Email: Password: Remember me

I wanna have some fun today. Not that I don’t have fun most every day, but this time I’m gonna drag you in on it too!

So here’s the deal. I have this nifty little SanDisk Cruzer 8GB Flash Drive and I’m going to give it away to some lucky guy or gal. Brand spankin’ new in the wrapper and everything.

How do you win? The rules are simple – just leave a comment below telling me why YOU are the one who deserves to win.

Easy as pie. OK, it’s actually easier than pie, at least for me, since I couldn’t bake my way out of a paper bag. Or something like that.

Anyhow, we’ll shut down the comments sometime next Tuesday around noon or so and pick our winner at random. Now, we’re gonna send you an e-mail when you win, so make sure you are looking for it, OK? If you don’t respond to our e-mail within 48 hours, you forfeit the prize and we’re gonna give it to someone else. Got it?


So, go on, click the Comments link below and tell me why you are oh-so-deserving of this amazing little flash drive.

Have fun :)


PS – Hey, by the way, we DO moderate comments to keep the spammers from tricking you into a lifetime supply of Viagra, so don’t freak out if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I’ll get to it. Promise. Right after my nap, and once I’m done walking the dog, and I think the cat just choked up a furball…

Where was I?

PPS – By the way, if you put a link to a website into your post in any way, shape or form, I’ll probably think it’s spam and toss it into the trash-o-la. Just FYI :)

    Hey, I’m 85 years old and have never won anything. Don’t you think it’s about time I did? May be my last chance.

  4. Clayton says:

    I just need a flash drive………Clay

  5. BRIAN STICHT says:

    I would like to win the Flash drive because I need it to act as a back up drive for my computer. I do not have a large Hard Drive and cannot afford a bigger one or an external Hard Drive. Pulesse!!! Thank you.

  6. chucky2a says:

    I would love to have this flash drive because it would make it easier for me to do the small backups of information that is really necessary.

  7. Dan McCray says:

    My system is old and has been revamped through over four generations of Windows, and, like me is wearing out. So, I need to save and move critical information, my family tree, almost 2000 names, and tons of photos before the ultimate crash. Plus I am going back east, where I was born and raised but haven’t seen in twenty some years, I’d like to carry some photos with me to show old friends and family

  8. Norris Landry says:

    I really could use a flash drive in my work as a minister. I’m always taking work with me and always need something to carry it on. the flash drive would help tremendously.

  9. Thelma Thompson says:

    I have alot of grandkids and one of them is Graduating this May. So I need it to hold alot of of pictures that I will be taking. I enjoy the whole newsletter and I read it every day. I have learned alot of stuff from your tips that I would have not known, had it not been for your newsletter and I recommend your site to everybody I talk to. And I am very pleased with the products I have ordered. Keep up the good work…u guys!!!

  10. Billy Graydon says:

    I have been reading every newsletter you send for nearly a year, now, and I love them. (Trust me, it would be longer than that had I known earlier!)
    As a programmer, web designer, as well as an avid computer user, I must say that they have helped me out of many a jam.
    A new USB key would certainly help me with the 6 websites, as well as numerous software titles I maintain. Oh, yeah, and did I mention I’m 15?

  11. Vicki says:

    I am a computer teacher and my 5th grade students are going to each create a PowerPoint slide of our local area. This flash drive would be a nifty way of getting all of their source files (60+) into one location so that I can join them into a single PowerPoint presentation. This file will then be used by the students to explain our area to another country. They will be “visiting” this country via the Polycam.

  12. Stephen Thorn says:

    I’m the resource coordinator for an upcoming class reunion and we need donations of all kinds to be used as door prizes, raffles, etc. A great flash drive would be a wonderful prize for one of these. We are creating a program that will list all the contributors and sponsors (businesses and individuals) who have donated goods or funds to make the reunion wonderful. This would be a great bit of advertising for WorldStart’s website, business, and image. I hope that WorldStart will award me the flash drive because I know some lucky alumnus would love to win it!

  13. Russ Smith says:

    If I win then I can give it to my wife and she might stop taking mine all the time.

  14. Rick Campbell says:

    Hello Steve, I am not saying i deserve to win as i have never won anything, but if i ever did winning something like that would be the ultimate prize, as i have friends and yes i have sent them your web site and i know my mom receives your newsletter as well, especially your Just for Grins. But what i would do is place security programs and scum remover programs on it. The price i would charge them… Simple!! I would
    tell them how i got it and tell them to sign up for your newsletter and learn some more about computers by reading your newsletter.
    If they needed help again i would then charge them a very moderate fee and again tell them if they sign up for your newsletter i will drop the fee to zero. I have learned a lot from you and i guess a friend of yours Clif Sipe from Techie Buzz and his newsletters Clif notes.
    So anyhow even if i do not win thanks for the great news letters.

    • Judy says:

      I think everyone deserves to win something in their lifetime and I admit if we only receive just one win I am already ahead of the game. I once won a 5# bag of flour on a phone in contest to a radio station. With that I baked lots of cookies for my 4 boys and their dad. Some time later I won again at the same radio station. This time it was a watch… my choice of a man’s or woman’s. I didn’t have a watch but my husband convinced me that he really, really needed one more so guess who got that prize. I lost out on the watch and a few years later I lost the husband too, to another woman. Actually I kicked him out when I found out about the other woman. That was back in 1976 and though I did meet and marry the prince of all men, I have never won another contest. After all these years I think I deserve to win just because I have survived for nearly 74 years, have 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren!

  15. Katie says:

    Oh my gosh! I really could use a flash drive. I have so much stuff on my computer(way to much stuff!) that I could save. I wish I had an external HD but can’t afford that so a flash drive would be a big help!

  16. Alan Caffey says:

    I have been hanging on your every newsletter for years now. I’ve even bought a few items from your store( okay, well, a couple anyway). I can’t wait for my next newsletter. And now, your gonna have a blog, too? Absolutely AWESOME!
    I deserve the Cruzer 8G because it would hold such a special place in my home. Right next to my laptop heart! This is what I could use for my music, photos, eBooks, business, etc., etc. The list is almost endless.
    Thanks soooo much for the good blog news. I can’t wait!

  17. Ron says:

    I have been wanting one for a long time, but something else comes up to buy. It would be kind of you to pick me; I will put good use of it. Thanks.

  18. Ron says:

    I want and need a flash drive. I beg for your attention to pick me for your winner. Thanks!

  19. Irenkè says:

    After reading all these comments I can’t imagine how you will be able to decide who “deserves” a SanDisk Cruzer flash drive. There are so many people who really could use one and there are so many seniors (including me, I’ll be 79 on Easter Sunday) who would love to have one. How about putting all the names in a hat and drawing one out to be the winner ….. just a suggestion. You must be pleased to know how much your Newsletters are appreciated for helping so many people with their computers. You sell a lot of good stuff too. Thanks Worldstart.

  20. Pradeep Roy Choudhury says:

    I think I deserve it as people like me staying in a remote village were able to receive mails from IT Guru like you for the past 3-4 years thereby upgrading computer-handling-skill of novices like me.

    With regards and best wishes,

    Pradeep Roy Choudhury

    i am a missionary and travel constantly to other countries. So far I have been in 29 countries around this old world. As you know a large section of the viruses are created in other countries. Why risk getting a bandit on your laptop When you could use a flash drive and never bring home that germ. I have the need to carry a lot of information with me all the time and how great would it be to put it all on one flash drive and stick it in my pocket. Another reason: If you have ever been outside the U.S. you already know this. They have unbelievable power surges and I have on many occasions lost everything I am working on in an instant. The power may go off completely and stay off for days and when it comes back on… Look Out! Can you say “spike”?

  22. Eli Duran says:

    I wanna be the guy!
    I deserve the prize because I have been a long-time subscriber and I send subscribers your way and I can use the flash drive when I help others with their computer problems using the information and tips and techniques I learn from WorldStart.
