@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.
