Giving me free stuff

So, as I've mentioned on this blog, I've gotten emails that claim to be from some famous people.

According to these emails, these famous people are trying to give me things like gift cards or gift card codes --- but the few links I've tried to click on didn't work.

I got yet another "famous person" email today trying to give me another gift card or gift code.

Well, the tradition continues some more::: I logged into Cortex on my Forge today, and was greeted by a pop-up-screen that said I'm being granted the free full-game entitlement to a certain game.

It's not unheard of for OUYA/Cortex to give away free games, but this would be my first free entitlement --- but there was a problem::::

I suppose I was supposed to press A while the game icon was highlighted in the pop-up because I went straight to the OK button and when I checked to see if I got the entitlement, I didn't.

The instructions on claiming the entitlement weren't clear, and now I've lost my opportunity.

But, at least, it seems nice to know that people are trying to give me stuff.

I mean, if famous people really are trying to give me gift cards to certain stores and stuff: wow, that's great, great to be recognized for my effort,

but there's a possibility that's a scam and it doesn't work anyway the few times I tried to accept.

And Cortex tried to give me something for free but that didn't work either. Hmmm.

Oh well, it's the thought that counts right now I guess. :)
