Congratulations to the winners! Chaitra, CSN stores will send the $100 gift certificate directly to you. Cookbook winners, please email me your mailing address within 7 days to maillivetoeat(at)gmail.com and I will send you the books.
Here is how the winners were picked.
- Exported all the comments to an excel spread sheet.
- Went through each comment and if the comment was eligible for multiple entries, copied and pasted the rows to make sure that everyone got as many entries as they were eligible for.
- Added a new column to excel and generated sequential numbers for each entries.
- Posted the excel spreadsheet as a table here: http://blog.sigsiv.com/contest-entries
- Final number of entries were 250.
- I used http://www.randomizer.org/form.htm to generate a set of 5 unique random numbers from 1 to 250.
- The first number gets the gift certificate and the remaining 4 get the cookbooks.
Thank you for playing! Oh by the way, did I mention that this is my 401st post? I want to take this opportunity to thank all my readers for all your encouragement, both verbal and silent. I know through the stats that the majority of my readers are the silent kind, which is fine, because you guys provide more than enough support just by visiting. It is more fun to write when you know people are reading. So Thank You!
