Stay alert for “prize offers” over the New Year’s holiday

Are you working over New Year, like Sophos Support and SophosLabs?

If so, here’s a bit of fun – official, educational fun – to tide you over the hours when everyone else is taking your presence in the office for granted.

A crossword puzzle for computer geeks!

You can solve the puzzle online or using a downloadable PDF.

If you complete the puzzle successfully, whether on-screen on on paper, capture a screenshot, take a picture with your mobile phone or scan it in, and email it to me.

The first ten correct entries received before the end of the first Friday in January, i.e. before 2011-01-07T23:59:59-12 in RFC3339 notation, will win a Sophos multi-function pocket knife.

If you get stuck, your favourite search engine will help you greatly. If you are still stuck, try emailing me for hints.

PS: Sophos staff and family are encouraged to enter – why not prove your skills publicly? – but are not eligible to win prizes. (You can, however, purchase a pocket knife from Marketing for $24.95. Or a six-pack of Guinness. The 440ml tins with the widget, cheers.)
