Contest ends at the end of the month.   Enter and send in a photo of anything workbench, test equipment, or soldering related you have.  Even if it's just a radio shack soldering iron or a $5 Harbor Freight meter.

Grand prize drawing is random from all entries so you have just as much chance as anyone.

This is such a shameless, obvious blogspam.

I wonder several things.
Did your reference to "blogspam" intentionally refer to the sig in your inane post or was it just a happy coincidence?
What font are you talking about? Arial? or some other one?
Did you make the font?
How do you know it isnt free/he hasnt paid?

@OP
Thanks for the contest!

Actually many fonts are free.
The "Arial" font used in the body of the pages is only specified by the code.  The font actually loads from the visitors computer and no paid royalties are required.  The font in the title is a royalty free font available for commercial use.

Please don't play dumb, I know how fonts in the HTML body work. I was referring to the graphics font. Please provide a link to where it says this font is royalty-free.

I was referring to the fact that sole existence of this site is to promote his TheSchematicMan.com site which sells copyrighted schematics. This dude thrives on theft. My blog sells nothing, and I don't plaster it in large fonts or create fake contests.

I don't know what your problem is and you certainly don't know copyright laws.  Nothing sold there is still under copyright.

As far as fonts Just google the good times RG font.  It's royalty free.  I'm sorry but you really have no idea what your talking about.  If it bothers you just don't click on the links to the contest.  Dave knows about the contest posts and it's his forum anyway.   I'm not quite sure why you care if someone's having a contest and giving anything away anyway and why you would go around saying it's a fake contest and someone is a thief but it's really none of your business.
