    Are there going to be multiple threads or just one? [I'm totally not going to try and take all the things if it's one thread...]

    We'll post the first big batch as a single thread soon (when we know just who wants to swap for the T-shirt) and wait for claimants. One claim per user, so no "I'll have all of them" or "Numbers 1 through 7 please". We would like the unwanted prizes to be shared out a bit so once someone has claimed one that will be it for them.

    I'll clarify in the new thread when I post so everyone knows how it's going to work.

    Cheers,

    Al

    OOP - video has finished processing on YouTube - winner draw coming up!

    Hey folks1

    Here is today's winner draw video for STOCKTOBER2! and we peform a very important technology experiment too:



    Congratulations winner. Let us know which number you'd like and we'll reveal your prize later.

    Remember entries are still open, so if you get in now you'll be in the draw from tomorrow onwards until your name is drawn (but will be put back before the star prize PS4 draw). To enter just PM me your professional contact details if you are a UK based IT manager/tech type, OR if you've entered a VeryPC competition on EduGeek before, you can just speak up in the thread that you want back in and we'll add you.


    Thanks everyone!

    Al

    Indeed it is (or was - I've corrected it now).

    I save myself time by copypasting in the text from the previous day's vid but clearly today I rushed it a bit and forgot to amend the date. All fixed now.

    Anthony, the build tech who joins me in today's vid, clearly knows a thing or two about copypasting too (you'll have to watch the vid to find out what that means).

    Thanks for the heads up @bladedanny

    I think hallb15 should get a Boobie prize for that joke.
