So, we have ourselves a winner for the GET ME TO THE HAMMERS! giveaway of one $500 Visa gift card. Being engineers, we’re sticklers on fairness and transparency so, before we announce who won, we wanted to share how we came up with the winner.

1st – We sorted blog comments chronologically and assigned a number to each comment in that order.

2nd – We removed any duplicate entries (some people commented on other’s comments which is more than cool) and reduced them to 1 so as to count just the first comment. Also, if any existed, auto generated spam comments were also removed.

3rd – We removed any comments after the January 31st midnight deadline (sorry but we have to be fair).

4th – Now with 383 entries, we used Random.org to pick a winner (as per the rules, the winner was verified as having Liked our Facebook fan page as well).

And lucky number 305 is Charles A. Leask! Congratulations Charles for winning the $500 Visa Gift Card. Be sure to look out for a private message on Facebook from us or, if you have messaging turned off, be sure to send us a message HERE to claim your prize. Thanks to everyone who was part of this giveaway. We’re extremely excited by the number of entires and overall support. Hopefully we can do this again!
