[SI-LIST] Re: Not quite ready to let go of the WOM gag yet ....

OK, Todd, since we're on that "topic," here's the famous and wonderful Rockwell 
Retro Encabulator video

 Two other favorites of mine, wondering if anyone knows of a link to them
...
The Dark Emitting Diode (DeD) - I think this was a magazine article.  The
devices were produced by taking ordinary LEDs and subjecting them to 120VAC.
They were reported to be useful as power-off indicators, and boasted a
manufacturing yield of 100%.

The Vacuum Tube Modem - also a magazine article (I think).  Reported to
achieve incredible speeds by taking advantage of nonlinear behavior
intrinsicto the device.  Also reported in the same article - a Russian
tube-based microprocessor, based on a single tube.  It was called the
PentiumProtubeski, if my memory is correctly functioning in a write-read
capacity.

If you've got links to those articles, they'd be greatly appreciated.

Todd.
