Joy, joy, etc.

To Hell with "Autobahn" - I've been invited to teach a class inside an actual Kraftwerk tomorrow afternoon, and you can bet your sweet pocket calculator that my digital recorder will be along to capture every ear-piercing shriek and subsonic thrumm. A 480 megawatt combined-cycle gas-fired turbine has just a wee bit more convulsive energy than, say, a circuit-bent Casio PT100. TRIPLE DISC TURBINE SOLO!!!

Hello Hello Hello...

Still here - intense workload last week. A fistful of backdated posts will soon fill in the gaps from last Tuesday, so check back during the next 48 for sedimentary thrills!
