Well, the time has come again! Time for my wife and I to start training for the MS150 charity ride here in NE Florida. If you're not familiar with the event, you can get more details here. Its basically a charity fundraiser bike ride from St. Augustine, FL to Daytona Beach, FL covering 150 miles in 2 days.
This time its not me, but Ray Camden is giving away a copy of ColdFusion Builder if you donate to a charity of your choice. You can get the details on his blog here. If you aren't using ColdFusion Builder yet, you really should give it a try. Im finding more and more about it that Im liking every day!
With the ride coming up this weekend, Im having to adjust my schedule somewhat. I will not be around at all on Friday to do the drawing so Im going to move the deadline and drawing up to today. If you are interested in a chance to win a copy of ColdFusion Builder, you have until 2pm EST to enter. I will be doing the drawing shortly after 2pm EST and announcing the winner here and on Twitter.
Let me start by saying how thankful I am to be a part of this community. I want to thank everyone who sponsored my ride for the National MS Society as well as all of you who blogged about the contest and sent out re-tweets, etc. Thanks so much again to Adam Lehman and Adobe for donating the copy of ColdFusion Builder for me to give away to help in my fundraising efforts! I raised a total of $558 for the MS Society which for my first time riding in this event I think is awesome!
Yeah it sure created a stir alright, with Fanboys and haters alike! It seems the iPad is certainly dividing camps and Im not really sure why. Yeah I have to admit I was watching the live blogs during the event as I always do. Anticipating something that would be revolutionary. I have to admit though, my expectations were not super high. I have never been interested in a tablet PC. I owned a netbook for 2 months and hated the damn thing with a passion. So I was just watching hoping for something that would allow me to browse the internet while sitting on the couch without unhooking everything from my Macbook Pro in the office.
