    Yeah, video withdrawal.

    I wonder if @sparkeh still has future or past Al that he can force to make videos giving away little things like paper clips and staples, just to keep us going until present Al and @VeryPC do their next big comp.

    Yay! Who won it? I hope it's me. If I save up enough I can make a pencil.

    Maybe they're being divvied up amongst all of us who got the "You owe us £1.41 before you can have your VeryPC package" cards from Royal Mail... I still haven't got a replacement package

    That's not as bad as some of us who stumped up the £1.41 to get the package thinking it was something we had ordered...

    I heard rumour of recompense for those of us affected, but haven't heard any more about that in a while...

    Surely £1.41 was worth it for the schadenfreudian laugh it gave the rest of us.

    Madvent 2013? Pfft! Not-Al who isn't not locked up in my non time travelling basement isn't currently performing draws for Madvent 2042.
    Top prize? Well it certainly isn't a hover board off of Back to the Future II.

    Weeeeeeeee *smack* *ooof* stupid hover board.

    This rumour of recompense is true (I say "rumour", actually, it's a promise we made to compensate you for my mistake).

    We wanted to make sure your compensation was decent, so it took a little preparation, but your new items are in the oven now (literally as it happens - well, not "oven", kiln actually).

    Should take another week or two, but goodies will be coming the way of all 2013 Stocktobians soon.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Al

    So: guesses for what it is, then?

    I reckon you've made little clay models of Al-ly McBeal. Or maybe it's a beautiful little model of Al & @VeryPC_Colin_M re-enacting the famous clay scene from Ghost?

    I just got a package from @VeryPC... I thought it was this mysterious thing.

    It was actually the Ferrero Rocher that I totally didn't forget about.

    Opened in front of the staff?!

    Mine required the use of a bladed instrument to open... the entire thing was coated in a think layer of tape.
