    OK, first of all you guys are lucky I'm bound by blood to pass these on in our contests instead of squirreling em away, cause this set is INCREDIBLE! If you havent read up on it, check here:

    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htf/...pril-29-a.html

    Rules this round:
    ---
    All ya gotta do is post below ONCE and one time ONLY, with your favorite latin saying and what it translates to in english.

    Will pick a winner sometime after 10 PM tomorrow, so be sure to be in before then, anyone who posts AFTER that but before I do the rolls is eligble but I wont guarantee your entry unless its before 10PM EST April 11, capiche?

    -Open to residents of US/Canada only.
    -Winners must have been registered HTF members before 11:59 PM EST Thursday April 10 2008.
    -Limiting winners to one HTF prize a month max, so please don't enter if you have won anything from HTF in the last month.
    -HTF staff prohibited from winning.
    -All decisions by me and the HTF owners are final in case of a dispute or tie =)
    -Editing posts or threads will result in disqualification.
    -Void where prohibited etc. This is done for entertainment value only and no prize substitutions are possible.

    Simple and logical enough?

    1 Winner will be selected at random using Random.org's random integer tool!

    So, get those phrases in!


    Thanks Wikipedia!

    Sam
    Edit: had wrong date for yesterday, fixed it. You needed to be registered with HTF yesterday or before.

    "E Pluribus Unim"

    Meaning "Many uniting into one" another more accurate translation "Out of many, one"
