Try emailing Stan. There should be a contact link around here someplace.<br><br>

I am in a similar situation. I received email from Stan in June indicating I had won a copy of BBEdit, and I replied with my email address. I have not received the software, and I have sent 2 additional replies to Stan with no response.<br><br>

Hi Guys,<br><br>All of those should have gone out ages ago. I will check on yours today and see what happened. Please email me your contact details to sflack@macminute.com so I have a cross-reference.<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan

Same situation here. I have sent two emails to Stan with my contact info, the last requesting a brief reply just to indicate the message was received. All I have received is silence. Rather disappointing.<br><br>

Perhaps he is busy trying to contact the companies and finding out what's going on? Give him some time...<br><br>

being a guy that's run a few promotions and has had to keep all of the stuff that goes with one straight, I would like to say "bravo" to macminute for giving away however many (was it like 1000+) prizes it was, and only screwing up like two of them.... <br><br>if you've never run a promotion/give away, you have no idea how hard it is to keep it all straight, and how easy it can be to screw it up.<br><br>good job guys.<br><br>"In the old days, you'd finish a day's work and announce, 'I'm done.'
