    Implement a system where you can text message the code on the bottom of the cap or inside a badge and see if you win that way the User will not have to wait to get a computer. Sure you won't be able to get all that valuable information you would when they would register normally, but gee golly it would be  convenient.

    You don't have this already? Pretty much every soda promotion here in the UK involves texting a code in these days.

    Then they couldn't target ads and suggestive sell you crap.  If they are giving away a trip to <insert location> courtesy of Orbitz.com or something part of the argeement with Orbitz to help sponsor the prize is all that advertising they can put in front of you by having to go to the contest site and enter your code.  In the end it is all about the company and sponsor and nothing about you.  Just my opinion.

    anyhow, i'm assuming this thread was started by an american which would make sense as txt messaging isn't big yet in the states.

    From Wikipedia ( so it MUST be true Wink )

    A version of the drink was marketed for three years in the UK during the late 1990s. Many believe the urban legend that Mountain Dew is illegal (in its American formulation) to sell in the UK due to its high caffeine content and excessive artificial ingredients. However, the version sold in the UK was a lurid green color and contained far more caffeine, synthetic sugars, and artificial colorings than the American version. It even discolored the teeth and tongue of its drinkers for several hours after consumption.

    read the rest of the entry! - I'm not going to try drinking it again!

    Ladies and gents - please!  Colas are fantastic for cleaning the terminals of your car battery, but they are not fit for human consumption.

    I use Pepsi for this... works great.

    In the Navy we used a kool-aid type drink served on the mess decks to clean floor drains and brass fixtures.  It was lovingly called Bug-Juice.  I never drank that stuff.  Smiley  I still drink the soda though.  A cold Mountain Dew while coding is quite nice.

    In Canada Mountain Dew has no caffeine in it but recently they came out with a new Dew that they call an "energy drink" which is just American Mountain Dew with a different name so it has caffeine.

    I don't really drink pop except for sometimes when I go to KFC/Taco Bell.

    You need the Pepsi at Taco Bell to kill the e coli.  Tongue Out
