Computer Ed is a radio show about computing that airs once a week on WJPF radio hosted by Edward Crisler, aka Computer Ed. The show is presented on Sunday afternoons at 1:00 PM CST. Now, not all of our readers can tune in to AM 1340 to listen to the show, but you can pick up a live stream from the Internet.

As an added inducement, Computer Ed has put together some great prizes for its listeners. To participate in the contest, all you have to do is listen for the “Code Word” of the week during the show which will be followed by a response word. To enter, simply email the response word, along with your name and city and state to [email protected].

More details on the contest can be found on the Computer Ed blog, so check it out and remember to Listen Live on WJPF on Sundays at 1:00 PM CST.

Sounds good but i dont like the conditions. "Entering in the contest means you give the Computer Ed Radio Show permission to put your name and location on the blog and announce it on the air. You also give permission for your email address and contact information to be given to the companies providing the prizes if you are a winner."

Bascially what that means is that when you enter the contest you have given me permission to say on the air that SpeedCrazy from Somewhere, MO has won this week. Then your contact information with shipping information and email is proviuded to the company that you won the prize from so they can ship it to you. Each week the entries will be deleted except for the winners and once the companies have the data and confirmed they are shipping I remove that as well. I understand the concerns but it is common practice for winners to be announced.

SpeedCrazy, I have updated the contest post to make this more clear. Thanks for pointing out a potential concern.

Thanks for your quick response but the announcement was not my concern. It was having my details given out over the internet to anyone who wants them.

I guess I can understand that, a name and a city does not seem like enough info to me to have a concern but I can understand if you feel it does.
