@Max - "Mock Electronics is closing down in the New Year".   That sounds like very sad news.    Don'cha hate it when you just discover somewhere like that and they go and close down?  If I was you I'd be heartbroken.....  why is this happening, do you know?  It sounded like they had lots of tasty stuff and there are a few guys like you (and Rick) around to patronise them?  I wish I was not so far away, I'd come and help relieve them of some stuff too....

@Rcurl: Got to get by there, pay my final respects, and help relieve them of some of their excess stuff!

Why not come round to my office this coming Friday and we can drive down there together (that way I can make sure you don't snaffle all the good stuff :-)

@Max: Also Mock Electronics is closing down in the New Year 

Say it ain't so! Mock has been around since as far back as I can remember. Got to get by there, pay my final respects, and help relieve them of some of their excess stuff!

@Rcurl: The last time I stopped by to visit...

When are you coming up here again? I have so many cool things to show you. Also Mock Electronics is closing down in the New Year -- I'm sure they are bringing all sorts of stuff over from their Decatur building -- we need to go down there for a wander to check it out...

@betajet: I like Al Gore's Office.

Great picture -- I can so relate to that office...

I like Al Gore's Office.  It "speaks to my condition", as the Quakers say.

The last time I stopped by to visit, you mentioned that a professional organizer was going to put things in their proper place. I was very concerned that your office (excuse me- Pleasuredome) would get de-Maxified, but I an greatly relieved to see that she totally failed in her mission (aside from the walkable area being a bit wider).

What do you think the archaeologists will think when they discover your office a thousand years in the future? They're going to have a field day with this one!

Is the ASR33 merrily typing away yet?

Ceramic tin cans

With regard to the ceramic tin cans shown in picture #12, the reason I'm interested in ceramics at the moment is that one of my (many) background hobby projects is to make a mosiac -- and part of this is that I'm making my own ceramic tiles (see my blog There *is* a man in the moon!)
