Did you enter the Excel 2010 Future of Productivity Giveaway, that ended at noon yesterday, Tuesday, June 8th? The giveaway prize was a copy of Microsoft Office 2010, a Flip video camera, and a Seagate 1TB hard drive.
Of course, I used Excel to select the winner, from all the valid comment entries. I typed the comment numbers onto an Excel worksheet, with RAND functions in the adjacent column. Then, I calculated the workbook 3 times, to mix up the RAND results.
Finally, I sorted the RAND column in ascending order, and the comment number at the top was the winner. To satisfy the auditors, here’s a video of the random comment number selection.
And the Winner Is…
As you saw in the video, the random number selected was 22 — the comment by Naomi B. Robbins. Congratulations, Naomi! You win the prize package:
- one (1) copy of Microsoft Office 2010: Home and Business
- a Flip Ultra HD Camcorder
- a Seagate FreeAgent Desk Hard Drive (1 TB)
Thanks for Entering
