@kfield: Ah Max, I failed to remember that tie dye will NEVER go out of fashion for you. As for very wide bell bottoms, I hope you've tossed those!

Toss them? Never! I'm just waiting for them to come back into style (as is the case with most of my clothes :-)

@kfield  No, I was more the grungy bluejeans type.  But you reminded me of a story.  Was in the college ham radio shack with my girlfriend and texting with someone in the USA.  (Back then we called it "teletype").  He asked if the streaking craze had caught on up in Canada yet; we didn't know what he meant.  My girlfriend suggested he might be referring to tie-dying, which I had never heard of.  Of course, on the "over" I asked, and found out what "streaking" meant.  And yes, it did catch on quickly.

Yep fairly common for people to tape tiny mirrors to their speakers for some home made light effects.

@Glen, Caleb I was just thinking that these day's you'd use lasers and mirror galvanometers or something similar to do that.  Then I remembered I rescued some bar code readers from the trash not long ago.  They have a laser in and some kind of deflection mechanism for the scan.   I just have to get the other 10 000 things done that I need to do, then I'll look at doing something with that.,,,,

@kfield: Were you also into tie-dyed fashion?

You make it sound like tie-dye has gone out of fashion!

@zeeglen Glen, I just gotta ask: Were you also into tie-dyed fashion?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. 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? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
