idea Erodov Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! Prizes worth ₹ 26,000/-





We promised something special on 11/11/11, so here we are! A uniqu[e] Old is Gold Gadget contest! (thanks to Vijay for the idea!) The rules are simple. The person with the oldest verifiable electronic gadget in possession matched with a awesome write-up describing 'Why you still own and love it?' will get:

1 x AMD Phenom II 1090T CPU + 1 x ASUS Crosshair IV Formula motherboard

The contest is open to everyone, Indians and people from foreign countries alike

So to win:
  • Like Erodov's Facebook Fan Page and the Contest Page:

    Erodov Facebook Page (Erodov | Facebook)

    Contest Page
  • Share this contest page on your Facebook wall: Simply copy paste the following line and post on your wall:

    I am competing in the [E] Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! CPU and Motherboard worth ₹ 26,000/- http://www.erodov.com/forums/erodov-old-gold-contest-11-11-11-special-prizes-worth-26-000-a/47101.html

    Make sure you tag Erodov in your post! (use @Erodov)
  • Post in this thread (if you have not registered on Erodov yet, you can do so now): A photo of the oldest gadget you own (it is mandatory for you to take a photo of the gadget now with your Erodov username and 11/11/11 written clearly on a piece of paper. Erodov.com must also be clearly mentioned in the photo.)
  • Post along side the photo: Why you still own and love the gadget? The writeup can be as small or as large as you want. This will be the decider/tier breaker for the contest.
  • A video submission (uploaded to YouTube or Facebook) combining the above TWO is even more welcome. Instead of writing about the gadget, speak to your audience (as they might end up deciding who eventually wins.) Of course you need to mention Erodov.com in the video

I would say posting a video would increase your chances of winning by at least a factor of 3x Also, the gadget may be in a non working condition as well (as long as you can justify in your write up/video why you still own and love it )

Winners are governed by the following fine print, of course:
  • The contest is open for to all members from 11th Nov 2011 to 11th Dec 2011. If you are not already an registered member, you must first register as a member on Erodov.com. Registration is free and can be done here.
  • You can submit multiple entries in the contest.
  • You must follow all the steps outlined above (including liking the contest page and posting about this on your Facebook Wall page.) Inviting your friends to the contest gets your extra brownie points with the judges!
  • Decisions of the contest judges are final. The final winner may be picked using a open public vote! Democracy! Hallelujah!
  • The prizes are not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded.
  • The prizes will be shipped to people residing in India only. Winners from other countries will have to bear any additional shipping and tax costs.
  • The CPU and the motherboard have both been bench marked under extreme cooling for a overclocking event. However, both of them are still under warranty and are fully functional. The products will be shipped as is and no returns/refunds will be accepted.
  • Everyone (inside and outside India) is free to participate in this contest. Erodov Staff members (and their relatives) are not eligible to win in this contest.
  • Facebook is not associated with this contest in any way.

I will upload pics soon. If the contest would have been for "member on most low-resource computer"..........I am almost the sure winner.Though I have enough money for an i7 or equivalent but I still on this because I LOVE THIS PC. It's like MY SON.

Posting pics of an Intel Pentium II. Bought the computer in 1992. This Particular processor is in non working condition. I have got another one which working (YES!! its working!!!) with windows 95. I keep this as a show piece on my desk. It brings back memories of my child hood days when i used to play "operation desert storm" (helicopter flying game, Any one remember that one?) and prince of Persia. It also reminds me about how much progress we have made over a few last decades in terms of number of transistors cramped into limited amount of space all the while increasing the processing power. Hats of Engineers - they have opened up a totally new world for us.

Posting Pictures of one of many Quarter inch cartirdges (QIC) that i have. These were bought in the Late 1980s. I have a few who still have data on them and are readable. This one is a blank one, just opened from the package to take a photograph. The rated DATA capacity of this cartridge in 60 MB. These were used to back up Enterprise Data at that time. Required 2-3 such cartridges to back up a month's data back then. Considering the size of the cartridge and price at that time (it was costing 350 Rs/cartridge), and considering the size and price of removable storage media today, all i can say is WOW about the progress we have made in terms of DATA storage. Even a Antivirus setup now a days is more than 60 MB!.

However there is a plus point to these cartridges. They are sturdy, and by sturdy i mean you can even stand on them, get down, pop it in the drive and still you data will be available. the Plastics that are used of very high quality and the back plane which is not visible is aluminium. the tape mechanism is also very smooth and reliable. some of the DATA on these tapes is more than 25 years old and every thing is still readable. Considering the care (read: lack of attention) they have been subjected to, this is just amazing!! I doubt if todays DVDs/Blurays can withstand 25 years of service and still be battle worthy after such negligence!
