@David: ...but I must have skimmed a bit tooo much over that bit...

But that was the best bit!

I don't know, I sit here working my fingers to the bone pounding away on a hot keyboard, and you "skim over that bit" (mutter, mutter, moan, groan) LOL

I'll be retired by then and would definitely be up for a road trip.  My friend and former boss Joe used to go every year, and maybe still does.

Max

fancy a road trip up to Dayton Ohio next May

Looks like Dayton is about 7 hrs from Toronto. Maybe you should organize an EELive Get-Together. Good museum (National Museum of USAF) as well, or so I'm told.

My current office clock is a mirror image clock. Partly because it's on the wall behind me and I can read it better reflected in my window, and partly because it throws people off. People are used to it now though, so I need to find some other form of equally confusing time piece.

I have a RTC Pmod that could be the start of some sort of clock. I need to make something that doesn't require a lot of mechanical or woodworking skill though.

Maybe just a simple binary clock would do the trick. Or, maybe something with Neopixels.

@wnderer: You could make your clock seem more 'authentic' with a vintage time delay relay like this one...

Funnily enough, I have one of these little rascals sitting on my shelf here in the office ... maybe I can work it into the mix somewhere...

@David: So Max, is yours going to tick irregularly?

You betcha -- I said as much in my column (did you read the second page?) -- I bet mine will be more irregular than Lord Vetinari's LOL

Is that your "secret ingredient" to go up top center?  It's the very first thing I thought of.  I actually used one in a circuit back in the '50s; possibly entombed in my basement still!  If I'm right, sorry to spoil the surprise; if not, think about adding one!  Think 6E5.

@Duane: Have a few of these meters, but probably not enough for a clock.

I may be able to scrape up one or two for you if you need them LOL

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.
