Birthday Time
« on: January 15, 2007, 05:55:08 PM »

It's almost 1 year since I started GPWizard (Feb 9th) and I feel its only appropriate to reward the people that have helped make the site what it is today.

This is a competition with a difference:

It is based on member activity and the top 3 members will each win a prize.This may seem unfair at first but my (secret) calculations will be based on 'your activity' since you have been a member.

I am telling you this now because your activity over the next month could make all the difference!

The Prize for each member with the highest activity is a genuine F1 Carbon Fibre Pen, these pens are fabulous and well worth having. Are there no boundaries to my generosity?  ::)

Get posting men (and women) and we will see who stands on the podium at the end of the race!

Good Luck.  :good:

Which team do i support?
I have a nice Biro Pen for the first member who is correct.
This is not as posh as the Wizards but has History.

A Hungarian journalist named Laszlo Biro invented the first ballpoint pen in 1938. Biro had noticed that the type of ink used in newspaper printing dried quickly, leaving the paper dry and smudge-free. He decided to create a pen using the same type of ink. The thicker ink would not flow from a regular pen nib and Biro had to devise a new type of point. He did so by fitting his pen with a tiny ball bearing in its tip. As the pen moved along the paper, the ball rotated picking up ink from the ink cartridge and leaving it on the paper. This principle of the ballpoint pen actually dates back to an 1888 patent owned by John J. Loud for a product to mark leather. However, this patent was commercially unexploited. Laszlo Biro first patented his pen in 1938, and applied for a fresh patent in Argentina on June 10, 1943. (Laszlo Biro and his brother Georg Biro emigrated to Argentina in 1940.) The British Government bought the licensing rights to this patent for the war effort. The British Royal Air Force needed a new type of pen, one that would not leak at higher altitudes in fighter planes as the fountain pen did. Their successful performance for the Air Force brought the Biro pens into the limelight. Laszlo Biro had neglected to get a U.S. patent for his pen and so even with the ending of World War II, another battle was just beginning..

If you know?Or have a clue one of these historical pens could be on its way...

No:Wizard i meant an F1 Team.
And if you have all been reading my reports it should be very easy.
Who knows the Wizard might just put in a really posh pen.
But then again,he might become the Scrooge of F1

Which members will it be?

Oh the suspense is killing me!

Things are hotting up with only 9 days to go! Below are the positions and scores so you can see how close it is.  :good:


1st Member = *****  Score = 3.722
2nd Member = ***** Score = 3.297
3rd Member = *****  Score = 2.904
4th Member = *****  Score = 2.823

Remember any activity will help your score in my calculations, so come on it's almost the final lap.

And it's started to rain on the track, the members have come in and gone back out on wets, will we see a button style win?  Who knows, one thing we do know these members have been driving hard, this could be closest finish of the season so far......


Can you all tell it's early in the morning here?
