Sadly, I was not aware of the fact that this blog was still alive and reaping numerous new posts. I just saw some of the exchanges between Max and kfield and wandered over. So many new wondrous nuggets of knowledge! (now how many posters can conceive of alliterating two words, one with an initial N, the other a K)? I wonder how many of the vast universe of EET readers marvel at the grip food has on so many of the posters? However, the references to the possible adhesive suitability of Acer Saccharum sap may mollify those readers who are interested in "green" technologies.
Max, if you had been to girls camp, I suspect you might possibly have become educated in other arcane mysteries! Those too were likely horribly neglected during your Uni years (and for good reason!).
@kfield: ...everyone should note that maple syrup does not make a good adhesive!
If only I'd been to girls camp, I would know useful stuff like this. I cannot fathom why they never mentioned these nuggets of knowledge during my university course -- four long years and nothing to show for it -- I shall write a letter to the chancelor immediately!
@maxmaxfield "These are the sorts of real-world, in-depth tips and tricks that you simply cannot find on any other electronics website -- that's why so many people rely on EETimes to get the full story!"
Yes indeed - highly scientific results based on rigorous, indepth studies!
@davidashton "I had my own pet hates when I was a kid but now I eat pretty much anything veggie-wise. My biggest hate was cooked tomatoes, and I'm still not too fond of them."
When I was a kid, I hated to eat - period. It was quite problematic, especially away at camp, which had a policy that the table of girls who cleaned their plates first would get the first choice in popsicle flavors. I got caught once trying to "stick" a piece of french toast to the underside of the table with syrup in my lame efforts to clean my plate.
The girls I sat with pretty much hated me, because we always got the lime popsicles, which no one liked.
