    Technically that puts me in 2nd place. I'll take that.

    The better man won though. Kudos @nephilim!

    oops sorry @Rawns and @CamelMan

    I thought I'd trawled every vote on the thread as I was adding them up. You guys are keeping it so busy it's easy to miss the odd post. I need a Stocktober minion for thread admin!

    Luckily, it was not a close vote, so I don't think any insinuations of foul play will stand up. Damn the democratic process, corruption always creeps in.

    Hahaha! Not to worry Al, no doubt we're all itching to get out of the office and get the first beer of the weekend down!

    Wahey, a VeryPC T-shirt! And I wonder if I can build a table-snooker-playing Raspberry Pi bot...? Well, guess now I can find out! :P

    Le EDIT: the octo also sounds like Sean Connery.

    Al, will we be able to get a VeryPC t-shirt if we DON'T win a stock2ber prize? [Or if we do win and want to keep it.]

    Looking at the tentacle positioning, Octo is riding side saddle. How cute.

    Trying to work out the bear's name. Think it might be Mr. Bearsworthy. Discuss.

    For the time being T-shirts will be only for booby prize winners and as swapsies for non-booby prize winners.

    There may be as yet undecided post competition opportunities to acquire these items, but I can't speculate yet. Gotta keep them rare so when they show up on Antiques Roadshow 2063 the robot version of Fiona Bruce (just taking a moment...) can announce a value of like, a squillion Mars-bucks.

    That's going on the wall! Need to check my file back at work on Monday to see if I've already awarded you a bonus entry for wall-pic before I declare this a bonus.

    ALSO - it kinda looks like the hunt is over judging by those crosshairs - barring any last second interventions by Jack Ryan et al.
