The Animation Contest Is Now Closed!
Thursday July 1st, 1999
Thanks to everyone who entered, and everyone that voted. The winner is Klaus Malorny of Germany, with this animation:
Klaus also won second place (see update below), followed by Marc Stoecker and Phil Moliner's entry in third, and Tomi Sarvela in fourth place. We will soon have prize information up, as well as a gallery of all animations for public viewing.
Again, thanks to all for their participation! We have some other contest ideas that we are mulling over, and we'll have information for you soon...
UPDATE: Well, incredibly (but not surprisingly), while attempting to turn off the voting mechanism, I managed to completely wipe out the vote. However, we did have the winners already decided, so I don't feel *too* bad (just dumb). On another note, Klaus Malorny, the winner of both first and second places in the contest, has generously offered to give up the second-place prize, so the second-place winner is now Marc Stoecker and Phil Moliner, with Tomi Sarvela in third.
UPDATE (2): Edwin Woudt of the Grendel (Java Mail/News) team managed to pull the results page from his cache. A few results came in after the contest closed (I think there were 958 total), but the final result is the same. Click "Full Article" below to see them.

this is a nice one-I guess it won because it matches that purple chrome that I hate so much :)
Still, it's a nice throbber and was my second choice
