Default So What's the Weather Like Where You Are Today? Win a Prize!

<p>That <em>lovely</em> video below is what I was seeing yesterday morning standing in my garage - as I write this it's gotten even worse. Winter has really arrived in full force where I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Blowing snow, roads being shut down, the whole deal. Since Windows Phone Thoughts and Digital Home Thoughts have a world-wide audience, I'm always interested in knowing what it's like where you live. And since I happen to have some <a href="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1259962362.usr1.jpg" target="_blank">now-legacy micro-lights</a> branded with site names that no longer exist (Pocket PC Thoughts, Smartphone Thoughts, and Digital Media Thoughts) I thought there was a way I could clear up some inventory and have some fun at the same time...because who doesn't like cool little flashlights for free?</p><p><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="600" height="360" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/RUetddSRO1g&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/RUetddSRO1g&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18"></embed></object></p><p>So here's the deal: I want you to post a picture of what the weather is like where you are right now. Bright sunny day? Cold and wet? Night time? It doesn't matter what it is, I want you to share your environment with the rest of the community - it's always fascinating to me to see the different sorts of things we experience. I have <strong>25 Pocket PC Thoughts</strong> micro lights to give away, <strong>15 Smartphone Thoughts</strong> micro lights, and <strong>10 Digital Media Thoughts</strong> micro lights. <strong>That's 50 total prizes</strong>, and they'll be given to the <strong>first 50 people</strong> who post an image of the weather or environment they're in right now. <strong>BONUS:</strong> If someone posts a video, I'll also include a spare battery for the micro light (while supplies last - I have five extra batteries, so first come first serve). <MORE /></p><p>So here's what you'll need to do: being among the first 50 people to post a message in our forums as a response to this post, sharing a picture or video. I might just check the EXIF data on the image, so make it legitimate. ;-) If you don't have a Web hosting account or a place to host the image, use a service such as <a href="http://tinypic.com/" target="_blank">TinyPic</a> or <a href="http://imageshack.us/" target="_blank">ImageShack</a> (and YouTube for videos). Try to keep the images 800 x 600 or smaller so it doesn't completely break our template. If it's a video, you can post a link to the video if the embedding code won't work (not all embedding code will work in our forums). If you don't know how to embed a photo or video, just post a link to it.</p><p>After you've posted your picture or video, <a href="http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/private.php?do=newpm&amp;u=1" target="_blank">send me a private forum message</a> giving me your mailing address and <a href="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1259962362.usr1.jpg" target="_blank">which one of the three micro lights you'd prefer</a>. I can't guarantee you'll get the one you requested, so give me a second and third choice.</p><p>Let's see those pictures and videos!</p><p><strong>UPDATE:</strong> You can't upload pictures directly into our forum, which is why I gave the links to TinyPic and ImageShack. Also, if it's your first post, it will take 24-48 hours for it to appear.</p>
