MIX 09 Announced

10KPDC's just out of the way and it's already time to start thinking about MIX. I saw this logo on the website and thought we were going to be expected to run a 10K in the desert. Fortunately it's 10K of storage and a challenge to do as much as you can with only 10k. There's also the traditional restyle challenge to redesign the MIX home page. Both challenges carry prizes including entry to MIX 09 and hotel accommodation.
