    Well don't shy away from asking any questions that are not related to sticking cables in places they might not belong!

Congrats to the winners :D



I thought this was too funny to not share with everyone...

My t-shirt and stickers have arrived (thanks btw!). Along with an interesting post-it note:
Stack Exchange stickers  with interesting post-it note

And here's a close-up:
Interesting post-it note close up

It's a proper post-it type note as well, with a little sticky across the top of the back. The ink has seeped through it a little. Nothing else in here to explain why it's there, just shows the humour of the SE team, I guess, which is great.

I think I shall make it my gravatar, at least for a while. :)
