    Love this idea and hope I win. Bought a mintduino kit at Maker Faire NYC and have enjoyed reading the manual. Kits are the best and easiest way to learn something new “by a book.” A lot of us don’t have access to classes, so kits are the answer for new skills. Thanks for caring.

    Not to sound too much like an idiot, but I can’t seem to find the current contest page.  I click on the link above that says “current giveaway” and it takes me to a page where the newest posted item is from the day before.  So, today I was excited to try to enter the contest for the 3-D printer, but when I scrolled down I saw that it was yesterday’s post and the comment section was closed. 
    Can anyone help steer me in the right direction?  I checked the Blog, too, but can’t find anything recent.

    1. Gareth Branwyn says:

      Emily, if you check that link now ( today’s giveaway will be there. Each day’s giveaway ends at midnight (PST) and the new day’s giveaway is posted at 9am, so there’s a period where there’s no giveaway. 

      I’ll add something to the post above to clarify this.

      Thanks (and sorry for the confusion)

      1. Emily Pike says:

        Thanks for your help.  It might just be something wrong with my computer.  I clicked on the link you provided above and even though it is 10 a.m., the latest kit is from yesterday that was posted at 9 a.m.

        I’ll keep checking.

    Today, I did a lot of hand forming of wet leather, some digital painting, and some rock polishing.  This doesn’t count the finishing of some Lichtenberg figures I made in November.  I would love to win a Makerbot since there are so many things I’d do with it….

  296. Randy Crowell says:

    I love MAKE but this contest is BS. Something is wrong when only 6 of 14 winners are able to claim their prize within the allowed time. Somebody is not getting the message and nobody is going to convince me that the people that entered never read their email to get the notification. Make could and should do a better job of letting the winners know they won. I think the whole thing is a cluster f^@&

    I could make so many things with a Makerbot that my wife would lose me to my shop.  I am in my shop all day and a Makebot would mean i would be in there all night to. But I’m still willing to shoe horn it in.
