I remembered.... but I don't know if I was quick enough (again).

Picked up a chill on the weekend and last night it turned into a head cold.  Feels like there are razor blades down my throat and somebody put a vice across the front of my head.  A bit of adrenaline got me through, but it felt like wading through molasses.

@Brumby
I take it you were not a "Winner, winner - chicken dinner" from last week?

Maybe winning one this week will overcome the cold with all the endorphins and whatever flowing through your body!  >:D

Good luck anyway!

@Chig
I was home but got too wrapped up in sorting out my resistor 'collection' and didn't remember until about 12:45.  :palm:

The closest I came in last week's competition was some chicken and corn soup for lunch today.  Nice hot soup felt good going down.

In the remote event of winning this week, I will still be feeling like crap - but I would have a smile on my face.

Thank you for the wishes.



Oh crap.

I just read the question properly.   |O

I answered for the wrong scope - and the answers were not the same.    |O |O |O |O |O

Blame it on the cold/flu rather than any brain fade.  ;D

Anyway, I suspect we may end up not being able to use the scope properly (should we happen to win) due to sustained brain damage from all the head-banging we are doing!  :-DD :-DD :-DD

You could be right.  I can see myself setting up a Lissajous figure and leaving it run.  Makes a bench look interesting to an outsider...





Yeah ... that's all I've got at the moment.

I'm wondering if any of the winners have started getting their scopes shipped yet?
My name was picked on the 8th and I e-mailed the forms they sent me on the 11th then got back an automated response so it would be interesting to get an idea when the first winners start getting their stuff. Of course I don't know how many of them are following this thread.

It doesn't matter if it takes a while to sort all of these scopes and winners out but I'm sure most winners are hoping nothing gets mixed up.
I'm also wondering if the winners get a tracking number like when you buy stuff online or will they just randomly show up at their address?

I really hate to sound impatient considering I'm getting a great scope for free but since I've never won anything, this is not the time for me to be shy about asking questions.

First of all: Congratulations!    :-+ :clap: :clap:

IIRC: The scopes will be shipped after the sweepstakes.
(Probably in one big bunch, all won scopes at once.)
They will be shipped from the factory in Taiwan. (Or this time from China?)

This year there is something different:
This year is no distributor asked. It seems, the scopes will be send to the
regional KS offices and from there to the winner.
The last part (KS office -> Winner) should give a message with tracking
information for you.

Direct shipment from the factory to the winner (with message about tracking
information) is a possible solution, too.
But this would be bad for winners in the EU: In this case occurs Import Tax.

Anyways: No reason to worry. It is simply too early at this time.

My guess: Your scope arrives in the second week of April.

That sounds reasonable.  :-+
I'm glad I got up the nerve to ask because I didn't want to sound like I was annoyed and it's easy to misinterpret the tone of people's messages online.

By the way... Are you an employee of Keysight, or maybe a distributor?

No. I am just one of the big, bad, evil germans  >:D which nowadays try to stay calm, keep their mind and being friendly.  :)
(Unfortunatly there be exceptions, as everywhere. E.g. the unforgettable german hero from the KS sweepstake last year,
let´s call him "Sebastian"...)  :palm:

How I have knowledge about the handling of the won oscilloscopes?
The answer is simple: I have observed the scopemonth 2016 and the Agilent/Keysight sweepstakes since many years.   8)

And: No, you are not annoying. You be excited about your new oscilloscope and it is hard for you to wait for the arrival of it.
That should be very easy understandable for everyone...

Your awareness is appreciated, but relax...

The scopes should ship directly from the factory to the winners within 6 weeks from 31-Mar. It's much, much easier to deal with fulfillment all at once. But, if you have something going on and just can't wait to get your scope, it's potentially possible to get some out the door earlier. To make that happen, talk to the individual that contacts you with the winner info & forms.

Well, that's it for me on the Australian competition.

I wasted a couple of extra seconds refreshing, when the question link had already appeared - just in a different spot to previously.   :palm:

At least I think I have the answer right this time and the Captcha didn't need a lot of typing, but after several attempts, I am somewhat philosophical.  We'll see.

It's been fun, though.



To Daniel and Keysight - thank you for the opportunity to participate.

I was out when the comp was run - tried to use the smart phone to enter but I'm so slow using a phone that by the time I got my contact details in and started to search for the answer I somehow wiped the data already entered. |O

Gave up at this point as I would have been too late in any case (I might have had a chance using the PC at home - I'm much quicker on that than the phone). :palm:

Oh well - there is always next year (I hope). 

Thanks for the chance anyway Daniel and Keysight! :clap:

The results for the Australian competition are finalised.... and, no, I am not among them  :(

Congratulations to all the winners - and a big thank you to Keysight for making the effort to bring something down under.  :-+


One wonders what may be planned for next year  ;D
