Re: Just Write about TXP: win an iPod Touch

Ah, the Irony.

Competition aims to increase visibility/popularity of TXP and prompts a very good (persuasive) opinion piece expressing a preference for TXP based partly on it’s relative obscurity.

I say If Bert wins i say he has to move txptag.com to wordpress. ;)

I have WordPress running safely in a virtual machine, needed to install it just to figure out the Twenty Ten template. It does have a purty admin side, I’ll give it that, but I won’t give it access to the Net ;)

Re: Just Write about TXP: win an iPod Touch

The votes of the jury are in, and we have a winner!

Congrats to mrdale, who hit the sweet spot with his entry TXP is my Gibson SG.

We were particularly impressed by Dale’s ability to write up a piece about Textpattern while neither linking to the Textpattern site nor mentioning Textpattern in the post’s title but adding a plug for some brand of noisy axes. The iPod is already in a USPS courier’s messenger bag:

iPod Touch 8 GB 4G

If we had a second prize at our disposal, we would have awarded it to Stuart. His entry titled Why I Still Use Textpattern? is a true piece of romance and love.

Thanks to all who contributed!

Congratulations to the winner! I liked the post as well and it even inspired me to jot down some of my reasons to call Textpattern my favourite CMS. My post you can read here

lol… Updated sorry about that… Hey at least I didn’t refer to textpattern exclusively as “turdflower” and shoot it in the face.

seriously though… Thanks to everyone else for participating and to the devs for the Pod.

Re: Just Write about TXP: win an iPod Touch

Well done Dale, and whilst Hendrix is God, at least in my head, can I suggest a smattering of Porcupine Tree?
