Crazy give-away contest

Postby Digit » Sun Apr 12, 2015 9:16 pm

Time for something crazy ... :lol:

This evening I looked at the desk on my right side where all the soldering, experimenting, testing etc. normally takes place and thought: "I'm very good at making a mess in just a few hours..." so I took a picture of it. And on another desk which is not in the picture I have a variety of Home Automation related hardware and I don't know what to do with it ... selling could be an option or just give it away and make someone happy.

And now comes the crazy part... for some odd reason I came up with the idea to give away an item from that desk full of unused HA related hardware to the person that can tell what all those items in the picture posted below are! So send me a list of everything you can recognize in the picture and get a chance to win an item from that desk with HA hardware I don't use... simple as that!

Rules of this game/contest:
- It's a one-time shot, so only your 1st list of items you recognize/give a name will count;
- Red and orange colored jumper wires count as a single item ("jumper wires"), but being able to specify the model of both multi-meters will count as 2. Mentioning all the resistor values shown in the picture won't help either - count will be 1 ("resistors").

So it's actually a contest to see who can recognize the largest amount of things - are you up to it ??? :wink:

Just send me the list if items you recognize; either by PM or to crazycontest at [domain in my signature] and I'll post a daily update on this topic until I don't get new contributions for a week... cause that's when the contest is over. In the topic updates I will only list the number of items which could be named, not what of course.

So who's going to be the winner ??? :D
This picture hasn't been "orchestrated" in any way, it's random - it's just what was there this evening, next week it'll look completely different 8)

OK then, one hint: it might help if you've read my blog from time to time - I can't help if you didn't :lol:
