@kfield: I'm assuming that Hawaiian shirts aren't all the rage in the UK??

You woudl assume correctly, but I have no idea why thsi should be. On the other hand I don't know many people who wear them in Alabama either -- I dare to be different! LOL

@DocDivakar: I never quit wearing narrow neck ties...

When I first came to the USA in 1990, suits were still the order of the day. We had "Casual Friday" which still involved shoes, slacks, and "business casual" shirts.

Now I'm happy to say that I no longer own a suit ... or a tie (apart from a black one for funerals -- sad face) ... I only ever wear shorts (jeans in the winder) and Hawiian shirts. Life is good :-)

@DocDivakar: In the mean time take a look at the LEDs used by Death Cab for Cuties: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkk5wViJo-I

Wow -- that's a great video.

Re your narrow ties. I remember when corduroy was popular -- then it went out of style -- I think it came back into stylw again about 12 years ago (at lesst for a time -- I hav no odea if it's "in" or "out" now) ... the point is that one of my friends was still wearing the same corduroy trousers he's been wearing back in the '70s/'80s -- he said he had just been waiting for folks to catch up with him.

@Max: for that matter, I never quit wearing narrow neck ties which got some unsolicited comments saying it was too retro about 10 years ago (I hated wearing the ones as wide as my chest that is popular in the US!). And now the narrow neck ties are back and in fashion. History has a way of repeating itself in the fashion world!

I will wait for organic LED's in my shirt fabric... in the mean time take a look at the LEDs used by Death Cab for Cuties:

@MicroMan: Disco? Wasn't that c.1980, John TraVOLTa, et al?

I remember those days, standing at the edge of the crowd vaguely hopping up and down from one foot to the other (but only after having sufficient beer to make me look really cool! :-)

Disco? Wasn't that c.1980, John TraVOLTa, et al?  Aren't (some of) the Bee Gee's dead? A disco full of engineers.  Probably all doing the "robot".  That'll bring out the women!  The engrs can carefully explain their (ckt) design challenges and tradeoffs to the captivated suitors.  Burn, baby, burn!  And fashion?  OMG.  Long live our reputation.

@susan: Maybe it will be popular a hundred years from now when the components look truly retro.

Actually, that's not a bad point -- there's some stuff I had no time for 40 years ago that I think is very tasty-looking now, so who knows what will be "cool" in 40 years time?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
