I was telling the truth, Mark, when I stated in an earlier

post that I really have never before won anything in my

life (not even a 3 number lotto ticket).


What can I say. I'm speechless. But since actions are always louder than words my first response is to end the

classified forum offer to sell my DILA (I just did that). I now positively want to keep it and work your product's magic on it.


I repeat, I am speechless (maybe for the first time, haha).

But I can manage a big THANK YOU. And once more...

T H A N K S, M A R K.

You have made me as happy as if I had won the Powerball.


I know it was a very difficult position to be in to have to

end up selecting one winner from hundreds of entrants.

And I hope folks won't be mad at you or me. More

than anything I value the friendships I have developed with

so many of the people who participate on AVS forums. I say

friendships because even though I've actually met only a

very few I truly feel like I know a great many of you. And I surely don't want this to cause any harm to that.


I'll do my very best to make use of this prize in a way that

hopefully will be helpful to others.


Thanks again, Mark. Im still pinching myself.


Yours,


Bob

Love it Milori, great job on the splash screen & logo! Congrats to Bob Wood.


I also suggest planting an easter egg in the About... Colorfacts screen which will display the "Masterbrator" comic and play some 70s Funk music as a tip of the hat to Mr. Wigggles! Of course your screen will have to read 6500k across the greyscale first and then hit CTRL+MB...

Ricardo - Great idea about the Easter Egg! We always hide something somewhere (usually to never be found unless I tell someone about it), but that suggestion is classic!


Consider your idea implemented as well. Most excellent.

As the "First Almost Winner", does that mean if for some reason Bob can not perform his duties as winner, I get the free stuff?


Anyways, great job Bob.

I probably deserved that one, Ken. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


But I promise that it will never go on eBay

or anywhere else for sale. This one's a keeper.


Colorfacts (probably the shorthand name it will soon

get) is looking like something that will be so extremely valuable to me. Because it will work with all my projectors

(digital and CRT). My DILA will welcome it and some of my CRT projectors are really badly in need of color calibration. I can hardly wait to get my hands on it.

Hi Stampy,


By the way, thanks for naming "Inspector Gamutt"! The name fits him well.


I stopped updating the master list just before the weekend when the "Video Colorfacts" name started to gel. At that point there were over 1900 suggestions! If we toss in those long last minute entries from the weekend, there were well over 2000 total!


In all, it was quite a task to get through them all, and some people really put in a lot of creativity and thinking into their suggestions. I hope that the highly creative folks are not disappointed that the product will have such a "simple" name. I really appreciate the effort that everyone put in.


Thanks again!


Mark

If I may say three things here:


1) I never even noticed the name ColorFacts. It's amazing how you were able to spot it's potential in the nealy endless list of look-alike names.


2) I'm very impressed with how everyone reacted to the contest with such positive comfirmation of the winner. AVS is the best.


3) I'm also amazed with how smoothly this contest was done.


oh, and the logo is smashing, really really, nice.

Thanks, Stampy (and ArchTech). The ideas you both gave

Mark were very important to his choice of the name. For

that I am eternally grateful.


I honestly wish Mark had hundreds of Colorfacts to distribute and you and ArchTech and everyone else who entered the contest could receive one.


Bob
