@grover1: I entered one back in 2010, won it, http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=30&doc_id=1284683 got an email from a nice young lady asking where the $500  prize cheque should be sent to...

Are you sure this is the right link -- it doesn;t take me to a competition -- can you check it out and then email me directly at max.maxfield@ubm.com

> "Why not give my home address, and then I'll look after it for you.."

You'd love that, wouldn't you?  At least you have failth that I will win :-)

> @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)

It's not like you to be such a shrinking violet, Max......

@Grover - I remember your story and I also entered that comp.   I have been paid for a couple of things I've done for EELife and had no problems with any of them, though they did take time......so chase it up some more (ask Karen, she's the boss!)

hey dude don't worry about it - EE have a bad record on Halloween competition pay outs. I entered one back in 2010, won it, http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=30&doc_id=1284683 got an email from a nice young lady asking where the $500  prize cheque should be sent to, I replied, then guess what - nothing arrived! I tried emailing back but never had any replies - so in the end I just gave up demanding my filthy lucre. *sigh* Maybe Max le Magnifico can help me out ?

Ah ja. This contest is open to a mere 2.2 % of mankind.

So, I'll preserve my stories for a "Europe-only" contest :)
