Dangerous Prototypes Free PCB Build

EDIT: DP put my post on their site! I got a nice email from Lynn with a new PCB code and the board is on its way!

So some time ago I entered on of Dangerous Prototypes' free PCB contests. I left my name in a comment box and then, on my first try, they sent me a code! How nice of them. With the code, I went into their PCB Drawer and found this USB IR shield. I gave them my code back and they sent me the PCB. It came all the way from the Netherlands and had a neat stamp and a nice Dangerous Prototypes business card. If you have five minutes on a Sunday, maybe you should comment on the free PCB post. What's especially cool is that if you populate the PCB they send you, they'll give you another code to get another board.
    This is what it looked like when it arrived -
