UPDATE - winner announcement!
UPDATE - entries are now closed!
Our "Win a trip to Computex Taipei 2012" contest is off to a good start, but what we forgot to do when first announcing the contest was to confirm an end date.
We will stop accepting entries for the contest on May 15th. A winner will be decided and announced on May 21st. At that point we will begin the process of booking flights, etc.
Good luck! And in case you missed it the first time, the full original post is below.
