    ...I was about to shut down and go do the dinner dishes, when I remembered that I wanted to check the weather radar for the Chicago area on weather.com

    So, while I'm watching the rain moving out overnight, a little survey about MalWart slides into view (there was an ad on the page that I ignored), asking me what my opinion of MalWart was. I picked "highly unfavorable".

    So did everyone else who had taken the survey.

    It was 100% highly unfavorable!

    Why do I think MalWart ain't long for this world?

      details like this:

      They still make Polaroid Land film for the Graflock Land back?
      ..or the details you were providing about the atom bomb and it's various parts.

      You  remeber names of things and parts and stuff.  
      See I can't remember the names you were mentioning about the bombs even now, but get me on a piano and it's different.

      You would be great on one of those ask & answer blogs. Some actually make money. Anyway it's a gift or talent that is very useful around here.

      Just wanted to say thanks.

        ...which includes a Graflock back for the 40 series roll-type film that is no longer made. I consulted a book about Speed Grahic cameras when I purchased the back, so I know the name.

        I have a couple of books on the US nuclear weapons program, partly because I wanted to be a nuclear physicist when I was younger, partly to know what obscene portions of my taxes had gone to, and are still going to, with regard to the nation's nuclear stockpile. Ditto for a copy of Lenny Flank's book on the same.

        I guess it's my curse of being an engineer.

        And you're quite welcome.
