Naugatuck, Connecticut – (The Hosting News) – July 28, 2008 – Web hosting magazine, Ping! Zine, will host its Harley Geek Giveaway, featuring a 2009 Harley Davidson Nightster Motorcycle, valued at over $12,000, at the ongoing HostingCon 2008 event.
Keith Duncan, Ping! Zine publisher noted, ”At HostingCon, we’re out to make it clear to the world that even geeks can be cool. This year’s ‘Harley Geek Giveaway’ allows key industry decision makers and technology leaders to take a chance at the motorcycle life, ditching their hybrid cars and parentsâ€™ station wagon for a warm-blooded Harley Davidson Nightster Motorcycle that roars so loud it can be heard even within the windowless walls of the nearest datacenter.”
To enter for a chance to win the grand prize, HostingCon attendees can visit Ping! Zine’s booth #525 in the exhibit hall and sign up for a free subscription to Ping! Zine’s print magazine. Each new subscriber will be given one ticket to place in the official drawing box. At 2:00PM on Wednesday, July 30, three tickets will be drawn randomly, providing three contestants with an opportunity to draw a key of their choice from a bowl of various keys. Only the correct key will unlock a padlock on a box containing the key for the 2009 Harley Davidson Nightster Motorcycle.
