Zipper Manga Contest Winners!

Yes folks, that title does say winners, as in multiple persons. I had a really tough time deciding which was the best name. There were far too many.

So I have decided to go with a three winners, and a fourth "winner" of a Christmas winner! All four will get free copies of the Zipper manga upon its debut!

The Winners:
  • ZephyrWest for the name: "Zephyr"
  • PodThulhu for the A.I. robot type: "ARC MkII, (Autonomous Remote Consciousness, Mark II)" in reference to the Harvard computer which caught the first "bug".
  • haibl as a runner-up for the name: "Gromozeka"
  • elijah as the Christmas present winner!

Congratulations to you all!!!

Contest Outcome?

I'm sure that many of you are eager to find out who won the contest. To be honest, I am having a hard time choosing. There are a lot of great entries, and I am pouring over a "final" list. While this means that it is taking slightly longer to make a final decision, I know that there will be some very happy people out there in the end, because I have decided to go with MULTIPLE winners. How? Well, I leave that until announcement day, which I promise, is just around the corner. Another week at the most.

So if everyone will be just a little more indulgant, I'd greatly appreciate it. f(^^;

Manga Contest Final

Well, I must say, I am extremely pleased with the sheer number of participants and names that were sent in. Now comes the really hard part... picking the winner. There are definitely a few I am extremely partial to, and honestly, I'm not sure I can pick just one.

As my wife and I have plans this weekend, I won't be announcing the winner until Monday the 5th. And since I am an open-minded kinda guy, I'm going to allow anyone who wants to, to submit names during that time. Even those who have already submitted once, may submit again. Once I have chosen though, I won't change or extend. I'm open-minded, but not a fool. The last thing I want to do is to tick someone off. ;) I'm a man of my word.

That said, I wish you all a great weekend, and the best of luck on the contest!

All my best,
Made in DNA

Zipper Contest: A Word

I just thought I would let everyone know... as pleased with the entries I have received, the name you offer up does not have to be an acronym. Frankly, I was expecting more names like "Bob" or "Frank". (Thank Buddha you all have more imagination than that!) =) But there's no need to "force" a set of letters to work for the little "guy". =) Just go with what you enjoy the most (as some of you have). Though, admittedly, names with meanings (foreign words, dead/living language names, etc) are very cool. Though, I will play no favorites until it's time to make the final decision!
