Try Your Hand At A Home Server Haiku (ie. A contest ;-)

Quote:
Feeling literary? Creative? Or maybe just passionate for the latest generation of Windows Home Server devices hitting the market? Either way, here’s your chance to win a Home Server and host of other great prizes including Zune HD players and 1 TB hard drives to help expand your storage.

Through December 11th, Intel and Microsoft are co-sponsoring A Home Server Haiku contest. To enter, simply write a haiku about how a home server would help bring peace of mind to your life—or simply why you really want one. Your name will be entered in a contest to win one of three new home servers, one of ten Zune digital audio players, or one of ten 1TB hard drives.

If you’re like me, a handy English class refresher on Haikus can be found here, courtesy of Wikipedia (simply put, it’s a poem made up of three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, with thankfully no rhyming needed).  :-)

More details – and the entry form - are up on the website www.winahomeserver.com.

So here’s my attempt:
Each day it helps me

From its perch in my basement

My little server

I’m sure you can do better…Give it a try, and spread the word!

- Mark
