    I think the name that thing contest needs to be more challenging.

    I have been able to name it in the first 2 seconds for every contest. I am sure most other geeks like me can also. Try to make them a little harder 😉

    It is a *%*#$^%

  7. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hey Chad,

    The contest next week will be harder. 🙂

  8. Haseeb A Says:

    I havent been able to name ONE thing!!!

  9. JohnS Says:

    I agree with Chad, these have been REALLY easy. Maybe a two-tiered contest?

    By the way, why does it take until thursday to announce the winners? Just curious.

    Hang in there Haseeb, you will start to recognize these things in time…

  11. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi JohnS,

    That is a good idea, I want to make the contests fun and challenging. I try to announce the winners for the weekend contest on Monday or Tuesday but sometimes it gets delayed by a day or so…

    You have a great collection of clock on your site. 🙂
