The next big project
Posted by justfred.ca on November 11th, 2007
Look...up in the sky...it's a bird...it's a plane...it's Something Else
We're still working on that next big project we started teasing you about a month or so ago.
The final delivery method is still being debated, but we're down to two choices. And the content is adding up: only 4 hours a week ago, 12 hours yesterday, and more than 14.5 hours as I write this.
We hope to have it ready for our first birthday on the weekend.
Best get busy, eh?

Contest 49 – Whatsis – Closed
Posted by justfred.ca on November 7th, 2007
It happens every once in a while: nobody gets the right answer.
One member got the first half - Christmas wrapping paper - but the second piece remains a mystery.
So here's the answer: it's a hat stretcher.
Not really. Just wanted to tease you. We'll save it for another contest.
Update: So now you know what the easy half of this contest was:Christmas wrapping paper.
Now, guess the hard part: what's that at the end of the video?
The answer on Saturday.
So what is that photo on the home page?
Tell us what our secret whatsis is - and you have to be precise - you could win a secret prize. You have until the next home page update to enter your answers http://justfred.ca/contests.php">here.
We'll reveal all on Friday.

Scooping the New York Times
Posted by justfred.ca on November 5th, 2007
You read it first on justFRED.ca
We don't expect it to happen every day, but we really did scoop the New York Times and a whole bunch of other traditional media outlets when we told you about the new paper getting ready to launch in Woodstock.
But that's ok - they're in New York and we're a heck of a lot closer to the action.
You can read the http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/29/business/worldbusiness/29irving.html?ref=business">first NYT story here and then http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/05/business/media/05irving.html?ref=business">the follow-up on Friday's court ruling that gives Ken Langdon the right to compete.
Sure is fun beating the big guys to the punch, once in a while. But now we'll get back to our regular programming.

Contest 48 – Home Page Update – Contest Closed
Posted by justfred.ca on November 2nd, 2007
Jennifer is the winner of this one: she spotted the blog headline listing on the home page. It's in semi-test mode down in the far right-hand corner. We'll be expanding the listing soon to make it easier to see what's new in our blogs. (Kudos to Stephen for getting it working...)
We've added the beginning of a new feature to the justFRED.ca home page...can you spot it?
All correct entries go into the Magic Hat and we'll announce the winner of the FREE Pizza from Pizza Shack on Monday morning.
