VS2008 Demo Challenge

Last week or so, I stumbled on to the site for the Visual Studio 2008 Demo Challenge. The gist of the contest is to make a video explaining why VS 2008 is great, and then win stuff. Your video is played backed in a Silverlight app that your host at

So I make a video, and I think it's pretty funny.  I setup an app with Expression Encoder, and I'm feeling great.  I go to submit the video on the contest site and ... nothing. The site seems broken, which would explain the lack of videos in the gallery. (I had a bad feeling about the absence of competition.)

I just don't have good luck with Microsoft contests. :-(

Click here to watch the video. You'll need Silverlight 1.0 to view it.

Update: I just heard that the contest died. Would someone still like to give me an Xbox for kicks? :-)
