And it has arrived!

I was so impatient that I actually drove to Port Elizabeth to go and fetch the package, instead of waiting for delivery tomorrow.
My wife and daughter is planning a wedding and had some appointments tonight, so I figured I needed toys to keep me busy!

Thank you:
Sokoloff - without your financial contribution the courier option to South Africa would not have been possible. You opened up the possibility to change it from an UK only, to a World wide competition. I really, really appreciate it.

Deridex - you added what you described as a weak bench power supply. For me, it is what I dreamed of. For such a long time I wanted a 30V bench supply where I could control voltage and especially current and now I can. Thank you, thank you!

Frozenfrogz - you were kind enough to donate from your own stock the oscilloscope , component tester, various cables, screw drivers and various bits, calculater, pliers, Allan keys, 3D printed products done by you, knife, 3rd hand with magnifier, logic analyzer and whatever else is in the picture that I haven't mentioned, aswell the additional cost for the courier in upgrading the package, due to the weight basically doubling after the power supply was added. Thank you so much.

Thank you guys. I really appreciate it. Now I need to learn how to use the oscilloscope. Everything else I already played with.
:D

I - and I'm sure a great many others - am heartened by you enthusiastic words of appreciation.  I am also appreciative of the effort made by those who contributed to the bundle and getting it to you.  Please keep us informed of a project or two as you go along ... we like seeing your skills develop - and to help if we can.

As for the scope - yes, there is a bit to learn, but making sure you are safe is step one.

To that end, this is typically near the top of the customary "recommended viewing" list...

I gotta admit that i didn't think about the additional shipping costs when i contributed the powersupply  :palm:
But i'm more than happy that it arrived in good condition.
I think the forum is a good place if you need help, but you can always ask me if you need advice.

Thank you for the offer. I checked online and I think the only manual I found was in German.
I haven't tried Google translate on it yet, but I will definitely ask for your advice/input should the need arise.

Well...

If you scan through the thread it should be clear, that the giveaway has already been gifted to HecticZA some time ago (therefore "drawn and shipped").
However, welcome to the forums :)

Kind regards,
Frederik

Cool
Let me guess - you're trying to get your post count up by just adding the same single word reply to random old threads?

Actually contributing to a discussion is not that hard. Try it. You might like it.

There might be a bit more to it than that.  They have been banned.

Hello Steven,

thank you for sharing your story.
Sadly this give away has already ended and the winner was already drawn and got his tools delivered to South Africa (see title). The thread is from last year and got zombified from a bot entry yesterday.

Wishing you all the best and some luck to maybe snatch one of Daves Keysight scopes. :)

Kind regards,
Frederik

Sorry for the confusion on my part. There are a lot of different contests going on at the moment. Thank you for your kind words and thoughts.

Please lock expired contests. Nobody needs to be accidentally necro'ing these topics.

Can only be done by an admin. Also, I don’t think it is really a big problem on this forum. It happens occasionally but who cares?
In this instance the confusion (2018 vs 2019) has been resolved and everyone is on its way again.
There is nothing wrong with having to actually read the OPs and act accordingly IMO.

Edit: Also, I think it was a bit unnecessary to comment here AND open another thread with the same contents. Does not really promote your agenda...
