Phew! That was a blur! You thought you were tired? Just imagine what my web servers feel like after yesterday. They’ll basically be doing the post-marathon day walk.
With the 2015 edition of the Annual DCR Giveaway Extravaganza now yesterday’s news, it’s time to get on to the most important part – the winners!
Thanks to everyone who entered in yesterday – it’s much appreciated! Once again you broke the record for the most hits here at the site in a single day – some 400K! Based on past historical trending, I’m convinced the only possible thing that could top that would be a combined Garmin/Strava sex tape.
This evening (post-nap) I went through and removed any accidental (or otherwise) duplicates of comments. I also ensured that any comments that got tangled up in the SPAM filters were carefully put back in place. You were allowed one comment per giveaway, though you could enter as many giveaways as you’d like. Thus everyone is all accounted for (once per giveaway)!
From there it was off to Random.org for the winners. Here’s the full tally of winners and their comments. All times US Eastern (it’s how I keep things straight).
