FREE Analog Devices EZ-Kit for the SHARC ADSP-21262

Started by Al Clark June 11, 2004
You are probably wondering:

What's the catch?

All you have to do is the following:

1. Register & attend the comp.dsp Conference.
2. Be one of the two lucky attendees who win this prize.

But wait there's more....

We also have other door prizes, and everyone who attends the whole 
conference will get a comp.dsp T shirt! 

Maybe, your company will to donate something as well? 

We have presenters for all the days. Most of the presenters are regular 
members of this group. You don't have to be a presenter to come! You just 
have to be interested in DSP. 

Register now!, We have a secure order form on the web site. We won't run 
your credit card until July. Its only $200 and this includes the food!

The sooner we get your reservation, the better we can plan the event. 
This is a volunteer run, not for profit event. Early registration is 
good!

OK, I'll shut up now (for today)

So, let me get this straight, I spend only AU$10,000 or so in air travel, accommodation and registration in order to get about a 1 in 2000 chance to win. That would value the kit at at about 20 million Pacific Pesos (or about 14 million greenbacks). In the words of the immortal Daryl Kerrigan "Tell him he's dreamin'." Cheers, Alf

Alf, Your chances would be better than that. 100 attending would be a lot, I guess, and there are other door prizes, too. A agree that Australia is a long way to come from, but anyone attending just for the Big Prize should probably stay home. The conference was organized in part as a way for regulars at comp.dsp to meet face to face; part conference, part get-together, and (for those who are up to it) part party. Join in if you like. Wish it well, whatever you do. Jerry P.S. Among the comp.dsp faces I've seen, one is from Australia. -- Engineering is the art of making what you want from things you can get. �����������������������������������������������������������������������

Jerry has summed this up nicely. The goal is 50 attendees, with a likely range of 25-100. So your odds are perhaps 1 of 25. Its winter in Australia in July. Think of it as a summer vacation. -- Al Clark Danville Signal Processing, Inc. -------------------------------------------------------------------- comp.dsp conference July 28 - Aug 1, 2004 details at http://www.danvillesignal.com/index.php?id=compdsp email: compdsp@danvillesignal.com Who says you can't teach an old dog a new DSP trick?

You guys could always hold the next one over here summer vacation ? Lots of people here(southern states) go north for winter holiday. Northern Queensland (QLD) or northern Western Australia(WA) on the coast where winter temps don't drop below 25*C during the day(20*C at night is the coldest). The locals complain its cold when it goes below 25*C Or go inland where winter temps are from 10 - 15*C at night through to 30*C during the day Even here in Sydney the winter temps are usually 12 - 18*C with a nice day like today hitting 25*C. Cold is when it goes below 10*C :-) For Australian weather http://www.bom.gov.au/index.shtml Sydney observations http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN65066.shtml Alex

OK, obviously I don't know squat about Australian winters. Last winter, the coldest day at our office was -30 F (-34.4C). It will be warmer in late July. To host a comp.dsp Conference, all you have to do is volunteer and convince enough follow comp.dsp'ers to show up. I've always wanted to visit Australia. -- Al Clark Danville Signal Processing, Inc. -------------------------------------------------------------------- comp.dsp conference July 28 - Aug 1, 2004 details at http://www.danvillesignal.com/index.php?id=compdsp email: compdsp@danvillesignal.com Who says you can't teach an old dog a new DSP trick?

I might just have to have a chat with a few of the lecturers here at uni. See if any are interested. Though I'm only a lowly student , tutor and secretary of the UTS Engineering Society. http://www.secsme.org.au/
