    I'll put you out of your misery now. WRONG! but you do get a bonus entry for guessing, and you are now maxed out!

    (see the post above that I was typing when you posted this)

It's that simple - no prize for correct answer (other than pride and smugosity), but a single bonus entry for each person who has one or more guesses. Remember that no-one get's more than 3 total entries including their original entry (currently just @sparkeh and @HaleStorm are maxed out). CLUE: there is a tiny big clue somewhere in this paragraph.

    Is it a very BIG VeryPC mug, as in the clue was sMUGosity?

    Nope - nice logic though.

    Bonus earned, you are maxed sir!

    EDIT - I will reveal the prize later today. I'll take guesses until 3pm then tell you all what it is, so make your guesses...
    Bonus just for a guess whether its correct or not?

    My guess is a supermarket sweep style trip around the VeryPC production line. Whatever you can carry or fit in your pockets you get to keep, including Al.

    Am I right?

    Is it a greengrocer's apostrophe?

    (Also, I fear the subtle clue is not to subtle when quoting and seeing the link to the Nano PC. Alas! Unless that itself is just a clue, and the real prize is a fleet of nanobots psychically melded to the brain stem and able to respond instantly to mental commands, thus allowing the winner to establish themselves as The Dominator, overthrowing the British government and ruling over a new cyberpunk dystopia called Verypcia. But it's probably the first thing.)

    I've got it! It's that simple because the star prize is actually a star. You get your very own star as the star prize.
