It turns out generating a random selection from my email subscribers was more involved than I thought. Initially I was going to use my normal method of exporting as a text file, importing into a database and using SQL. But then I thought I would use Excel, that has to be quicker and easier, right?
Well not the way I tried. Trust me to over-geek these things.
Then I found a nice formula on the intertubes, and that worked very well, once I had removed the obvious fake or disposable email addresses from my list.
So winners have been notified and I am just waiting for them to identify themselves.
