Congratulations to the winners of the Linkapoloza contest:

2nd Prize (\$50) - Darleen
3rd Prize (\$25) - Cadillac Tight

Extra special thanks to everyone who participated! You're all winners in my book, and (if you're not already there) I'm going to make sure you're all on the Wizbang blogrolls - a task I all too rarely engage in... If you didn't win this time, fret not, I'll be back with more contests in the future that you'll all be eligible for.

If you want to see the detail of the drawing read on...

The drawing was conducted in the following manner. The trackbacks and comments were numbered sequentially, with the second Musing Minds trackback, the comment by Aakash, and the comment by Woodman removed from the numbering. That left the ordered entries as:

1. Musing Minds

3. Jay

4. Kerfuffles

5. lawhawk

7. Brandon

8. diane

9. Jim

10. Falze

11. Steve

12. Darleen

13. Beth Donovan
There were three random number drawings, the first for the top prize, the second for the second prize, and the third for third prize.

Microsoft Excel was the tool of choice for the drawing, as their is a function in the Analysis ToolPak add-in (RANDBETWEEN) which allows for easy random number generation between two integers. You can look up the usage in the Excel help file. After the first drawing the winning entry was removed from the list, sites were renumbered (removing the winner) and the next drawing was held...

Drawing numbers for first, second, and third prizes were 6,11, and 2 (respectively), which looks like this:
