C1166

This is a C1166 Pulse Tetrode made by English Electric, who also made transistors. Good for switching 17 500 volts at 15 amps. But only for 1 microsecond every 1 millisecond (1T4 and AA battery for scale).

The filament alone needs almost 60 watts (9 amps at 6.3 volts).

Quite useless unless one wants to build a glowbug radar or something. But quite marvelous in a way.





Back in 1935, Charles Garrett built a carburetor that allowed a standard car engine to run on water.

The patents were immediately bought by the fuel companies and put on the shelf next to the Pogue carburetor and the Oglemobile.

I wonder what they’re going to do about these fellows making fuel from water using solar power?

“Hello, Crazy Mo’s pizza place, how may we help you?”

“Well we’d like *yadda* *yadda* *yadda* *yadda* and a mac & cheese”

“Would you like the mac & cheese with penne or tagliatelle?”

I’m trying to register on the Old Mutual website.

Using a password with lower case letters and numbers:

om1

OK, let’s up the security on the password generator and use a password with upper case and punctuation:

om2

That’s a first.
