Winners of the October 1998 hplx.net Contest

That's right, these are the winners we picked.  The October contest was really a drawing; entrants filled out a survey involving the palmtop and the demand for a backlight. (Not to mention the highly caustic survey item, "Religion: not disclosed ". :) We received over 200 entries, with the majority of them voting that yes, a backlight would be a good thing for the 200LX.  The most popular price range was from $1-$50, which may be a tad optimistic, but we'll have to see... Watch for the statistics from the survey to be posted as soon as I get them added up.

Entries were selected using a random number generator on an HP48GX calculator, and the generated numbers matched up to message numbers in the order messages were received.

FIRST PLACE: Bob Clark <orca86@ix.netcom.com>

SECOND PLACE: David Cripps <d-cripps@dircon.co.uk>

THIRD PLACE: Mike Mac Donald <mikemacd@erols.com>

FOURTH PLACE: Klaus Dribbusch <kdribbusch@yahoo.de>

FIFTH PLACE: Steve Lawson <stevel@sdl.continet.com>

Thanks to everyone who entered, and keep watch for new contests!
