Yup... Today I was putting together the 2'x2' modules for one of our big video screens that is going out on a demo. Each modules is worth about $18k... We put together 30 of them... And thats one of the smaller screens....

On the demo floor we had HALF of a screen setup... 8' high and about 30' long Resolution about as good as an LCD tv with a wider viewing angle.... Yes, they have hooked them up and played XBOX on them...

Yea, get a lot of boxes. I hate moving. When we moved in here 15 years ago we agreed this is our last move.

Glen, the new job has been very good. Very enjoyable compared to my other job. Good mix of clinical and business. I get to use an ultrasound machine so that's cool learning a new skill. Can't wait to get started in my own territory. Very small privately owned company but I can see it growing exponentionally when this device takes off. It is actually a new technique in procedure as well so hopefully this becomes the new way to insert a peripherally inserted central catheter. I don't want to bore you with the technical stuff but it is very cool.

There was no reason to monkey with the fuel pressure, replace the wideband sensor, or get a new Programable ECU Module.
good times, right there. i hope you kept the 'bad' programmable eeprom's.

as for space..... dividing it up is also a human construct. thus, with the paradox i cited above, i deny two of the main premises as being real: time and division of space. after all, dividing space is a function of mathematics. try to find a planck constant or diagram in nature.'

then, to point out the ridiculousness of it all, an arrow is not shot through time, but through space. the whole paradox breaks down, right there.

Nice work,D.
I maintain that it all breaks down at the division between the thinker and thought.

you are probably correct. your assertion segues nicely with the concept of a priori knowledge, BTW.
