Here are the rules.

  1. Send an email to hunter at hunterdavis.com with the subject line “Hackaway 2010”
  2. Include in the message the numbers of the hackaway items you would be interested in receiving
  3. That’s it. I will randomly select the winners after 7 days or 5,000 entries, whichever is sooner. There are no restrictions on who may enter. Any person from any country could win. Just like last time.
  4. If you like, let me know what country and state you are from. Last time we had entries from dozens of countries, and it’s always fun to see where they come in from.
  5. After the winners are selected, I email them for their addresses, and send out their prizes. There are no fees or restrictions to entry, and I pay all duties, customs, and shipping

And here are the prizes

  1. Didj Hacking Bundle – Didj+Claude’s custom board with SD adapter, custom loader, source code, etc. Everything you need to start porting software.
