Over at, the best question and answer site for geeks with computer questions, they are celebrating their one year anniversary with a contest that includes some serious prizes.

All of the prizes are based on your interaction in the site, so it’s simply a matter of signing up, logging in, and participating—whoever does the best job of answering questions will win the prizes. Not only that, but the contest is going on for four weeks with four winners each week, so there’s lots of opportunity to win.

Here’s the details on the prizes they are giving away:

  • The best rookie performance of a new user in that week, as measured by the Super User leagues, will receive a 32 GB USB key.
  • The highest reputation produced in that week, as measured by the Super User leagues, will receive a 22″ LCD monitor.
  • The “most awesome” new Super User question or answer that week, that most embodies the type of Q&A that make the site great — as judged by the Super User community moderators — will receive a two bay NAS device.

Want to participate? Head over to and sign up or login, and start answering some questions—or even asking some of your own. You can earn reputation from asking, answering, commenting, or just generally being helpful on the site.

Note: The people at Super User are good friends of ours, and this contest is for real.
