    No idea… I like the prize tho 🙂

  3. spiorf Says:

    lol, part of the image has been painted black!!!

  4. Bill Says:

    I’ve fixed a few of ’em. Does that rule me out of the contest?

  5. Craig Says:

    Cool prize! Major time saver!

  6. Alan Parekh Says:

    Spiorf is right, there is a large part painted black, it that wasn’t done it would be a dead giveaway. 🙂

  7. Alan Parekh Says:

    LOL, ya Bill, you are out of the contest for knowing too much. 🙂 Just kidding, of course you can enter. I am curious about how long they ran before needing service?

  8. Myself Says:

    Ahh, the little bit of blur on the photo makes the text hard to read. Once I figured out the mechanism, some of the words became obvious. 😉

    I’m not entering, as I already have plenty of cable testers, but I wanted to say, this was a good one. The puzzles and the prizes are getting better, thanks Alan! I look forward to reading some of Bill’s stories after the contest ends…

  9. Matt Says:

    It’s almost like one of those super zoomed photos that makes it very difficult to identify it readily.

  10. Mike Says:

    Yep, the text does become obvious when you figure out what it is. Without the black paint, it would have been too easy.

  11. Alan Parekh Says:

    Winner announced.
