Edit.
I just noticed Dave has closed the entries for the competition and I didn't notice the final count before closing but it doesn't seem like he weeded out very many. And good on him for that.

If I remember correctly, the count was somewhere in the mid 900's...but I could be wrong

It got to 898 and I saved this snapshot just after it was locked, looks like it is currently being thinned out.

Looks like the list has been culled quite a bit. However, I did see some remaining entries with low post counts. So, all is not lost if you're a newcomer.

Can't wait for the draw.
I TEA.

I wonder if we ask real nicely, would they release general stats on that?

I imagine it would be commercially sensitive information.  If I had just spent half a million dollars on marketing I would not hand out information relating to how successful it had been.

Well... Yeah.  Still would be really interesting to have been able to see how many interested parties they had and where from.

Anyone else think Dave is drawing out the results so he can play an April Fools day prank on us? Eg OOPS a big truck emptied the dumpster.

I'll put my money on his draw occurring after the Keysight giveaways have been wrapped up.  This will give him undivided attention and it will make a bigger impact than doing it in the middle of Keysight's campaign.

There's also the possibility he has other things keeping him busy, preventing him from completing the preparation steps to his draw.

I suspect Dave is working on his April fools Video for this year. Maybe it will be the draw.

Oh no have I given it away Dave, Sorry. ^-^

We will all get PMs saying that we have won and have to sign a document stating we will pay an undisclosed sum in taxes.  Just wait until all the posts claiming winning prize has ruined their life appear.  >:D
