Would you consider purchasing a DVD that contained all the Mach videos, as well as video footage from the 2007 Galesburg convention. The cost would be $20 plus 5$ postage and packaging.

I am strongly considering  to arrange for many parts of the Galesburg conference to be video recorded.
Would you consider purchasing this DVD ?

I would only consider this to be viable if we get more than 50 votes.

One correction is I was thinkiing Australian dollars when I posted this. I guess that translates into 80% of that figure. Roughly $16 US for the DVD and $4 US for postage.

Same for me, getting the video of Galesburg would be good.

I think maybe breaking the Galesburg Convention into a series of individual subject videos and uploading them to a file hosting site where users can pick and choose the videos of their interest to download. It might be simpler than posting DVDs and transfering money all around the world.

The problem is Splint, that someone has to host the videos, someone has to film the videos, etc. I have given a lot of money already to make sure these videos happen. I would be happy to get at least half that money back.
Last year I tried to get some videos captured from the event, and we got nothing. If it takes some bucks to do it, and it costs the viewer a small amount then so be it.

Since this survey I guessed how much it would cost vs how much it would return. I expect to retrieve half the costs but at least get the videos for us who would like to see them.

I am expecting to fit 8 hours of footage on the dvd. Thats pretty good value if you ask me.

EDIT the amount I estimated is actually too little for postage, but I will try and wear that.
Paypal is great for transferring money all around the world.

MAYBE ! ? But first, how about a brief of what can be expected from the Galesburg thing ! Personnally I don't have a clue but might be more interested if there was a good sales pitch and some sort of agenda detail that might at least in part grab my interest. If it grabs me then i'd buy one especially if this is a standard convention with lots of nekid type woman of youth dacin about ! I guess is what i'm sayin is if it has presentations that are of interest then it should be said, so far all I know is "Galesburg" !

We talk about anything they ask for ... Could be how steppers work or how servo's work. We could talk about how to install mach3 or how to wire the machine.

All up to the people that are there :)
