    OK here is the scoop. My local news station has this thing called I-Warn which shows a map of the area with weather and shows you school closings and stupid crap like that. I never downloaded it because it was stupid and plus they didnt have a mac os x version. well since not many people have messed with it they made a contest. Whoever refers the most people to I-Warn they will give 500 dollars. I know not many people are gonna do this stupid thing, and I figured with the power of this site and I can get a crap load of emails. Now this is what I will do, if I win I will give half of the money to Arn to contribute to making this site better because this is my favorite site and I am not going to win without help. So i guess all there really is to do is give me your email address or any email address (as many as you can give me) and I will use the Iwarn program on my windows machine and enter them.

    And the contributors will be spammed then forever by iWarm... ah, Warn??

    Sounds like a good thing for Arn, though ;)

    I think you should have titled it, help "Arn win $250 for MacRumors". Maybe a mod will change it...

    I don't care about your $250 finder's fee. ;)

    personally im still trying to figure out why they are doing this competition. i think maybe its because in the little windows programs, they have ads of local businesses and i guess they can raise the prices with more people using it. but all i know is they are giving out some cash from spreading the word, so im all for it.

    This kind of reminds me of those old fast food sweepstakes in the 1970s and 1980s that didn't limit the number of entries. One could have some fun with these folks.
