Welcome to The Red Ferret Journal – tantalisingly tasteful, tacky and taut tech trivia.

Should The Ferret have competitions? Everyone else is running them, should we small mammals do likewise? Comment one way or another and we’ll decide. No comments are a vote for no. If we do go for it, we’ll have to find some suitably Ferrety type goodies to donate to the cause, won’t we?


  • ya we small mammals too should have a contest. unlike others please let it be something you can ship to india. keep up the good work.

  • Ah, but Prasanth, you seem to have been outvoted by the silence of the majority. :-) No comments, no comps. It looks as though Ferrety readers have no need of such frivolity? Heh!

  • Maybe you just weren’t specific enough about “competitions.” Would they be things like track meets where we must shower afterwards? Would we be competing against other small mammals that can no doubt run faster than we can?

    Maybe if you teased us with photos of the automobiles and the travel destinations you plan to award as prizes there would be more response.

    Seriously though, I didn’t comment because I was unsure of what you meant by competitions.

  • OoooOOooooo… A competition sounds great!Small mammals duking it out in an iron cage battle of the wits!

    As long as it's not an Iron Chef competition, which I'm sure small mammals would not like to be a part of, it's all good.

  • I’m not sure about what kind of competition you are thinking of. A suggestion might be to hold a test one to see the response, and move forward (or drop it) based on that.
