    Here's your "link":

    It's a real wall, not a profile wall. There's your submission on the bottom right.

    You already have the max 3 entries btw, so you can relax in the calming knowledge that you have as good a chance of winning the PS4 as anyone in the competition can have.

    Woaaaaaaaaahhh there Al....
    I can spot 2! Yes 2! of my pictures on the wall there. There's 'Al Hoskins' but also 'Dr Al Burner PhD' at the top there. I think, according to the 'the rules' that means another entry?

    Uhuh - be you usual creative self and I'm sure you'll earn the bonuses you deserve.

    Plus, don't rule yourself out of the Morgan Freeman competition - there are options for the impersonation that take your own voice out of the equation completely. Exhibit A: @hallb15's speak and spell style - STOCKTOBER2! A month of prizes and sweeties from VeryPC

    There's be other chances for bonuses coming up later too, so if you hang around the thread long enough you'll be able to max out your total entries at the limit of 3 per entrant.

    I have 2 on there as well. Bearshark and "WHAT"

    It's so beautiful... And it's the only computer that'll be outputting to HDMI. Not even MINE does that.

    Despite the disappointment over the prize I shall at least bask in the glory of winning for once...

    Thanks Al and all at VeryPC
    Don't plan that mobile just yet @CESIL - There's an announcement coming up in the next vid about options for unwanted prizes. Be sure to tune in later. We've not sent the first batch of prizes out yet, so everyone who wants to choose "option B" will be given the chance.

    @X-13 is correct @sparkeh bonuses are based on number of categories participated in rather than submissions per category (don't want to make it toooo easy to max out), so your 2 pics only earn you 1 bonus I'm afraid. However, stick around and you'll soon get another chance to bag that final extra entry with another bonus entry category (that's if you don't submit a Morgan Freeman impersonation, in which case you can get your 3rd entry pronto).

    Al

    P.S. your multiple contributions are very appreciated though, so feel free to keep 'em coming!

    Glad to hear it. See below for phrase:

    Quote Originally Posted by VeryPC View Post

    "Now the only thing you can think of, is the sound of my voice, man it sounds good. You know what else is good? Stocktober. Now I'm not talking about regular prizes being given out, why, they're giving out a PS4. And if you mess with Al or his crew, they'll send Emma around, and nobody wants that! I am the Morgan Freeman." Then say your EduGeek username so we can keep track.

    Best impression decided by votes in the thread (you can't vote for yourself though) wins a big bag of Sweeties from the South Yorkshire branch of Wonka Enterprises (sweet warehouse near our factory). Anyone hanging out on the thread can cast 1 vote.
    Entries close at midnight tomorrow night, so don't dally. We'll run the vote throughout Thursday and Friday this week with Winner announced on Friday afternoon.

    Surely that is worthy of losing an entry
