Dreamhost Apple Promotion

Dreamhost is giving you a chance to win one of the new Apple tablets that everyone has been talking about recently.

1. The contest is open to US residents only anybody in the world (where not prohibited by law) who are not employees nor related to employees of DreamHost. No purchase necessary, you do not have to be a DreamHost customer to win.
2. You may enter the contest only once per day, starting today, January 27th, 2010…. days are counted based on the U.S. Pacific Time Zone.
3. To enter, simply post a “tweet” via twitter that includes the word DreamHost in it (upper case and content of tweet do not matter… but spelling does!).
4. The contest ends on the day we get 20 16GB Wifi iPads $10,000 worth of Apple Tablets physically in our possession. If by some miracle there ends up being no such thing as an Apple Tablet, the prize becomes $10,000 worth of whatever the hell Apple announces today instead.
5. At that time, we will randomly pick floor($10,000/$price_of_tablet)20 winners from the valid entries (we will be logging all tweets with “dreamhost” in them in the meantime) and contact them via twitter (from our @dreamhost account) to verify their eligibility.
6. And now, the final twist… a winner will be determined ineligible (and a replacement picked) if at ANY time between now and the end of the contest they have posted ANY tweet(s) with the term “fail” in it/them (or any clever alternative spelling)! “Failure” is fine. “Sucks” is fine. “Crappy” is fine. “Nightmare” is fine. Just not “fail”. Nor “#fail”. Nor even “@fail” (poor guy).

Read the full details here at Dreamhost’s official blog site and learn about how not failing can help turn hosting into a free computer for you.  Actually, you don’t even have to get the hosting!  But, if you are thinking about signing up for shared hosting or VPS services with Dreamhost, make sure you do so with a coupon so as to get the best price available.  No one likes paying full price, right?  So what’s better than a chance at a free computer and some incredibly cheap hosting services to get your sites online?

Someone will be winning a free computer, and it might just be you.  In the meantime, I’ll see ya on Twitter – and remember not to fail!
