That's an awesome giveaway. How is the winner picked? randomly or by number of posts?

It used to be random, but now a combination of quantity and quality posts will get you there. The emphasis is more on the quality. One quality post won't do it either. If you contribute and give back to the community over time you will (probably) eventualy be rewarded.

You'll find the official answer here. The prizes used to be only for CSP Mag members but it has recently been opened up for EH-Net members too.

Re: July '06 Giveaway - Mile2

I'll just add to Negrita's correct answer:

It's actually by quality of participation. That can be by submitting articles, posting in the forums or moderator a board. But here's an example:

50 posts with quality advice, that help others with problems or offer great study tips on specific topics will beat out 1000 posts that only say things like 'Congrats on passing.' or 'Me too.'

Longevity never hurts either. We've given away prizes to members who don't post a lot but have consistantly contributed over a number of months.

Hope this helps and good luck,
Don

Whoops...

I was corrected by Mile2 on the value of the Giveaway. It's worth $3000 not $2600.

Sorry,

Re: July '06 Giveaway - Mile2

Hi, I won the same prize last year in a conference in israel.
They told me the prize is limited to here and they are trying to create a course over here.. Im still waiting for the prize, nudging them but they don't seem to care.
Think twice before giving a prize through them, Rotem

Re: July '06 Giveaway - Mile2

Point taken. So far, they have been good to us. On the other hand, we do have a link to their training facilities, so you can see where they offer training. If we have a winner, and no class is in their area, I'm sure we can find something for them.

Ask anyone who has won. EH-Net truly wants to support the security community especially if you contribute to this site. If something happens to a sponsor or the sponsor and winner can't get their schedules together, I take it as my personal responsibility to reward that member. I WILL find something for the winner. I can't say what it will be or that it will be the same value, but that's they way I do business.

Looking forward to your participation,

Re: July '06 Giveaway - Mile2

Hey Rotem,

John Bryce College in downtown Tel Aviv has a 40 hour (5 day) course called; Digital Forensics & Electronic Disc Intro & Adv Boot camp.

I was sent by my work to do my ICND course there, and it was very enjoyable and well organized.

I've mentioned to Don before (on another thread) that Mile2 only has study facilities in the USA, Canada, Britain, Ireland and Germany. He replied that the travel expenses are to be incurred by the winner. If you win and cannot use the prize you could always sell it on eBay. I know of one member here that bought a prize from another member here at a reduced rate, passed his exam and is now happily certified.  :) With the money you get from selling it you could pay for your own course at a local vendor

Re: July '06 Giveaway - Mile2

I am the instructor for this class and I have to tell you that they do give these away!!  I teach several classes a month for this awsome company and a good portion of the time I have a seat given away by Mile2 for one of the individuals in the class.  I do know that they will work with indiviuals who have won prizes through them to take these classes.  I have personally seen it.  I don't think that is any issue getting awarded the prize if you won!! 

Good luck and I hope to see you in the class Soon.

Maxwell....
