The voice on this defect detector sounds like our 52xx chips to me.  Anyone concur?

Certainly sounds like it.  I wonder, when something goes wrong, does it go "UHOH!"

Day off... it's pretty but I'm not going anywhere soon.  So, a little TI, a little AtariAge and a whole lot of cleaning up the den.

we got lucky where we were in the 'freeze line'- just a touch of ice but nothing impactful.  

 

Winter has sure worn out its welcome imo.

I'd like something like that just for 'wall art', not for any practical reason.  $150.00 is a little steep for what I'd use it for.  I'll have to look around and see if anyone just sells a faceplate with just a few blinking LED's 'for looks'.

I saw one of those at our last Atlanta Historical Computing Society meeting!  It is REALLY cool.

so here was my day yesterday.

 

my wife and i have had a pretty crappy week (sickness in the house, among other things) so I took her out to lunch.    on the way home, tho, a truck stopped suddenly in front of us with no brake lights or turn signal- the roads were wet, too.  we were doing 60, but i was what i figured to be about 7-8 seconds-ish behind.

 

it was either slide into the truck or down an embankment to a shallow creek, so i chose the embankment.  the truck didn't stick around to see if we were ok.

 

all things considered, we got off reallllly lucky; the airbags didn't deploy, i didn't really jack anything up on the car aside from crunching the crap out of the bottom front bumper and a bunch of damage from brush on my driver side.

we're just really sore today, and probably be more so when i get my bill from the body shop on how much to repair the damage ;)   cars are just things but i'd just as soon we hang around a bit.  

 

my deductible is pretty high with my insurance, so i'll see what they say on monday; fortunately we know the body shop that Progressive is recommending in town so there will be some wiggle room while we work out the numbers.

Glad you are both okay, and I hope Progressive treats you better than me.

 

On another note, does anyone here do any home brewing of the alcoholic kind?  I need one golden bottle cap.  I can buy them 100 at-a-time, but I only need one.  Can anyone here help a brother out??

I have some swing-top bottles, as I use them to make my own birch beer and root beer. . .
