  • Of old jobs and Vulcan mind-melds

    A couple of weeks ago, at lunchtime on a Friday, Steve Short (of Lite-Trol fame) sends me an email wanting to know if we have spare parts for an old LMI dimmer panel. He even included a very fuzzy picture from his cell phone and said the job is the Marriot...

  • A new look at Net3

    Someone said to me recently, "I honestly believe you shouldn't have to know Net3 from the wind in your hair." Perhaps that's a fair statement - how many people in any office around the world have the slightest idea what's going on behind the scenes with...
