Is it just electronic?

It's not just electronic/electrical...it's MUCH more!~  BWAH HAHAHA!!!

I'm thinking of submitting my greatest resurrection - a 1940 Chevy coupe that was less than a basket case when I got it.  I did a frame off (and partial frame replacement) rebuild.  It's now a much faster, much better handling, better looking, MUCH lower, better sounding car with digital instrumentation and multi-amp, 10 speaker stereo.  And I did most of it myself.

@David: How about if I promise to come and collect the scope in the US if I win...

Why not give my home address, and then I'll look after it for you until you come over to pick it up (LOL)

@David: What have you got against us Aussies and other infidels?

 

Oooh -- it's not fair to present such a tempting target -- now I'm having to physically restrain myself and drag myself away from the keyboard (LOL)

@Kinnar  Caleb is correct, we're not looking for an encyclopiedic description of a repair job, the main gist will do. And the 1,000 word limit is really intended for those of us who, uhm, tend to write a little more verbosely than our more taciturn counterparts.

Yeah, it sounds difficult but it isn't necessarily. Just try to remember the story of how it all happened. If you've still got the device you could take a few pictures. It doesn't have to be in-depth documentation

This is really very different out of box idea of a technical event. But the document being asked for participation is quite difficult to get as they will not be having idea about participation at the time of fixing the thing.

But still if you want to win a good quality and brand scope one will have to recreate the fixing environment!!

@Caleb, Karen

Yeah right, I can be a bit naughty and sneak an entry through.  But the minute I mention Zimbabwe, everyone will know it's from "That @#$%^& Zimbabwean guy" (Thanks again, Frank!)

Here in Australia we have a competition for "The best job in the world" - actually 6 of them.  Open to ANYONE from ANYWHERE.  You win a well paid job for a year:

http://www.australia.com/best-jobs.aspx

So what's so difficult for you guys?  As I said, I'd have no problem nominating a US address for prize delivery.   You have an international readership, you know!

The Martian: A Delightful Exploration of Math, Mars & Feces

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
