    Last issues Winners

    Well it does seem that the competition page will be here to stay for a bit longer, after all we are getting many more entries than the poor old crossword ever got! So without further ado here are last issues lucky winners.

    Studio 24 - winners

    We had quite a large number of entries for the mission statement competition, and most of the entrants spotted that the statement belonged to TAU Press. However a couple of you said it belonged to Acorn User, no no no, Acorn User is a magazine, TAU Press are the publishers. The mission statement came from the TAU Press website. Which means that although he provided the fullest re-write of the mission statement, along with a nice long erudite explanation, David Llewellyn-Jones, doesn't win. Anyway here are those who did win..<./P>

    David Hawes with....

    Our mission statement is to increase sales and enhance marketing and PR activity by publishing brochures, magazines and catalogues; additionally to provide viable media products that educate and entertain readers.

    A massive 9 changes, well done.

    Dr S. Curry with....

    Our mission statement is to increase sales by enhanced marketing and PR activity through the publication of brochures, magazines and catalogues. These publications are viable media products intended to educate and entertain readers.

    Another superb re-write, perhaps we shall soon see ones of these gracing the TAU Press website?

    DrawWorks - winners

    You may well remember that we asked you the price of the Bush RISC OS Set top box in Asda. The correct price was 29.98, keen readers will have spotted that this information was in the Insider column from the last issue. Even so a couple of readers still managed to get the wrong answer, so hang your heads in shame. The winners chosen are as follows.

    Kevin Simpson
    Steven Morton
