Tropical Time Out by TrixieHobble Tropical Time Out :icontrixiehobble:TrixieHobble 25 15
Hi again all you lovely deviants,

this weekend was one of the prime examples of what it is I adore about the Internet. And no, I don't mean my keyboard deciding to conk out on me on Saturday afternoon just after the shops closed. :roll:

I was spending some time on SL, reorganizing and expanding the tiny bit of mainland I'm holding and subsequently started building work on expanding the build on it, when I had the good fortune that the wonderful MollyFootman was on as well (something which unfortunately doesn't happen nearly enough :shakefist:). She was doing the SteamPunk Hunt while I was tinkering, and some IM banter evolved. Eventually she mentioned she came across a "Steampunk Clock", and my curiousity was piqued as to what people might consider an appropriate design. So I asked her, and she did send me a picture:

Steampunk 'Nixie' Clock by MollyFootman
("Teh Mollz" next to the Steampunk clock)

Not being a exactly a spring chicken myself, I did recognize the Nixie tube reference this was drawing on, and did mention so to Molly, and pointed her to some quickly googled reference material.

One of the things I did come across in that process was the most awesome YouTube video of a young Czech fella who has set his mind to reviving the "Nixie" tube production in our day and age. It shows the entire process of how he and his staff manufacture them, a complex, laborious process that is more reminiscent of art than anything else. So it is quite aptly named "The Art of Making a Nixie Tube". Trust me, you really want to watch this! :nod:



Isn't it grand? The amazing things you can find just by socializing online! :excited:

There's just one thing I don't understand -- why would people associate something that was actually a not entirely uncommon part of technology in the third quarter of the 20th century with Steampunk? I mean ... I feel old enough as is :granny:, no need to make me feel another 100 years older! :shakefist:


Love,
Lia


P.S.: And next week, grandma Lia will tell you all about the Magic Eye to help you tune your radio juuuuuuuuust right!

"Uhm ... grandma Lia ... what's this 'radio' you are talking about?"
