    Ok the 4000D has landed and the parcel will be opened yesterday/today.

    I'd like to thank all those that took part and help raise some much needed money for AmiBay.

    A small donation was made to EAB in line with the number of tickets their members purchased.

    A total of £132.57 was raised for AmiBay.

    It was certainly a learning experience and lessons have been learned if this is done again in the future

    Just to reiterate thanks to Tim and all those that took part.

    Unfortunately this is stuck in Customs in Sydney and has been for about a week.

    We've no idea why but we're trying to sort it out.

    Thanks for the opportunity davideo and Amibay

    Just wanted to thank everyone associated with this competition for the opportunity to win this amazing machine - it's quite an upgrade from my stock standard Amiga 500. Can't wait for this to take pride of place in my Computer room.

    Looking at the thread regarding picking a random number the suggestion by Leffmann seems to be the way to go.

    Go to https://random.org/lists/ and click Switch to Advanced Mode, paste in the list of sold tickets, select Use pregenerated randomization from 2019-01-05 or whatever future date you decide on, click Randomize, and the first ticket in the list is the winner.
    So tonight I'll finish double checking all the numbers in the table.

    Create a text list of only the numbers taken and a list with numbers taken and forum names.
    These will all be posted within this thread before midnight (GMT).

    I'll then use the above method with Saturdays date to create the winning number and post it in here.

    Using the above information anybody will be able to verify the results.

    Good luck to all those that entered.

    I've been mostly recovering today from last nights few drinks and spent the rest of the day with family.

    Anyway the competition is now officially closed and the draw for the winner will be held on Saturday.

    I'm at work for the next three days and need to double check all the numbers etc before then.

    I spoke to Tim Prior to Christmas and we have agreed that the competition will close at Midnight (GMT) on the 31st December.

    The draw will take place on the 5th January at an agreed time. (Work commitments on my side will hold up the draw until then as I need to check all the chosen tickets are correctly allocated).

    Any entries after the close of the competition will be refunded and will not be entered into the draw.

    All we have to do now is to find a fair/verifiable method to make the draw. So please post any methods you can think of in the other thread.

    Tim is available for the week beginning 7th January to get the system posted out to the lucky winner.

    So if you want a chance to win the 4000D you had better get buying some tickets.

    Thanks

    Tim has been in touch and has confirmed that the competition for the machine will go ahead as we've raised enough to cover the cost + delivery of the 4000D.

    Any spare money will be donated to AmiBay with a small percentage going to EAB as several of their members have joined in on the competition.

    As previously stated Tim is unavailable due to work commitments until the 23rd December so the draw will be after Christmas.

    So if you want to stand a chance to win this machine you know what to do.
    Any idea how the draw is going to be conducted so no one can cry foul?
