I'd be happy if my wife prepared any kind of lunch for me :)

@Max,

I have no contact with anyone from high school. I did look up a few people on Facebook but decided not to make contact. As for university, I do keep in contact with a few people, even ran into one at a show some years ago.

@MeasurementBlues: Do you still keep in contact with any of those classmates?

Thinking aboout it, I don't keep in touch with anyone from university, but that may be because I went to university in my home town, so I had a life outside of the university.

On the other hand, I still have a small number of very good friends from high school (and one I met when we were about 5 years old at the junior school.

@TonyTib: Did you know you can get stacked lunch boxes that slide into a insulated container?

Very tasty (pun intended)... now, if only I could get my wife to prepare a sumptious lunch for me in them each day...

@Duane: I could probably spend days reminiscing about all of the times when this would have come in handy.

So long as you are paying for the beers, you can reminisce to your heart's content old friend LOL

@Duane,

Nice story about the cupcakes. I'll tell may daughter, who bakes cookies every week for an after-school meeting.

Do you still keep in contact with any of those classmates? If not, I can understand why but not big loss in the end.

Insulated Stacking Lunch Boxes

Did you know you can get stacked lunch boxes that slide into a insulated container?  For example, here's a Zojirushi model - I have something similar I bought many years ago at the Vietnamese home goods store near 99 Ranch in Milpitas.  Zo has  a variety of models, other such as Tiger probably do too.

I haven't touched one of those Tiffen boxes in 44 years. When I was still a young child, my mom had one of those stacking round container things. It looked pretty much exactly like the one on the Lee Valley page you linked to, except my mom's was 10 or 12 inches in diameter.

Almost 44 years, to the day, ago, I was carrying it to school, full of frosted chocolate cupcakes to give to my classmates, on the occasion of my birthday. I don't know if the unit shown operates the same way, but the handle on my mom's fastened to a set of pins in the bottom tray, allowing it (the handle) to pivot out of the way for easy access to the trays and their delicious contents.

A few blocks from school, I somehow allowed the whole thing to pivot, spilling the nicely frosted cupcakes onto the gravel.

Being the type to not suffer defeat easily, I picked them all up and did my best to pluck the rocks off the frosting. That turned out to not be such a good idea, as the smaller rocks easily hid themselves.

Fortunately, no one actually broke a tooth or got sick, but suffice to say that the response from my classmates was intense enough that I will likely never forget that birthday.

Max, Aubrey - Max got his name on the package, but imagine my surprise when, on my very birthday, I opened my mailbox and saw the same thing! Awesome!

This is one of those "why didn't I (or anyone) think of this before" devices. I could probably spend days reminiscing about all of the times when this would have come in handy.

That finger wrench is an amazing tool.  I hope that fat that theyie website gives a 404 does not mean they've gone out of business - surely not with such a good product?  apart from anything else, that menas Max won't be able to get them as giveaways for EELive 2015 :-(

We have an amazing toolshop in Bathurst where I live called Tool King - same sort of thing as Lee Valley.  A very dangerous place to enter - you don't usually get out for an hour or so.....

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
