jkOnTheRun HP HDX Dragon contest- we have a winner!

Hp_hdxWow, time flies when you’re having fun and we certainly have had our fill of fun running the 31 Days of the Dragon contest here on jkOnTheRun.  Entries shut down last night at midnight and we have scoured through all of them and can now announce the big winner!  Kevin and I knew that with the 11 questions we required to be correctly answered that the ultimate winner would end up being the one who was closest to the official number of comments and posts that had been logged as of the contest kickoff time and we sure got that right.  We are happy to announce that Stefano Arduino is the big winner of the HP and BuzzCorps supplied HP HDX Dragon prize bundle for answering the 9 questions correctly and then coming amazingly close to the correct number of posts and comments.  It is obvious that Stefano spent quite some time counting posts and comments for his entry.  We are waiting for Stefano to get back to us with confirmation but we believe from his email address that he is in France.
