There were 276 posts in the thread on BAUT. Wow! So I generated a random number between 2 (my post was #1) and 277. The number was...

99. So the winner is...

[drum roll please...]

Congrats! I have posted in the BAUT thread and sent a PM as well.

Wailashi, please send me your name and address so I can ship to you your fine copy of this cool astronomy book. You can send me a private message through BAUT (click on my username in the thread and send a PM) or you can email me at thebadastronomer "at" gmail "dot" com.

Let me add: if I don't hear back from Wailashi by one week after the contest ended (Thursday, February 15 at noon Pacific time) I will pick another number and get a different winner. Hopefully this will be enough time for him/her to respond.

I'll note that Wailashi is a new member of BAUT. It pays to sign up. :-)

For everyone else, hang in there. This is but the first BA giveaway. I have more stuff, and I will have a new contest soon!

Note: if you click the link to the random number generator, you will probably get a different number than 99. I included the link simply to show you how I got the number. The odds are only 1 in 276 you'll get 99 like I did.
