LugRadio Live USA 2008, the 'rock-conference' from the team behind the

for your friends too?

Easy. Simply encourage people to come to LugRadio Live USA 2008 and
ask them to pre-register at http://lugradio.org/live/USA2008/register
- when they do this, they will be asked for the person who referred
them. In this box they should type in *your name*. Now repeat with
lots of people. If you get the highest number of referrals (as in, the
most amount of people that said you referred them) you will win your
choice of an Asus EEEPC or Neuros OSD, as well as two O'Reilly books,
and a limited edition LugRadio t-shirt. Also, each of the people you
referred will get an O'Reilly book and a limited edition LugRadio
t-shirt too - so everyone is a winner! We will also have a runner-up
winner who will win the Asus EEEPC or Neuros OSD that is left - lots
of opportunity to win!

So...get people along to http://lugradio.org/live/USA2008/register and
tell them to tell us that you sent them!

Note: only people that have pre-registered a ticket and actually show
up to the event will be counted as referrals - no trying to stooge the
system, folks. :)
