Hey,

You never now their may be a raffle between all the names, and that one lucky person may be going to SPACE, unless its unmanned and i look like a dork for not reading the PDF.

But just assume that you gave all them Certs, away, and one of them got picked GUTTED

Is your mother violently opposed to lamination? ;)

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member



presonally, yes - i would have thought the experiance of being laminated, was a little too much.

my fault, Na - i mean passing a certificate laminated or not as a Christams present, it ain't happening - fatal with no reservations.

I got a rather poor reaction from one of my stepsisters one Xmas, when I bought presents for a children's charity in my relative's names... I made the relatives certificates telling them what the child's name was, how old they were, and what present they got, along with a card explaining the program, and stuck them all in Xmas cards.

The stepsister in question got me a basket of artificially scented soap and bath gel though, so I didn't feel too bad. ;)

You, Can't please everybody.

Most of my family except mother will be happy with it because of the techno-phob that rules the family or just the uniqueness of the idea. But not mother. Don't worry, she's got a habbit of trying to dress me each christmas in tie's and socks, i would not give to a living sole, even as a sick joke.

24 names and counting.

that server is under load, i would guess at a rate of 75-80 registrations per minute, looking at the registration numbers that i was seeing.

WebmasterWorld Senior Member mivox is a WebmasterWorld Top Contributor of All Time 10+ Year Member



Yup, even entering them as fast as I could, I never got two certificates closer than 20 numbers apart.

Now I'm trying to think if I missed anyone... only about 8 hours before they shut down registrations. hehe.

Register everyone you can think of... then, if you change your mind about wanting to give them a certificate, just don't print one out for them. :)

Well, I guess I will make peace with my fate now... I'm bringing doom upon most of my family and friends also, so at least I'll have people to hang out with in the afterlife. ;)

I was able to get 2 certificates in numerical order by using 2 separate windows......
