FormerUnitHead? Totally the best.
Prof.D. got a tree
on Friday [Bristlecone Pine], and it's this really efficient packaging: wired to a wooden base which fits flush against the inside of the box. Problem is, you thus need wire cutters to get it out. So it's been sitting in its box across from my desk. FormerUnitHead asked about it this morning, and I explained. Turns out he has a tool kit in his office. Story: back in the day, when they were in Cotting, there was no network, so they built their own. "IT was furious, but we wanted to be able to print."
