Track down Dave & Win!
« on: September 12, 2011, 07:26:53 am »
A quick "contest", only for those going to the Electronex show in Sydney this Wednesday.

The first person to track me down at the show and shout out "Great Scott!" wins a free IDEAL True RMS Multimeter (slightly "reviewed").

Dave.

Unfortunately, I won't be there, but... I'm curious: why "Great Scott"?  :)

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess "Doc Brown" ;)

Soft shoes are for pussies. Go the Segway!
Was it really supposed to do that?

All those looking for the convention in Sydney were well and truly fooled. No meter prize for them.  ;)

The irony is that the inventor of the segway was killed when his runaway segway ran into a river.

Not quite -- it was a British chap called Jimi Heselden who bought the company in 2010, not the inventor.  He rode it off a cliff into a river; the coroner's inquest heard that he was riding along a footpath through a park (Segways aren't legal for use on the public highway in the UK) when he encountered a dog-walker coming the other way.  He backed up to let the pedestrian pass and went over the edge...

Yep, I wasn't even in the door before someone shouted it out!
You'll see the winner in the video.
