Anybody ever sold anything to anyone "famous" or someone that you had heard of before? I just sold something on ebay to a researcher at a Washington university who is researching with a his team to make breakthroughs in quantum computing and communications. I had read some stuff recently and remember seeing his name mentioned. Just thought that was kind of cool. Out of all the people to buy something from me, it's someone I read about recently.

One time I had a conversation with Randy Pobst and had no idea it was him until after I walked away and it dawned on me.

nothing more annoyingly depressing while working on your 1986 ford bronco and your own brother calls to talk and you can hear his Jaguar XKR daily driver over his speaker phone.

Hey guys, I have a question about hats. I've never had a good hat. Always some cheap trucker **** that just gets the job done, but nothing I've ever really wanted to put on my head.

I was hoping to get some recommendations and/or insight on proper hat assessment, etc..

What I've seen that I like so far:
-Cadet
-some Paperboy/Cabbie

NO ******* FEDORAS

Thanks

Is the principle intended function of the hat to be a fashion accessory or to keep the sun out of your eyes when you're driving with the top down?


Sidebar:

So today was my last day at my job, and the last day of my old career, and of my old life. On Friday I move up to Santa Clara.

It's been a very interesting day, emotionally. Stressful and worrysome, but also cathartic. I've spent the past week training my replacement at the lab- a man who, ironically, was my manager 13 years ago when I first started at the company. Got a lot of "Dude, I don't know how we're going to function without you" kind of stuff, which was both gratifying and embarrassing at the same time. (People seem to think I'm smarter than I really am. In reality, I'm just really good at breaking things and then documenting in copious detail how I broke them.)

Went out for pizza and beer with the guys and gals from work. Yet another new microbrewery recently opened a few blocks away (one of at least a dozen of which I'm aware in this area) and we tried it out. Great stuff.

Thoroughly enjoyed the drive home. Top down, sun shining, 72 and no humidity. A typical San Diego summer afternoon. I'm going to miss this place.

And then the speedometer cable in my car broke. It's been making noise for a couple of years, and I've known this was going to happen (1990, 219,000 miles) but it figures that it would wait until this very day, just after I've sold off all of my shop tools and emptied out the garage. Changing that cable without my good floor jack and jackstands is going to be a major PITA...
