All winners are now being notified by email to their forum submitted email address.  If you haven't received an email but think you might be in the list above, check spam filters, and then mail [email protected] and let us know you never got any mail.  It can take a few days for companies to send you your serial number; if a few days pass and you haven't received it - send a reminder to the company email as noted in your winning notification email, or to us by replying to the email you received or to us directly.

Curious about how we award prizes?  See http://www.donationcoder.com/Forums/bb/index.php?topic=1684.0 for a discussion about our custom prize optimizer utility. Winning something one month reduces your chances of winning the next month, and being helpful on the forum slightly increases your chances.


I have just sent out the result emails to everyone who entered, and to the companies who donated software for us to give away.

Here's are some statistics from the giveaway:

* 325 people entered.
* 127 pieces of software (prizes) were given out.
* My optimizer program ran for 5+ hours in its search for the best assignment of prizes to maximize happiness (see this thread for more about the prize optimizer).
* Supporting members of the site were given a weight of 1 and non-supporters a weight of 0.25.  Prize assignments were otherwise randomly assigned to maximize happiness as described above.
A huge thanks is due to DC members wraith808 and Cranioscopical for lining up all of these giveaways and discounts.

And speaking of discounts, there are big discounts available on almost all of the programs in the giveaway, throughout the month of April.  You can get the discount codes and links here: http://www.donationcoder.com/fundraiser/discounts


Note also that we may have a second (much smaller) giveaway at the end of the month, so stay tuned...

I wonder who got stuck with the lowest happiness score... :)
