Where are those wormhole-teleporters the sci-fi guys said we'd have by now? It would certainly speed up shipping :-)

Good stuff, but now you've done it once you must strive to live up to being featured again, and higher goals...

I don't know, getting features on other sites, winning contests... It wasn't a particularly serious contest... However it was amazingly cool to have a project on G4TV

One of my goals is to do something that will bring the local news, without destruction, more confusion...

Nice. I have had a few featured, the first one shocked me, as I didn't expect it at all :-) I have yet to win a major prize in a contest though

I wanted to enter the Battery contest, but my UJT didn't arrive yet (I couldn't find a local shop that had them, and RadioShirk didn't have it for sure. )

I still have that sinus infection, but I don't have more then one day off anymore from work (paid) so I have to go in unless is gets really bad....

RadioShack, what can I say. I used to be able to go in there and pickup up transistors and IC's and stuff, now they are so limited, and the HELP isn't much help. "I need a 2N2646 UJT and an audio transformer with a 500 ohn primary and an 8 ohm secondary."

"um", came the reply, "if it isn't in the drawer, we don't have it nor can we order it."

So, the assistant makes an attempt to help: pulling open the transistor door, he says; "It doesn't look like we have either one."

I was teed off by now "Look, an audio transformer is a little iron core, with thin wire wrapped around it, and 4 leads coming off of it. "
Reply: I don't think we carry that.

Ok, I said, I need these clips, here, so for the real electronic parts though, I guess I will have to go to a REAL ELECTRONIC'S STORE!.

They had me ALL bent out of shape. (in case you didn't notice, I can be very "passive-aggressive" when I lose my cool :-)

You can't lose what you don't have...joke* Yeah, radioshack's... actually almost everywheres help, does not help at all. They don't know anything about their store.

You can't lose what you don't have.

I didn't say I was cool, I meant my passive demeanor :-p

They haven't changed much as far as the help, although in my younger days, some of the sales-persons knew a bit about electronics.....although I remember asking about an RPG compiler (they carried a COBOL compiler for thier TRS-80 machines, because I bought one from them), and the guy had no idea what I was talking about. Turned me off to RS for a long time (and I am still stewing LOL)
