Today is a big day for us: our site is 6 MONTHS OLD. And, as promised, we have some cool prizes to give away. For our celebration, ESET was very kind to sponsor us with 6 one-year licenses of ESET Smart Security 4 for 6 lucky winners. If you want to know if you have won, click on Read more.
How the selection was done
We took the list of people which subscribed to our e-mail newsletter by January 4th, 2010. The total number of subscribers was 326. We removed those subscribers which did not activate their subscriptions. Then, we eliminated the e-mail subscriptions which were duplicates. Unfortunately quite a few folks were not fair-play and subscribed using multiple e-mail addresses. We cleaned up the list so that only one of these multiple e-mails addresses remained per person. You know... give everyone a fair chance and not favor the cheaters.
Next, we exported the list into Excel and had 6 random functions generate the winners. We closed Excel, opened it and recorded all the lucky numbers.
List of WINNERS
The lucky winners are listed in the screenshot below. All of them will be contacted by e-mail shortly. Those who do not reply by January 12, will be taken out from the list of winners and we will have Excel generate other lucky ones instead.
Congratulations to all winners and a big thank you to all our subscribers. We hope you've enjoyed our articles and you will remain our faithful readers.
Also, a big thanks to ESET for sponsoring us. This competition wouldn't have taken place without them.
UPDATE - NEW WINNER EXTRACTED: one of the winners did not reply so far to our messages. Therefore, since we have one license left to give, we extracted a new random winner. For details, see the screenshot above.
