Slow saturday in the office. Waiting for electricians to finish, so I'm just staring at the boxes and logo caught my eye.

So....Isak....you've run out of things to do?  😀

As your countryman once said. Why do we need to work everything is built!

We could always make this a little competition, with people throwing in their theories.  🧐

Those who actually know could wait a week and then tell us.    No cheating, Joe T! 

So here's my first 2   ....."Unifying different control lines into one coherent stream?"     "I can't wait for the clock to get to the white zone so I can have a break."

cheers, Aus

😁

I actually have no idea where this logo came from.  I found this old M210 on ebay-

The M210 was obsolete by the time I started selling the product in 2000.

So my guess is "The four explosive vector forces required to destroy the Earth."

Joe, I really do think there is a bit of a nostalgic character wanting to jump out of your body, along with a healthy dose of sci-fi related stuff.  Going to see the latest Star Wars episode must be an exciting time for your family!

I just put together 5 boxes of bound books to donate--I read e-books almost exclusively,  I need space...but I haven't gotten rid of anything near and dear to my heart.
Which means that you will NOT find any of my SF titles in those boxes!!!!

We're going to hold you to that!

OK Cara, time's up.  You have to tell us what it means.   Really truly from the company's founders.

cheers, Aus

Heh. The designer who made it is looong gone. I'll see if I can jog the memories of people who have been here longer than my 21 years...

OK Visco, WHAT were you doing in finding that theorem.  Bored?  Too many cups of coffee?

But it's a possible, except for the dates.  Maybe it DID all start from controlling a pizza oven!

cheers, Aus

I am just one of those people that remembers worthless things and forgets the important stuff... like where I put my car keys, peoples names, birthdays, where I put my car keys, my anniversary, oh, and where I put my car keys.

This is all SOOO entertaining (seriously)! Unraveling one of the great mysteries of our professional lives. :)

 

We all need to take a moment or two and have some fun.  I hope to never grow up.

peoples names,

This is fascinating.  I am absolutely hopeless at remembering names.  It is exceptionally embarassing when I only recall it much later after the person's long gone out of view.  It's there, but the indexing system has gone astray.  But I remember the faces of gazillions of people, remember the instance of that bootlace pin falling off a wire during crimping, remember that intricate bit of that wiring diagram, how that complex bit of machinery goes together etc.  All that useless stuff that really is truly irrelevant (and can mostly be found again in a manual) seems to stick, but recalling a name when I see the face again?   Uhhhhmmmmm.....I know you fairly well but can't remember the name.  I put it down to having to meet so many new faces during my work.  My wife astounds me in her name recall abilities, and she often tells me to do word association, but this doesn't work either!   Maybe all us geeks have a "name remembering" error in the DNA?

cheers, Aus

Aus, it's because you are married. I am absolutely positive that the words 'I do' automatically turns that 'whatzhisname' part of the male brain into a vestigial organ. On the female end, 'I do' enhances not only name recall, but the ability to remember the entire family calendar and todo list.

As far as remembering useless (and occasional useful) fact, it's because we predate 'Google is your friend'.
We are all accustomed to having to actually remember stuff. We're dinosaurs...:D

Do what I do, I'll say; what is your name again? Then when they answer, I say; No, I knew that, I meant your last name. Now you have both!
