Do You Have Paraskavedekatriaphobia?

By | June 5, 2014 in General IT

Turn the scary into rewarding this Friday the 13th!

Paraskavedekatriaphobia is the scientific term for a morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th. Chances are you’re not afflicted with this particular phobia, but with next Friday being June 13th, you may just have a teeny tiny bit of the jitters.

So we want to do something for you to change the scary into the rewarding.

A Reward for Your Scariest IT Disaster

Share with us your worst or scariest (I guess which one depends on your personal outlook on life ;)) IT issue that you’ve had to deal with in your career.

Post your story by any means you see fit – written words, video, cartoon, etc. – on our Facebook page, or if you’re really shy, you may email us at Make sure to get your entries in by Tuesday, the 17th of June.

Our panel of judges (aka our marvelous marketing team) will sit together on Wednesday, June 18th and declare a winner based on the true depth of catastrophic disaster and misfortune that you describe to us. So give it your best shot. Multiple entries – if you are unfortunate to have so many misadventures – are absolutely acceptable and welcome.

Tip: A video entry, perhaps a re-enactment – yikes! – has high score potential.

The winner will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card, and we promise to have some cool consolation prizes as well. So please get going – disclose those stories that you probably only really want to forget. Imagine yourself on a psychiatrist’s couch – you talk, we listen, and instead of you paying big bucks when the session is over, we pay you!

Please share your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter, Google+, or Facebook where we are always listening.
