I’m not a fan of rules, but in this competition, I must put forward a few:

  1. Absolutely no spamming/pointless posts (I will be keeping an eye out for people whose posts add no value and will, fairly, remove cheaters from the competition.)
  2. Forum Administrators and Moderators are not eligible for this competition.
  3. Entries, from any where in the world, are welcome.
  4. If you want to say “thanks” for a post, please use the Thanks button instead of posting.

The first 100 people to comment will be sent, by Facebook mail, a free commercial license for LAlarm (worth $50.00 / about £33). We’d also appreciate it if your comment had a suggestion for the LAlarm Developers.

Good luck!
