Borderlands 2 Loot Hunt Begins

Borderlands 2 $100,000 Loot Hunt gets underway today, a day later than was originally announced (thanks Neutronbeam). Here are the official rules and here's the lawyer-free version:

Ambitious loot hunters can enter the sweepstakes simply by taking down the daily targets once a day for a total of 28 entries. In addition to the many weekly sponsored prizes, one lucky loot hunter will win a grand prize of $50,000, and four others will win varying amounts of cash totaling another $50,000. Only US players are eligible for cash prizes and sponsored prizes. However, all players worldwide can participate in the Loot Hunt, and the exclusive community goals granting access to unique in-game loot.

Out of the Blue

I want to add a front panel with a card reader to my new PC, and I was excited at how the NZXT Aperture M has a grid on its face that matches my CM Storm Scout 2 case nicely. But, while this has a good rating on Amazon, there are many notes there about how easy it is to bend the pins in the CF slot, which I find bothersome. Compact Flash is obviously not the most commonly used type of media card these days, so that's not a deal breaker, but I figured I'd ask if anyone had a recommendation for this type of unit that combines functionality and cool looks before I commit to see if there's anything cool out there that I've missed.
