    Hey I do actually need a new home PC, a nano would be awesome.

    It would really make my Christmas. Just saying.

    LOL.

    You cheeky bar-steward. I just spotted it. [I use the editor in WYSIWYG mode, so it isn't as obvious.]

    I know. It's not a VeryPC it's a Tiny PC! @VeryPC Al managed to pick one up on his time-travels.

    Thanks for the guess @Seb1780, but I cannot award you a bonus entry until you enter the competition in the first place (apologies if your original entry somehow got lost in an EduGeek PM vortex).

    If you are an IT tech/manager/support type character, just PM me your professional contact details and I'll add you to the competition AND add your bonus entry for this guess.

    Be quick if you qualify, entries close at midnight tonight.

    Al

    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?
    That would be so awesome, and incredibly expensive for us! No - it is not that.

    I really wanna say yes, but you are like soooooooooooooooooooooooo wrong *smug*

    Yeah - what a brutal tease I've been - no prize! Nope, you're wrong, there is a prize.

    (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.)
    No is not gramaticalistic errors. End of statement. Also not nano-bots, but that scenario will be played out in 2014.

    Should be, looks like we need it. Nope

    Would be cool, if it were true! No.

    Actually the local star - you will own the sun itself! No you won't. Wrong.

    No, this is COMPLETELY wrong and nothing like the real answer.

    Some great guesses here. I knew if I said no prize for correct but bonus entries for guesses we'd get more interesting suggestions!

    Bonuses for you all except @sparkeh and @HaleStorm who are already maxed, but I didn't want to leave them out of my reply.

    Thanks folks,

    Al
