Still breathing

I happened to look at Curly Arrow the other day...it's now been over a month since my last post! Not good, not good at all. Taitauwai even enquired about my well being. Well I'm still alive (sort of). My brain is slightly fried. I'm trying very hard to get some papers written whilst also attempting to set a new lab up, get my new projects going and phase new group members in and make their projects take off....yes I'm fairly busy. All my blogging time has effectively become paper writing time. Anyway, I have lots of things I would like to share at Curly Arrow and I'll try real hard to get some stuff posted. Whilst getting new gear for the lab I stumbled over an old box containing a virtually unused Vibro-Mischer - Das ideale rührwerk für Labor und Betrieb. Check out this nice poster I found in the box. That is one sexy model they picked to promote their products. If you click on the image you will get an enlarged version. D!

Oh this is nothing - one company until recently was manufacturing the thermostated heating mantles on a jack and the intensity of heating was ajusted by automatic lowering of the jack. They called their product "Jackomatic"

Later they added a source of compressed air that was supposed to cool the overheated mantle. This new and improved product was called "Jackomatic with a Blower"

Embarrassing as it may sound, "Jackomatic with a Blower" makes me thinks of something kinky.
Anyway, welcome back D!
