and go listen!  At the end of the show we list all the vendors that have so graciously offered their gear and software to us to give away.  This is the largest give away that I have done and one of the largest I’ve seen in a long while.

Also, if you haven’t taken the time to look over the Deals post please do so.  There are several add-in authors and vendors offering up huge discounts but they are for a limited time.  Don’t wait for the give away.  Get out there and take advantage of the deals while you can.

Before I go any further I would like to once again thank these vendors for supporting this podcast and site.  Without them we wouldn’t have anyone to talk to!  Please consider these guys in your future purchases.  These are vendors I trust and use.  I’ve said this many times on the show but I won’t put products in front of you that I wouldn’t buy myself.


These prizes are available to the continental United States only unless otherwise specified.

You need to be a registered forum member with 10 or more posts.  If you haven’t already registered go ahead and do so and add to the community.  Fluff posts will be deleted.  Don’t just post a bunch of junk or the mods will run you off!

The e-mail address on your forums registration will be the address I use to contact you.

One winner per household only.

I reserve the right to change or add to these rules at any time.  Why?  Because I’m paying the postage!

    I would really like to win the ARTiGO A1100 or IoSafe, but would be appreciative of anything and want to say thanks again to the sponsors who donated the gear.

    I am running WHS v1 on a Frankenbuild. Thanks MikeT.

    Hey guys, been listening to the show for quite a while now. In fact, the show inspired me to build a rack-mounted WHS in my basement:

    >Case – Ark 4U-500-CA Black 4U Rackmount Case

    >PSU – Corsair CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V

    >Mobo – Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H

    >CPU – AMD Sempron 140 Sargas 2.7GHz

    >Memory – G. Skill 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (2 pairs)

    >HD – Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS 1TB (2)

    >Optical – Lite-On Black 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM

    I've also got a home-brewed HTPC I recently finished. I hope to add 2 more HTPC's over the next year or two, with some HDHomeRun Prime units in the basement equipment rack.

    I'd love a shot at the KeepVault or mControl licenses. I've already got most of the core add-ins (thanks to this show) for my WHS. Something fun like home automation would be a great enhancement, and I could always use some off-site backup.

    Keep up the great work!

    I really enjoy your show, congrats on 100!

    I actually haven’t gotten a chance to technically join the WHS family, as right now I have an old machine that I do manual backups to. I realize that it doesn’t have the polish of a WHS machine, but that is what I am working towards!

    As for the giveaway, I would love to have any of these tools that would start me out on the right foot. I am hoping to pull the trigger on a WHS machine soon and am beginning to spec out my machine. So, put me down for whatever would get me going in the best direction.
