Today, all that functionality and far better graphics would fit in a PXI chassis.

Sven,

As the test & measurement editor, I demand that Max cross post your next installment to the T&M Designline.

Tom's pancakes? Well if I ever get to Beaverton again, I'll be sure to stop in. While you were in Portland, did you visit Powell's Books?

Thank's for this article Sven, I can't wait for the next part

Ssince I'm just down the street from Beaverton I think I need to see if that pancake house is still there.

 

I'll try to keep the bell bottoms in the closet when I go to find this pancake house.

Hi Sven -- the sad thing is that I can imagine younger engineers saying to themselves "Bell Bottom Trousers -- what are they?"

I recall having ones that wrere 22" around the bottom -- looking back that really was a pretty ridiculous style (not as silly as the platform shoes, of course) -- now I'm wondering what my father thought about it all :-)

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.
