STD prepares Digiflash for Christmas stockings

By Chris Williams. Published: 5th Nov 2003, 16:00:28 | Permalink | Printable

Yet another special offer

Stuart Tyrrell Developments, aka AdvantageSix, are currently running a few special offers on their DigiFlash and Simtec USB kit. In preparation for the imminent festive season, punters are invited pick up a cheaper than usual USB and DigiFlash bundle, provided it's purchased before the 24th December this year.

DigiFlash2 was launched earlier this year after STD and Surftec teamed up to produce a driver and support for a USB based memory card reader.

You'll have noticed that it's been a slow news week and seeing as we can't get much of more a story out of this article, we'll have to in a haphazardly manner report on the shocking, sensational allegations that the pre-Christmas stress has frankly hit Stuart Tyrrell from AdvantageSix hard.

"I knew it was a mistake to give Stuart the keys to the Office party drinks cabinet", Ad6's Matt Edgar dramatically revealed in the DigiFlash announcement this week. "He seems to have gone completely mad on these Simtec USB card offers! Perhaps it's the euphoria about the NET100 sales."

Save a sherry for us, it's cold outside.

We're prepping the office Halon system for when we finally light the Xmas Pudding - that thing has been stewing in sherry and rum for almost a year now!

Ah, the wonders of Xmas at the office will never cease (just like STD USB specials!)

I was hoping there would be a special offer on the card readers alone, for those of us who had already bought a Simtect USB card from Stuart Tyrrell - the early adopters.

Oh well.

We didn't want to /promote/ prices of card readers alone, as we can't afford to provide them to non-USB customers and as they might undercut existing offerings from elsewhere. However that doesn't mean that we don't have attractive pricing ready for existing customers.

Dave - Call us. You won't be disappointed.
