Boring fact #1:

The "red telephone" was never actually a red telephone, or even a voice-grade telephone of any kind. It was, as correctly portrayed in the movie "Thirteen Days," a teletype system.



Boring fact #2:

My former employer, the Harris corporation, built and maintained the first generation of said system.



Boring fact #3:

The last Strowger (Step-by-Step) telephone exchange in Moscow was not decommissioned until 20 Dec, 2012. This type of telephone switch was originally patented in 1891, and the mechanical dial on pre-DTMF telephones is a legacy of this design- each click of the dial advanced a selector by one step, and the pause between dials allowed the selector to drop to the next row until all digits had been registered.

Sidebar:


Got two of the six pins removed from my right hand yesterday, and re-casted such that I can start to use my fingers again.




This is what they took out, the two pins that were holding the phalanx bone together, with a US quarter for scale:



(Apologies to our European friends, I didn't have any € coins in my pocket at the time. Our $0.25 coin is exactly the same size as €0,50.)


After six weeks of immobilization, the two smallest fingers are so stiff that I can barely move them at all, so it's gonna be a while before I use use a mouse with that hand. I can, however, use the middle two fingers on my right hand to type with, so my keyboarding proficiency just shot up considerably.

The sensation of having steel rods yanked out from inside the bones of your hand with a pair of pliers and with no anesthesia is difficult to describe. Pain is definitely a part of it, but there's an additional element for which I can think of no analogous concept. It's something you really do have to experience in order to understand.

I am hoping it will turn out as good as it looks. This is my MK2.5, still currently being finished by Ardler Automotive here in the UK. I am having a V-band 2860 mounted to it.

Will do a proper introduction post and some photos when it is done. Back to lurking status again

Yep BTDT, but it was actually my choice. I initially had such a miserable experience coming off general anesthesia that I refused to repeat it for the removal. The pins were apparently quite stuck too, as the nurse had to lean over the table and apply nearly her full body weight to hold my hand down so as to oppose the ridiculous amount of pulling force the doctor was applying with the pliers. I still have visions of my hand bobbing up and down off the table, caught in the struggle between the forces of good and evil. Yep, good times.
Godspeed on your recovery Joe.

Yes Joe, it looks like an "Elmer racing billet CNC merge collector"

I've never heard 'smoke on the water' done on a touch tone phone.

I want a new dog...
