       We've got a tone of pocket protectors coming in for next week's
Lighting Dimensions show in Las Vegas.  I could probably send a few out
to list members...

Michael,

Had I not been so forgetful I would have worn my special occasion,
no longer obtainable, collector's edition Fry's pocket protector.

Scott

PS
Fry's Electronics is a chain of electronics stores that started
in the heart of Silicon Valley. Their claim to fame was that it was
the only store you could by a 74LS04, M&M's, and a Penthouse
magazine all at the same time. Their success is based on the same
reason Las Vegas hates Comdex. Owning one of their pocket protectors
stuffed with a Microchip screw driver really is a great source of
pride (not to mention the prestige it commands among my friends).

I once heard a radio review of Fry's as a specialty food store
for techies. They started with cola comparison unleaded, regular
and full stregth. (Diet Coke, Classic Coke and Jolt) Twinkies, and
candy bars we featured.

All of this on Canadian CBC 1500 miles or more from FRYs

Hi
What are "pocket protectors".  Here in Scotland, I have never heard of them!

Maybe you know them as "nerd paks", the common appellation here on the east
coast..

A pocket protector is like a secret symbol of membership to the 'geek
brigade'.  The primary function is to stop absent minded tech-heads from
marking their shirt with the uncapped sharp end of their pens when
'looking' for their breast .pocket.

Mutter... mutter... mutter...

I can't believe that an electronics 'person' hasn't 'heard of them !!!!
   What's the world coming to ?

Or, if you still don't know, they are those plastic or metal things that
engineers / programmers wear in their top pockets to contain the multitude
of pens, pencils, screwdrivers, and other things we feel naked without when
venturing out into the world to goto (sic) conferences, seminars, etc.  They
allegedly protect one's shirt pocket from damage, of a physical or chromatic
kind.

You can't hit me, I'm an engineer!
Take off that pocket protector, you coward!

Alternatively, and this will amuse hard SF'ers only, they could be the
dwarven version of a hominid that has eaten Tree-Of-Life.

I haven't heard of them either - so my logical assumption is that only the
USA has nerd, or that there are no nerds in SA and Scotland!

..then you Scots are not 'nerdy' enough. :) It's those plastic things
you stick
into your pocket so you don't get marks on your shirt.
