I just joined in 2017, but I got acorns in the original offer. I don't want to be a hog!

I agree @dave?

No, I actually have software that I have written that randomly generates the winners. For the purposes of transparency, I actually posted the code for it some time ago. I can't remember where but it was in a thread attached to one of the previous raffles.

I'm glad to hear it! I can't imagine how much time would go into doing it otherwise.
