We believe that contests and giveaways should be fun. You shouldn't have to jump through a bunch of hoops to have the chance to win something. We don't believe you should have to "Like, Subscribe and Share" anything to be eligible to win something. You shouldn't have to follow us on "Twitter or Facebook" or like a sponsors page. Contests and giveaways are simple, use the email with the name of the prize in the subject line and that's it. Your email address will never be stored, sold, traded or shared with anyone...ever. You can enter once a day for as long as the giveaway runs, multiple entries will be deleted. Patreon backers get an automatic extra entry each day. We use a random number generator to pick the winners. It really is that easy.

Also, for those of you not up to speed on our annual Computers For Charity Project, here's the quick and dirty explanation:

Every year we collect used / older computer parts from our readers in an attempt to build as many computers as we possibly can to be donated to those in need. We've done this for more than 20 years. In the past 7 years alone, we've built and donated over 200 computers for families in need.

2013 I built twenty six systems
2014 I built twenty two systems
2015 I built sixteen systems
2016 I built twenty systems
2017 I built twenty four computers / laptops
2018 I built twenty nine systems
2019 I built thirty one systems
2020 I built thirty six systems / laptops
2021 I built twenty two systems
2022 I built twelve systems / SFF machines

These computers will be used for every day tasks, such as homework for kids, employment searches for adults, filling out online forms and applications, watching instructional videos, job training and, with any luck, a little entertainment as well.

When I reopened Hypothermia earlier this year, I told you we would have frequent giveaways as a way of giving back to our readers while promoting the site at the same time, so I wanted to give you guys a peek at some really cool prize packages that I have put together that think you will really like.
