The entries for the free software contest were a bit disappointing. Only 14 entries. I guess you all have MSDN accounts!


Out of those entries, only one added a backlink to the site. His username is Akbar. By default, he gets first choice at what he wants. The challenge is that he lives in India, so I'm working with him to see if there is a way to get it to him. If that doesn't work out, I'll choose someone else randomly.

Choosing the second winner was a little harder. I had to come up with a way to generate a random number between 1 and 14 (the number of entries). to the rescue. I used their site to generate a table of random numbers. To make it even more random, I decided to use the 8th value in the first column of values (100 numbers were generated). I figured if the previous winner or a trackback was chosen, I would generate another set.

So the winner with second choice for the software is....

Entry #5, which is "Federiko.

Congratulations to both of you!
