I want to thank Radium and the SA Crew for building an awesome interface for the writers, and a great frontpage for the readers. Before you overclock your computer to send as much hate mail as possible, though, give us a little time to work the bugs out. SA is a beast with about a million pages of content formatted every which way, so the conversion won't be an instant process- but it'll be worth it. And to celebrate Something Awful's redesign, I am throwing my own little contest.
I wrote all of this week's article at my boring desk job on a tiny legal pad. Now's your chance to own a piece of SA history by winning these very sheets of paper! Don't get too excited. To enter the contest, you will have to create some kind of art featuring the animal to your right fighting some kind of mythical creature (Nosferatus are okay, too). When you're done, e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries must be recieved by 2/25/07. Thousands will play, few will win.
I will personally mail the handwritten article to one lucky fan, along with any other trinkets/anthrax I have lying around the house. Good luck! The winner and runners up will be featured in my next Daily Dirt!
Thanks again to Microwave for contributing some great art to my article!
I have raised over $300 participating in quilting bees for the American Quilting Bee Society so I think I deserve at least seven minutes of your time.

The Daily Dirt serves as a column for all Something Awful frontpage writers to write about, well, whatever they feel like putting into the Daily Dirt!
