Entered a fantastic competition...
« on: March 20, 2017, 10:06:42 PM »
Wonder what I will win. Anyone know what year and month I entered and what the prize was? Hint: the prize package included 4 things, which included 2 Statronics modular power supplies (complete with mains cord and plug) valued at $77.62.

She looks a little nervous.  What with those guys staring intently.

I don't think she was the prize... :-DD

Maybe she was already the prize, She is wearing a Pearl Necklace. *ducks*

But seriously, that magazine looks extremely old. Why'd it take so long to posty this? Can you only type one word per year?

Congrats on your win, however.  ;)

Ok, I'll bite, I am not from Australia, and I am not familiar with that mag, but, from the haircuts and computer, 1986?

Oh you scamp. What a tease. An E&M Electronics video data terminal. Complete with 12 inch solid state TV receiver.  >:D
My first response before checking was going to be a DSE System-80 (TRS-80 clone) but this preceded even the TRS80.
And those ties are straight out of the seventies. Those guys could be asking her if she wants to go see the first Star Wars film at the cinema.

I wonder if this was the first ever competition where you had to develop software to enter.

At the time this would have been quite a decent prize.

Well done. The contest was in the July 1977 issue.
