Just a couple of things from today.  

First, my ham license renewal came in the mail.  Hard to believe it's been 10 years already, all in the 21st century.

 Second, a slide rule came from shopgoodwill.  This is a Pickett 1010 SL-ES "Super Power Trig".  I hope I'm man enough for it. 

And lastly, to get back to typewriters, I saw a different trailer for the new movie "The Family" today and couldn't find it until the creepy targeted ads based on recent activity plopped it on my facebook feed.  So I clipped an image.   This trailer was the first I'd seen mentioning the MC's memoirs as a plot point.  It opens for half a second on his hands on a typewriter.  Because they are in France in the movie I thought it was a Japy, but the key shapes aren't quite right.  What do you think?


  1. I was thinking an Adler as well. But..maybe a Japanese model.

  2. Key tops look like one of my Adler machines. Congratulations on the renewal. I just got off the air a few minutes ago.


  3. Congrats on the license renewal! Still need to go get mine, but other projects keep getting in the way...


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
