Make Your Own Vaccuum Tubes

Time to take a break for the serious. This is old school at it's finest.

You kids think slapping a new cover on your ipod is something?

This guy MAKES his own vacuum tubes.

You see kids, this is what a radio ran on in the olden days. I still remember these from when my Grandfather worked on televisions. Yup, it'd make those work too.

In WWII, they even built a computer out of them.

Someday I'll tell my kids or grandchildren about televisions that you had to look at on a glass tube instead of the new Xenon projection mist with the neural interface that they've been watching.

Clicky Linky.

And I used to edit HTML with Notepad too! And I used telnet on a NeXT slab by cracky!

Whole Foods Bakery

Same store. Same comments. See next post.

Save yourself. It's too late for me. I cannot resist.

Beer Alley


I have seen the promised land, and it was good.

This is Whole Foods' walk in beer cooler with automatic doors. New store at 59 and Hwy 6 in Sugarland.

Now for the donuts.

Rob Thoughts

Every day is a gift from God.
Some days are like gag gifts.


Those Okies love their football. Here's the OSU themed tug at the Oklahoma City airport. (OKC).

Sick. And not in a good way.

Its a beautiful mornin'

Even though I'm in Oklahoma. Okies don't let it go to your head; it'll be freezing again in a day or two. Or 30 minutes knowing OK weather.

I lived here for 8 years so I can judge: in general, it sucks.

5hrs 43min until I leave for good ole Texas.

Still, good pic. Sunrise over Tinker AFB.
