SSLmatic SSL Certificate Giveaway Winners

By  on  

On Monday I shared with you my experience with SSLmatic, a provider of cheap SSL certificates. SSLmatic was nice enough to give me five SSL certificates to give away. Four days, one random-PHP-script, and many FTW's later, our winners are:

  • Matt (Jason Lee) - Jason Lee was good 10 years ago but has gone down hill, in my opinion.
  • Fábio M. Costa (Johnny Depp) - I'm a huge Depp fan. I have a framed photo of him in my cube at work...that's not weird, right?
  • Jeremy Parrish (Jim Parsons) - There's no further proof that this choice was random than the fact that I'm allowing someone who gave that name to have a free SSL certificate.
  • Timothy (Tina Fey) - Watched 30 Rock for the first time a few weeks ago and it's been DVR'ing ever since. She's quite a talent.
  • Babatunde Adeyemi (Jason Stathom) - The movie Snatch is unbelievable but ever since this guy's been putting out crap. He went from a manly man to rubbish.

Thank you to everyone that entered!
