  1. Welcome to the forum Ed. Sales are never announced in advance. Just keep checking the forum every day. There will probably be another sale before the end of the year..........Doug
  2. I’d recommend FreeMesh Get it at ninetwopro.com . As good as any for NA and it’s free..........Doug
  3. 1. GRANT OF LICENSE. This EULA grants you the following rights: a. You may install, access, and run a SINGLE copy of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT on a SINGLE personal computer for your personal, non-commercial, non-profit use... For more information regarding the EULA see https://orbxdirect.com/eula
  4. This benchmark may be of interest to you: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-9600K+%40+3.70GHz&id=3337 .
  5. I think you'll be fine as long as you keep the graphics and details settings at a reasonable level, i.e., don't move all the sliders full-right............Doug
  6. Or better yet, try the Cayman Islands. If you've ever walked through the yacht harbor in Monaco you'll know what I mean...............Doug
  7. I like to think of myself as a JFK lawyer.......................
  8. Actually John that's correct only if the prize provider doesn't follow the applicable IRS regulations. The prize provider is required, by law, to notify the IRS. See post #47 above.....peace.....Doug
  9. Indeed, I read it wrongly. A purchase is still required. It's the "chance" that's been eliminated, not the "consideration".........my bad...........Doug
  10. Growing up isn't the issue Terry. The issue is that this drawing could well be considered an illegal lottery under Federal Law in the USA and, if so, it shouldn't be offered to residents here. "A lottery includes three things: (1) chance, (2) prize, (3) and consideration. To successfully run a contest or sweepstakes and not an illegal lottery, you must eliminate one of these factors." This "contest" has all three................Doug
  11. That's correct Nick. ORBX has to file the 1099-Misc not the recipient. The recipient is "only" responsible for the taxes due . Maybe ORBX should consider a "gross up" to cover the tax liability.........Doug File Form 1099-MISC for each person to whom you have paid during the year: at least $10 in royalties or broker payments in lieu of dividends or tax-exempt interest; at least $600 in: rents; services performed by someone who is not your employee; prizes and awards; other income payments; medical and health care payments; crop insurance proceeds; cash payments for fish (or other aquatic life) you purchase from anyone engaged in the trade or business of catching fish; generally, the cash paid from a notional principal contract to an individual, partnership, or estate; payments to an attorney; or any fishing boat proceeds, In addition, use this form to report that you made direct sales of at least $5,000 of consumer products to a buyer for resale anywhere other than a permanent retail establishment.
  12. I'm not a lawyer either but I asked a couple of friends who are to comment. They are both of the opinion that, under Federal law in the USA, this would be considered an illegal lottery as consideration is required (a product purchase). That why virtually every drawing here clearly states that no purchase is necessary. In addition, the are numerous laws in each of the 50 States which also regulate sweepstakes and lottery drawings. The Federal IRS will, indeed, consider at least the the main first prize taxable income due to the value. And, the tax laws in each of the 50 States will also come into play. Just two lawyers opinions and, of course, all mileage is variable...........Doug
  13. She obviously has no appreciation for fine music nor for your talents as a performer.........................
