    Yer Weccum. Tis an exciting time to be alive and in technology...of any kind. I think materials engineering is going to surpass computer technology pretty soon. They can now make metal tubes so small they can deliver medication into a single cell. Sure beats trepanning or bloodletting.

    Trepanning; we need that like we need a hole in the head.
    When it's time, it's time, and it maybe sooner than you think.

    I always thought the analog shift registers of the seventies and eighties had a promising future.
    Those are very cool devices.

    Some of the missing bits may be in dark corners of my garage between the HRO/m reciever and the 6 GHz pulse RF test generator.

    When one of my kids was a teenager, and quite nerd competent, he wanted to play his electric guitar on the line input on his stereo. The impedance and level were all wrong. I showed him how to fix that with an op amp. He said "Cool. Do you know how hard that would be to do with digital?"

    He also learned that a 50 cent op amp had to be wrapped in $20 worth of parts to make it go.
