    Giving away some free goodies!

    Hi,

    My name is Kent Nolan and I work in Tech Support for PaperCut. A while back I had the idea of running a competition that involved people coming up with the most creative/fun script they can make. We've seen some funny scripts in the past that have come through support, mainly the one about the IT guy who forwarded every fifth print job through to the principal's office, resulting in concert tickets being snapped up by a lucky assistant.

    It is scripts like that one that lead me to this idea; how geeky can you make these scripts? There are plenty of people who are better at JavaScript than I am - in fact my example script is pretty lazy, have a look at the code. Chris Dance (one of the PaperCut founders) has written a script too and that one is pretty impressive.

    And if you win, first place is a Raspberry Pi with all the trimmings, second and third place get a Raspberry Pi unit too. If your script doesn't win a Raspberry Pi but itís really geeky, we have some ThinkGeek vouchers to give away.

    If you want to play, check out our competition page and when youíre ready, you can enter by either:

    • Posting your script as an attachment below.
    • Linking us to your blog.
    • Creating a GitHub branch for it (also post a link below).
    • Or by emailing it to the following address: edugeekcomp@papercut.com



    If you have any questions, let me know, Iíll be lurking around.

    Good luck, have fun.

    Good catch lstevens; unfortunately, I've been super busy getting the latest release out the door. Realistically, I am not going to have time to review the submissions and send out prizes for another few weeks. I thought it made sense to extend the competition deadline too

    The date on the webpage has been updated to the 15th of Feb. Good luck
