Pens Are In The Mail


I finally shipped off the John Chow dot Com and pens to our February Top Commentators. Keep an eye for them because it should be at your doorsteps by next week. The Abit watch was also shipped as well. is making me a new batch of John Chow dot Com promotional pens to do with as I please. Now I need to come up with more contest ideas. Speaking of contest, check back in a few hours. There’s going to be a good one. Wait until you see what I’m giving away. 😈

  1. Contest Ideas: The funniest comment, the most esoteric comment, …

    How’s that? 👿

    1. That would take forever to sift through all of the comments on this site!

      1. Leftblank says:

        Sure thing, perhaps he could use some ‘nominate’ plugin for it to let us do the work though 😉

        1. He had the Digg style voting plugin for a while, but I don’t think it supplied any data…

  2. Jon says:

    Nice pens, I always run out of the damn things! Its like people keep stealing them. 🙄 😆

  3. That’s really some packaging involved in shipping these pens away, aren’t they? Such big envelopes!

    1. Those types of envelopes have a lot of bubbles inside to keep things from breaking… you really can’t fit THAT much inside of them. 😛

      1. Jane May says:

        Yeah, I’ve used them for work and you’re right, the bubbles take up a lot of room…I love popping them while I’m waiting in line, so I’m not sure how useful they are by the time I pay for them.

    2. Jez says:

      I was thinking that, I wonder how far and wide he is having to ship them??

      1. Zach says:

        yeah now that i think of it, it’s probably more of a hassle then it’s worth, even though it’s bringing a lot of comments

  4. Does your next contest have anything to do with an iPod device? :mrgreen:

    1. Andrew Kuo says:

      O, O, I know! It’s going to be an iPod device!

      1. Aris says:

        Did you mean the vibrating one? 😆

  5. derrich says:

    Cool. I hope it’s as cool as my Bloggers Bracket. Hmm…it IS on the evil one’s blog. Probably an evil plan. Hmmm…bring it on!

    1. We all know the evil one will win … he’s just too evil not to find out a way to get people to vote for him ❗ 😆

      1. In fact, he has already won you over, hasn’t he? 😛

        1. No, the contest is on his site!

  6. kwandom says:

    Nice carpet. Is that berber with a half inch padding?

    1. John Chow says:

      I have no idea.

      1. David says:

        something tells me he doesn’t really care either!! If it’s not evil 😈 and doesn’t earn him money…He’s not too interested…haha… 😆

    2. Jane May says:

      haha…wow, that’s kinda scary 😯

    3. Marc says:

      Looks like berber to me, but as to how you could even guess the amount of padding… You’re clearly more skilled than I 😛

    4. What a random question! Do you want one for yourself?!

  7. Matthew says:

    im definitely winning a pen this month

    1. Marc says:

      We don’t even know what the contest for the pens will be, or if it will even be this month. Easy now 🙂

    2. This wasn’t a monthly contest!

      1. Matthew says:

        oh, I thought he gave out pens to his top commentors monthly.. im a newbie around here

  8. Jane May says:

    Thanks John. I was beginning to think you didn’t like me 😛

    1. Jez says:

      Hi Jane, I see your back on the top commentors list after a very brief period of absense, fingers recovered now have they? :mrgreen:

      1. Jane May says:

        hahaha…well Jez, I’m juiced up and ready to go!! I’ve been on a few trips where iinternet accesibility wasn’t the greatest. But don’t fret, I here to play again. 😛

    2. I was wondering when we would see these!

      1. Aris says:

        You and Jane are on the list now. When you guys need something to sooth your fingers please let me know. 😆

        1. 😆 Well, what did you have in mind?

          1. Aris says:

            Selling you the snake oil. 😆

        2. Jane May says:

          I need something, I need something!!!

          1. This sounds kinky….

          2. Aris says:

            I was referring to the fact that you guys were on the top commentators list again. You fingers must be tired by typing all these comments. You guys need the snakes oil. 🙂

      2. About a week or so for shipping? *Laughs. Be patient!

      3. Jane May says:

        see what, my fingers in action or the pens??? If pens, I was wondering the same thing. If fingers, well, no one really saw them in the first place 😆

        1. I meant “see the pens” – I think visiting this site so often has made all of our minds dirty!

          1. Aris says:

            Ok, time out. I need to brush up my Engrish. 🙂 Nothing kinky from an old fart, Saman. 🙂

          2. Jane May says:

            LOL…ok, this is getting way off topic from the original thread…How did we ever get to kinky old farts??? 😛

  9. carl says:

    too bad if i win one because i always lost my pens when im at school:) haha

  10. Marc says:

    Cool, that’s mine on top of the pile 😉 At least you can’t easily make out the address. Otherwise other people might take to sending me free stuff… 🙂

    1. Matthew says:

      lol you have to be careful for that 😉

  11. Matt608 says:

    coool I can’t wait to get my watch! :mrgreen:

  12. Nomar says:

    Very Cool John !! Cant Wait To Get Them 😈

  13. Arstan says:

    I had this crazy idea, what if this provide this kind of service:
    they offer corp, ent. memberships to big companies where the companies can generate custom codes and offer free pens to their visitors. It’s like advertising for them and good business for

    1. Leftblank says:

      Heh, you mean you’d like a free endless supply of pens? 😉

    2. Why don’t you email them – you might get some for free!

  14. Aris says:

    Too bad my name was on the top commentators’ list for only few hours when the first few top commentators name got recycle after 5 days. But then it came down to mine and it was gone too. But pens, I can pass it this time. 😆

    1. You can’t compete with the rest of us spammers! 😛

      1. Gary Lee says:

        SAY IT LOUD! SAY IT PROUD! I will live it up for my 5 Days!

    2. Jane May says:

      It’s not just about the pens…it’s about the interactions with people you have here.

      1. Very true! I joke about spamming, but it really is about the community!

        1. Jane May says:

          For sure!!! (wait was that just spam) 😆

      2. Gary Lee says:

        I agree! You can’t start C-ommunity without the same letter you start C-ommentators

  15. Aris says:

    Hm, why there are so many blank comments up there? Comments overloaded?

  16. IndoDX says:

    Wow, I want it one too 😉 this sound interesting

  17. Can’t have too many pens.

  18. Let me rephrase that – you can’t have too many pens that actually work – as opposed to all the crappy ones I have.

  19. Zach says:

    I once again have to comment you on how good of an idea this way, to give out free pens

  20. Zach says:

    I want a pen! 😆
