'[OT] SCIAM Connections: James Cameron -> Terminato'

Someone should give James Burke a call!

James Cameron --> Director and co-writer of the Terminator.

Terminator ----------> Scientific specialization begat SkyNet. Due
                                   mainly to work of character Miles Dyson.

Specialization ----->  Modus operandi of Antz, now in theatres.

Antz -------------------> Animated by Pacific Data Images, Palo Alto.

Palo Alto ------------> Stanford University community and home to
                                   many evolutionary collaborations.

Stanford -------------> Location of SLAC, Stanford Linear Accelerator
                                  Center, continuation of 'accelerated'
scientific
                                   specialization.

Los Alamos ---------> The place where the largest specialization
                                    effort in history took place;  the
creation of the
                                    atomic bomb. Due mainly to the work of
                                    J. R. Oppenheimer.

Atomic Bomb --------> Satarized at the height of the cold war by Dr.
                                      Strangelove, directed by Stanley
Kubrik.
                                      Imortalized by Slim Pickens.....
Yahoooooooo...

Stanley Kubrik --------> Director of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Another
                                      doomsday message of machine
conciousness.
                                      Kubrik is also critically acclaimed
for the very
                                      twisted cult flick, Clockwork Orange,
written by
                                      James Joyce.

Clockwork Orange ---> An ultra violent futuristic flick full of darkness.


Strange Days ----------> A similar futuristic venue where the drug is not
                                        Ritalin laced milk, but a digital
tap into the
                                        cerebral cortex.  Written and
produced by James
                                        Cameron.

An off the cuff loop, so don't be tooo critical.   I did some preliminary
searching to confirm that the Amiga was created in the Los Alamos or
Palo Alto region and financed by Texas dentists ( I think this is true, but
couldn't confirm it).  Because.... I know that Cameron's first film was also
financed by dentists.

Hmm.

Should I file this in my "Mail for James Cameron the director" folder,
wherein are kept the fan letters and various offers from actors and
actresses keen to enter the fray?  Rhetorical question.  ;-)

Obligatory PIC: someone saw my 12C509-JW and said "didn't know
manufacturers still used brazed plate quartz windows."  Most other chips
seem to have the window flush with the ceramic top.  Why are my JW's
different?  Are yours?

Mine 508 are brazed. It even says so in the data sheet if I'm not wrong.
They are cheaper to make in small qant's and I am not sure whether the
other kind is available for DIL8.

No different than my 16C63-JW.  Maybe the 509s are just 63s with the
ends chopped off?  ;-)

While staring at a programmer PCB that copes with 509s and 84s, it
occurred to me that the pinout of a 509 is remarkably similar to the 84,
but inverted.  I had a momentary thought that the chip was simply
mounted upside down.  But I laughed at myself quite quickly.
