Yes, but would certainly be beneficial for those of us tired of seeing and hearing about the Kardashians....

And let's not forget that I wouldn't be able to watch "Storage Wars" on TV :-(

The problem with shorting things down is that things get dropped off. It's the EOTW AS WE KNOW IT. It doesn't have to mean the world is about to end. There could be a world wide EPS pulse which wipes out all electronics. I can imagine that causing a lot of death and chaos.

You're going to wear both pairs? Things must be looking bad :-)

Good Grief! ... anyone have a copy of the "Octavo" on hand? As if Harold "Rapture-Boy" Camping wasn't bad enough... now it seems that Japanese Princess Kaoru Nakamaru is also getting into the act (... a "fifth-dimensional" one, at that. Buckaroo Banzai, anyone? ). But what can one expect... from a year which, already, will likely play out the most ridiculous Presidential Campaign on record?

These sound ideal for the French-Canadian wedding tradition of the "Ugly Sock Dance" (google it). And it's strange, I happen to have two pairs of brown/black socks, don't know where they came from. Will have to save them for 21Dec.

Actually there is also a fashion of socks with bands of many (and sometimes clashing) colours. They seem to be more available in England than in the states (although I found a great pair in Savanna Ga) and one fashion brand charges about 18 pounds ($30) for a pair! They are available at all high end fashion shops including Harrods and all over Heathrow. I am told that is is quite humourous to see the barristers in London dressed formally in wig, coat, tie, vest (waistcoat) etc. and when they sit down there is this flash of colour.

You should do that more often then Max. Think of the joy you'd get every morning when you find that people are actually still reading your stuff? (Not to mention the lightening of the load on your email inbox....)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
