    Hey, I did pretty good. The guy that won the grand prize lives less than 30 miles from me. That's the closest I've ever come to winning anything.

    Thanks for your reply, Frank. I'm logged-in, but saw nothing, only the video, even after refreshing the page during the live stream.

    Of course, the other issue is network lag, meaning that the stream was seen by viewers further afield up to several minutes after the events were happening, which means that U/S viewers have a big advantage over the rest of the world, as was seen clearly during the show. But it would have been handy to at least post my callsign when requested.

    For reference, if watching NASA TV, the lag to here is at least 50 seconds, and usually 60 - 90 seconds. (I have a downlink link speed of about 215 Mbit/s with a 9ms ping time to local servers, and around 130 ms to Orlando, FL.)

    No, I was replying to you. Misunderstood your question. It's a little sad that you appear to be so belligerent with other people here who are trying to help you. Maybe the intent of your words is not translating well into the limitations of text? If so, you have my apologies.

    Nonetheless, the date and time of the draw were posted weeks ago. I'm half a world away from you, but still saw that we were told that the url would be available shortly before the draw, and figured out that I would need to refresh the Home page. (Standard procedure for at least the past 15 years for web pages without auto refresh.) I saw a hand, setting up a camera, before the test bars were shown, at around 00:52 here (UTC). The video was viewable a few minutes late, at shortly after 01:05, which includes a couple of minutes of internet lag to here.

    Why do we have a trivia on the 6th that says "You have been entered into the sweepstakes to win one of these Great Prices!"? Is there more to come or just more errors?
