    OK geeks, the raffle / draw was done (and captured in video) in a geeky way, using a PowerShell script which first counted down from 30 seconds, then selected a random number between 1 and 49 (both numbers included).

    The script used for draw:

    Code:
    Function Start-Countdown 
    {   
        Param(
            [Int32]$Seconds = 30,
            [string]$Message = ""
        )
        ForEach ($Count in (1..$Seconds))
        {   Write-Progress -Id 1 -Activity $Message -Status "$($Seconds - $Count) seconds to go" -PercentComplete (($Count / $Seconds) * 100)
            Start-Sleep -Seconds 1
        }
        Write-Progress -Id 1 -Activity $Message -Status "Completed" -PercentComplete 100 -Completed
    }
    
    Start-Countdown -Seconds 30 -Message "Shuffling the deck, announcing the winner in a few seconds..."
    $Winner = Get-Random -Minimum 1 -Maximum 49
    Write-Host ""
    Write-Host "The winner of Macrium Home license is ticket number"$Winner
    Write-Host ""

    The script was run two times to pick two winning ticket numbers as seen in this screenshot:

    Comparing those two ticket numbers to list of eligible participants (see end of first post), we can now announce the winners:



    Congratulations both! Please PM me your first and last name and email address.

    Raw unedited extract from TF Saturday Live Chat, the Macrium Reflect Home raffle a few hours ago:

    PLEASE NOTICE:

    I am still waiting one of our two winners to PM me name and email address needed for you winners to get your licenses. They will be available to you through Macrium Online Shop as pre-filled shopping basket containing a Home Edition license with a 100% discount applied. For this the real name and email address are needed.

    Both winners have been informed through this thread and a visitor message from me. Both winners have been online several times after these notifications and have most certainly seen the notifications, yet one of the winners has not contacted me.

    As the "head judge" for this raffle I have decided to wait until 18:00 (6 PM) UTC on Thursday 8th of September (7 PM BST, 12 PM EDT, 9 AM PDT). If I have not heard from the missing winner until that moment, a new winner for the second license will be drawn in live broadcast 15 minutes later at 18:15 (6:15 PM) UTC, link to that possible re-draw will be posted here in this thread.
