I never even heard about Destination Moon -- it sounds like I would have loved to have seen it when I was a kid...

How about "Science Fiction Theatre" With Truman Bradley? The introduction "Let me show you something interesting" always seemed to lead to an example of scientific fact that was presented in a most hokey manner, like pointing a parabolic reflector emitting "high frequency sound waves" that actually sounded like a middle C note with tremolo, at a drinking glass on the other side of the room and causing it to explode. Some of the actual stories were pretty interesting, though. Does anyone remember Mr. Wizard with Don Herbert? I'd love to see some of those episodes again. -Rick

Speaking, again, of prospective possibilities for a new tv-series or movie... ... I do seriously wish someone would do something with that thoroughly wonderful '60's spyence-fiction spoof game from Monolith Games..."No One Lives Forever". I actually became quite fond of super-spy Cate Archer, and her whole cast of looney co-stars, during the course of NOLF and NOLF2.

The main selling point of "Greatest American Hero" was... I suppose... it's gently humorous spoof of the whole comic-book superhero genre. Aside from that, I can't say that I can clearly recall the details of even a single episode... except, now, for a "phone-booth" joke from one episode. And I also can now vaguely remember being disappointed by it's cancellation. But I only remembered it, at all, because of a search to see if the old "I Spy" series might have qualified as "spyence-fiction" ( it definitely didn't ). The late actor Robert Culp had a co-starring role in "Greatest American Hero" as FBI agent "Bill Maxwell". Oh, well... it was... after all... a long time ago. The console? Slow progress, as usual. Though, lately, because I've been focusing more on tooling-up for it... and for other efforts. A bench-top mini-mill that I acquired a few months back is already helping. And I expect that the lovely new Lathemaster 8x16 bench-top mini-lathe ( "mini" meaning it only weighs 180 pounds! ), that came a few days ago, will provide a considerable boost to the project. ... but then, only time will tell.

I saw that one too. A lot of TV and movies programs in the 60s were from Europe or had a European story lines. The image in front of the fountain in Geneva is very memorable for me.

I liked the invaders but it's so inconvenient that they always dissappear when they die leaving you with no evidence of their existance. It was brought back in reruns for a short while when the SciFi channel started but it din't last long there either.

I have watched almost every program listed so far. Space 1999 at least had 2 of the lead actors from Mission Impossible. That's about all I remember from the show.

"Apply a lot of current from the recorder to a conductive recording tape once it's finished" That would do it :-)

Apply a lot of current from the recorder to a conductive recording tape once it's finished. As always, disavow any knowledge of your lost coworkers in the usual manner.

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.
