Aaaaand the winners are ...

First of all, thank you all for visiting this page and posting a comment. It was really difficult to pick three of you so I decided to use a script which randomly choose the winners. Here is the script:

var shuffle = function(array) {
    var tmp, current, top = array.length;
    if(top) while(--top) {
        current = Math.floor(Math.random() * (top + 1));
        tmp = array[current];
        array[current] = array[top];
        array[top] = tmp;
    return array;
users = shuffle(users);
for(var i=0; i<3; i++) {
