There are only twelve hours left to win a Black Panther edition TF5800PVR, and be one of the first in the UK to own one of these - they won't be available until the 1st of August.

To find out how to enter the competition to win one, click on the link below:

Competition closes noon on July 5th.

Nigel.

Only 20 minutes to go.

The tension is rising.

And the competition is now closed. I will do the draw later this afternoon.

No idea yet; I can tell you that 5.81% of entries got the wrong answer though!

Hi Nigel,

just out of interest, can you let us know how many entries you got?

Cheers

The winner, by a very scientific process of asking a friend who's half asleep and doesn't have clue what I'm on about, will be the 94th correct entry...

Now I just work out who that is...

There were, incidentally, 146 correct entries.

Nigel.

Well, the lucky winner hasn't received their notification text message yet; I do hope they turn their phone on in the next 69 hours, or I have to wade through that wretched spreadsheet again!

Nigel.

My phone's not been off either, still waiting and I need four tuners, two upstairs and two down.

I guess that makes it the two up two down of the 21st century Laughing

Well, I've not heard anything yet, but I'm up in Edinburgh now, with a flat mobile phone battery, wondering about the wisdom of flying back to London this afternoon!

Nigel.

PS. No, after an hour watching News24; I'm definitely not going to get on a small aircraft and fly back to City Airport.

Anyone know a good car hire place in Edinburgh?

I presume (and this may be a stupid question) that suppose you are working abroad and only switch the mobile on infrequently would the competition reply still reach you?
ok, i'm clutching at straws here Smile

Good question; but it does say on the competition page that it we can't contact people within 72 hours, we reserve the right to pick another winner.

In view of the chaos in London, and my own absence from home, I may have to extend that a bit anyway - when I was trying to call home, I couldn't even get a line some of the time, and that will certainly have affected anyone who tried to call the freephone number to contact me.

I'll keep people posted.

Nigel.
