By some strange quirk of fate, Duane Benson just introduced me to a relevant XKCD Cartoon (first read the cartood dialog, and then read the caption under the cartoon)

Hi Max,

Great list of books, by the way!

Do you think it's possible there may be metal robots (As opposed to "meat" robots) at EELive breakfast in 2016? If so, what will you serve them?

I ordered In Search of Time. I'll get The Disappearing Spoon next and others after that. Or, I'll get in my time machine and use overlapping time to order them simultaneousl...

[Duane #2 here - I've already ordered and read The Disappearing Spoon]

[Duane #3 here - Dang. I messed with the space-time continuum and in this instantiation of me, I don't have a job and can't afford books.]

Well, it all depends if Duane has finished his Robot Avatar by then (he's promissed to make one for me also, so we could have two there).

      If so, what will you serve them?

Hopefully, they will be serving us LOL

Did you ever read By His Bootstraps by Heinlein?

The Disappearing Spoon is the best book I've read in a few years. My daughter devoured it as well.

I read many Heinlein books back in the day, but I don't recognise that one.

It was a short story in a larger book...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
