@Simonb, I heard on Monday that whatever was left was packed up and deposited with Bob's widow. I can imagine she was overwhelmed.

David, excellent question, and you've prompted the TI folks to dig into that. It turns out Bob's workspace at National was a big of, um, a hazard shall we say. But we'll work to solve this mystery. Cheers,

One thing I like about Jim Williams is that if anyone tells me my workbench is a mess, I can tell them I'm in good company! It is right that it has become a shrine of sorts. I wonder what happened to Bob Pease's bench? Brian....???

In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments?
