Wave 2020 Official Thread!
« on: February 12, 2020, 05:51:46 pm »
Hey everyone!

I'm a little late starting this, but registration is open now for the big giveaway!

You can sign up here:
http://bit.ly/EEV2020
If you use this link you'll get an extra entry!
If you already signed up, you can put a +wave or +eevblog in your email address before the @ and that's 100% we won't flag you. For example, if you signed up with daniel@example.com you could sign up again with daniel+eevblog@example.com and you'll get the bonus entries.

Event details / giveaway specifics are here:
https://blogs.keysight.com/blogs/tech.entry.html/2020/01/21/keysight_wave_2020o-cM58.html

And the first drawing will happen on the Keysight Labs YouTube channel here:

The usual stipulations apply, and FAQs are here:

Good luck & happy testing!

-Daniel

I forgot to add +EEVBlog or +wave so I'll probably get flagged... Oh well.

You should be fine, we really only get snippy with the people who are taking significant advantage of the registration system.

I added "+eevblog" to my email address as instructed but did not receive a confirmation email after 30 min. No it was not in the spam folder either, it never came  to the mail server. Anyone else is having problems with the confirmation email ?

That "+" thing is something that not all mail servers actually support as far as I know.
If they use it to respond with the +, you will not receive the mail if your server does not understand it.

Those that I know that support it are GMail, and two small german mail providers Mailbox.org and Posteo.de. There are for sure more though...

The list of eligible countries seems to vary from year to year quite a bit.

My postfix install supported the '+' syntax by default.

I registered, but put None as the company, since I only do academic (non-paid, not-for-profit University projects, including in one educational fusor project) and open hardware/public domain hobbyist-level stuff in electronics.  Let me know if that is not acceptable.

I'm also having the issue of no confirmation email. I received the wave 2020 email a while back saying to register but never the confirmation. I suppose it doesn't matter too much considering my chances but just thought I'd add myself to that list.

@Nominal Animal, that's 100% fine.

@maginnovision and @Bud can you DM me your email address and I'll check it?

@kripton2035 you can go ahead and do the +eevblog and you'll be fine. You might need to use a clean browser instance, though.

I entered today -- actually I think I entered twice because I clicked the "Enter Now" button after confirming my email.

Question:  When I come back tomorrow, should I just click the "Enter Now" button, or do I fill out the form again?

Thanks.

If it works like it did for me, just hitting the button should be enough.
Last week the button was not available yet. Yesterday evening after I got home from work, I opened the page with the link posted first here, and just clicked the button.
If I remember correctly it worked like that last year as well.

Browser: Firefox (latest), AdBlock+, no other Addons.

@Keysight DanielBogdanoff, I received the e-mail confirmation only on the first entry (subject line: Wave 2020 Entry - Almost Finished). All subsequent entries were not acknowledged. Is that alright?

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

@rsjsouza yes, that is how it should work. If the button changes or grays-out your entry is included.

@apblog the system won't let you get extra entries, and if you keep your cookies turned on / uncleared you'll only have to select the button.

Congratulations! I was wondering if we'd get any EEVBlog members winning. The first year there seemed to be loads, but not so many in subsequent years - or maybe people were just quieter about it.

What did you win? All but the 2nd or 1st tier prizes I'd probably be giving away to someone I know.
