    My first post on the techpowerup forums , and what a good way to start with a ticket purchase for a Fundraiser.

    Would just like to say what a nice thought from the techpowerup team to try and help someone less fortunate than our selves ...

    Nice 1 peeps :)

    Updated. Since we have reached the original $1200 goal, as promised I will announce the prize winners within the next hour. Still shooting for $1337, mind you.

    That's not how we are doing it.

    http://www.randomizer.org/form.htm

    Assign people numbers per ticket, randomize, then pick numbers. (Or something like that, poge will explain)
