The entries are in, the votes have been tallied, and I’m pleased to announce the winner of the CSS Mastery iPod competition.

The first prizes of a 512MB iPod Shuffle goes to Daniel Costello for his excellent, CSI inspired rail against tables. Top marks fella!

Heh, Daniel’s entry is good, reminds me of Reservoir Dogs for some reason.

I liked the book made from scratch and clearly with crayon!

I’d have won if I had illegal possession of a firearm.
