@ElectronicCat

I'll definitely pass that feedback along, it's not out of the question!

Whats happening with the demand notices / letters that Keysight is sending out.  Its left me wondering when i'll get one, and kinda put my off keysight.

No one has pointed out yet that the subject line is unintentionally hilarious?  :-DD

Maybe they need all that gear back for the prizes.

I get the feeling that was originally phrased for some legal butt-covering and was simply copied into the title.

But it did make me look twice.

 If I win I promise I won't give Slughorn your Everlasting Gobstoppers, Keysight.

Not the everlasting gobstoppers!

@mrpackethead, I can't really comment further on the letters. But, know that they are a pretty limited in distribution and we're not going to go crazy on people or anything like that. Once I can say more I absolutely will, but want to leave that to the experts.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Title - yes, I see now that it is unclear!

When someone has lawyers sending out letters, and i bought some 2nd hand gear that may or may not be related to it, and then somone says " dont' worry about it".. It just reinforces that i do need to be concerned.

The lawyers told you not to worry about it. That wasn't a suggestion. ;D

Do we really need to turn this into yet another 'keysight sent letters out' topic? I think it would be better to keep this on-topic regarding the WAVE event - the people hosting WAVE probably don't know, can't know and can't comment on anything regarding the letters, so no need harassing them about it.

What do you fill in company, when you doesn't work? And how high are the chances to win? I bet less than 0.1% :) But there will always be the chance of winning:)

Whenever I fill out forms that insist on a company name, I put "Independent Designer".  I did that for my Maxim freebie and to get into Electronix.

You can honestly put in whatever you'd like, but if you work for a company putting that name would be nice.

We never reveal the odds/# of entries, but my answer tends to be "good enough to make it worth the time, but not so good that it'll hurt your odds if you have all your friends & coworkers enter.

WOW!

Silence since 8 days till now? Only 5 hours (assuming californian time zone is valid) before the start of the probably biggest sweepstake regarding testgear. Is the "Wave XXXX" really gone so much normal and usual?
I have somehow expected a little more excitement.
Just wondering...   :-//

Anyhow: First things first.

I would like to thanking Keysight for giving us the opportunity to win such testgear. (Additional: In such an unpresidented amount. No other manufacturer of testgear does this!)   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Right now there is for me only one thing left to do:
I wish us all a fair and honest sweepstake and good luck  :-+ for all eligible participiants (my rivals >:D)!

Greetings

Wow, It starts today.

btw, how to participate in the daily event? I have already registered and revisiting the event page is asking to register again  :-//

Edit:
From FAQ:
Quote
Q. How often can I enter?
A. Once per day during the event period, March 1 – 15.

Q. What time does the “day” reset, so I can enter again for the following day?
A. 12:00 AM, Pacific Time Zone (UTC-8)

Q. Do I have to enter every day to be eligible for that day’s drawing?
A. No, all valid entries for the duration of the entry period are included in each day’s drawing.

Q. I think I accidentally entered twice in one day! Am I disqualified?
A. We screen all winners after drawing their names to make sure they were following the rules. We will be reasonable and give people the benefit of the doubt (at our discretion).

Maybe your cookie wasn't preserved. Just enter again.

The live kickoff and drawing today was supposed to start at 9 am (I assume Pacific Standard Time since the contest rules say the day ends based on PST), but no show so far. Maybe they decided to broadcast live from Hawaii at 9 am, instead. ;D

Thanks @bitseeker for the new stream URL. Everything was working great until 10m before the stream was supposed to start  :palm:

Glad to be able to help out. Sorry to hear that the live stream didn't get relocated to Hawaii. That would've been nice. ;D

Maybe not a rule. Much more probably a law, called:

We're not doing one this year, but a little birdie told me that one of the YouTubers might be giving out some to folks that need them :).

It's honestly a LOT of work to do on our end, and we just didn't have the time to make it happen this year.
