Name that Ware Contest Rules
The spirit of this competition is to teach people how to think about reverse engineering hardware by example. Thus, there is an emphasis on trying to disclose the process of arriving at an answer, and not so much the correctness of the answer itself. So, if you happen to work for the company that makes the product I picture on this page, and simply state what it is, you will most likely not win the contest. However, if your logic is well-reasoned and clear, and you arrive at an incorrect answer, you run a high chance of winning.
At the end of each month, bunnie will judge all posts in the comment area for the page. The post will be archived as a permanent page with the winning comment will be called out, along with any additional comments I may have about the ware or the comment. In order to recieve your prize, you must leave me at least your email address in your comment posting (the email will not show up in the comment posting itself).
The prize may vary from month to month, but nominally, the winner may choose from either receiving a signed copy of the Special Edition of my book, “Hacking the Xbox”, a $10 gift card for Amazon.com, or select prizes from the bunniestudios merch page. Some months I may chose a particularly difficult ware, and increase the prize. Other months, I may chose a no-brainer ware and just make the prize having your name entered into the Name that Ware hall of fame.
bunnie reserves the right to judge entries on any metric he choses. Also, by entering a post, you are agreeing to have your post distributed under a Creative Commons non-commercial, share-alike, attribution license. In other words, don’t post anything you feel is proprietary or you would like to reserve for future commercial efforts.
