OK just imagine yourself on the tonight show, telling Jay Leno what you have
in your house, and explaining to him what each item does.
OK, now that that is settled...
We are all that wierd, trust me! Some more than others, but all of us here
fall under the bell curve for wierd!
WEAR IT LIKE A BADGE OF HONOR!
I AM WIERD, AND PROUD!
A monsterous gould logic analyzer that I cant even give away (and I have
tried to give it to local geeks, high schools and tech schools in the area)
(P.S. if your are in Orlando and want a logic analyzer and can promise to
put it to at least somewhat good use, -please- stop by!)
A basic stamp kit with other IC junk in a black and decker workmate
mini-wood-clamp toolbox thingy.
a 75 gallon fish tank, and a Macquarium (currently stored)!
A car with no AC (I live in Florida!), standard shift, 3 out of 4 blown
speakers (and I listen only to AM), leaks oil, and in it's trunk it has a
macquarium, a BIG platter hard drive with a 1/2 transparent case so you can
see all the insides and stuff (from a old Quantel mainframe-size unit), a 1
meg memory board from a old large vaxen, a core memory board from a
Mergenthaler typesetting machine (circa early 70's), and the source code for
VMS on microfiche.
(Add a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're
wearing sunglasses and it would be another blues brothers movie.)
And the list goes on....
