Iron Reb, That's right! You are the younger brother. Slide rules were fading away when you were in school. I still have my Ansco tank somewhere in the basement.
Now that my office is in my home, I have 5 DVMs, too. 3 accommodate thermocouples, one has sound pressure (db), and light (lux). I use a DVM and thermocouples when we cook the Thanksgiving turkey. I plot the curve continuously and slightly adjust the oven temp up and down so the bird is ready at the exact suggested cooking time.
I'll bet you have all kinds of IR stuff around too. Oh by the way, your first generation Owl scope has a dead battery. Better change it.
Oh, there were women. You just pretended you didn't notice - and they pretended they didn't notice you. Go to a reunion. They'll notice you now. And that girl you met in 1981 at the first office? She has a huge right arm from carrying the torch for you all these years. She's still kicking herself for being so aloof and letting you go.
Peter, Nice! Did you dust yours with talcum powder too. I took great pride in aligning the slides so I could squeeze out that all important extra significant digit. Is yours on the shelf in the living room next to your Starrett vernier calipers? (umm.... mine is.)
