@MeasurementBlues: I could write a song about that.

Please don't.

PS Have you heard that definition of a gentleman? It's someone who knows how to play the bagpipes... but doesn't :-)

Safari Suits

As David has mentioned, it could be hot in Southern Africa and wearing shorts was perfectly acceptable in many environments along with an open shirt neck (no tie). At one point in the 70s/80s there was an attempt to formalize the dress in what was called a "safari suit". The link doesn't really capture the african version I am talking about and I can't seem to find any other suitable pictures.

There was no belt (which the link sometimes hints to) and the shorts were about mid-thigh length. Also you wore long socks (to about 3/4 calf) and (often mocked by comedians) a comb tucked into the top of one of the socks.

Those aspiring to elegance (or trying to hide a trachiotomy) would wear a cravat.

 People welcomed the rain because it cleared out the pollution.

One of the things I remember most about Taiwan was that on the hills alongside the motorway there were these huge water channels made of concrete up and down the mountains. They were everywhere. When it rains in Taiwan it must really RAIN, or am I misinterpreting the structures.

The pollution is, I am sure, much better now in Taipei/Taiwan. I lived in Beijing in 1996/97, which was pretty bad. I lived in Los Angeles, well I was four or five at the time, during the mid-1970s; that was not a particularly good time for pollution there.

@William, the one time I was in Taipei was the last week of December, 1988. People welcomed the rain because it cleared out the pollution. Hopefully, things are better now.

@Martin

It definitely is cool during the winter months in Taiwan and especially rainy in the north (Taipei), not to mention very humid.

@Karen I would go for light, breathable fabrics like linen, which is one of my favorites. Do keep in mind that it is fairly humid in Taiwan. When exactly would you be coming to Taiwan?

Ok, here are some real world examples of professional Thai women in Bangkok (all are safe for work):

Notes: I assume they are working women (not students or shop-a-holics) because they have badges.  I also assume that the photographer selected them for their style, age etc, and they may not be typical.  And I know what my wife would say: "I'm too old to dress like that (at least if you're around)"

Finally, since this is a serious research project, note that none of them appear to be wearing any wearable electronics such as Pebble smart watches....

I'm north of Boston, Massachusetts USA. The kilt was either an Amerikilt (from http://amerikilt.com) or a homemade lightweight summer kilt.

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.
