Between the vicious migraine I picked up in Los Angeles and my hot date with TurboTax, I didn’t have time to write my review of Buffalo’s CloudStor for this week. (Though I did use it while I was out of town, and my tax return is getting backed up onto it right now.) I did, however, manage to come up with some rules for the Rebit 5 CD giveaway so that my extra copies of the Rebit software don’t go to waste. (Okay, I am copying said rules from other contests I have seen. I have not had enough brain cells for much original thought lately.)
Here’s how it works. Post a link to last week’s Rebit 5 review to Twitter, Facebook, your blog, a Yahoo! group, a forum, etc. and then put a link to your link in the comments here. (Another WordPress blog should leave an automatic pingback, but come by to check anyway—I’ll need your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.) You can also e-mail me a screenshot of your posting if it’s in a place non-members can’t link to: the e-mail address is sallie [at] fileslinger [dot] com.
As an example, here’s the link to my review on the official Rebit site:
Your link doesn’t have to be nearly as fancy, but that’s the general idea. You can (possibly you should—I’m not sure what the FTC thinks about this) say that the purpose of your post is to win a free copy of the software.
On April 22nd, I’ll draw 2 names at random from the entrants. Once I notify the winners and get their addresses so I can send them the CDs, I’ll post the names here on the blog.
I also have two copies, still in unopened boxes, of the Rebit SaveMe software from last year, reviewed in January 2010. I’m not sure why I didn’t give these away then—probably because I was planning to install one of them on my original Rebit drive, but never got my Round Tuit out. Anyway, even though it’s not the latest version, it was perfectly functional software, and I’ll be happy to award it to the runners-up if they are interested.
