I own several, it would seem.
I'm a geeky tool.
heh, did you get that shirt from here in birmingham, al at our summit apple store?
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!!!
I was just at my relatives house and there was one of those things in an abandned car.. we had no clue what it was
Are you the real Frank Black?
Yes, my family and I were 13-16 in line on opening day! I missed Leopard day, but bought Leopard online and bought a shirt from someone at MR!
The number on most important tool for a Mac g33k
The device on the left is a slide rule. This is the one I bought as a high school senior. It's a Pickett model 800. It still works just fine, whereas most electronic calculators wind up in the landfill in a few years. The device on the right is a Triplett Volt-Ohm meter, commonly used by techncians and engineers. Although digital models are far more popular (and rugged!) now, analog models from Triplett and Simpson are preferred (and in some cases, required if a test procedure calls for it) by many.
Ital, I'm the real FrankBlack. Fake Frank Black is having a beer at Hooters with Fake Steve Jobs.
Did you mean to say Triplett Volt-Ohm-Ammeter? Volt & Ohm meter would only be two functions.
Apple Store at Summit Sierra?!
Surely, you must be from RENO?!?!
Sorry to make you feel old but I recognised the slide rule because my Dad has shown me them from when he used them and i'm 23.
I'm sure have some geeky tools somewhere but they are probably buried deep in my box o cables (which I suppose is a geeky tool in itself)
negative, a bit further southeast..
apple store at "the summit"
Dang oh well
We have an Apple store here at The Summit Sierra Mall
that's why I asked
New Zealand? Do a lot of business at Dick Smith Electronics? Years ago, they had a very cool crystal radio kit, with enormous knobs, a very nice wooden case, and serious brass fittings. Don't think they have much of that stuff anymore though.
xUKHCx, does your dad have a set of these around somewhere?
The divider is probably one of the handiest tools. Useful for alegbra and geometry problems, it is also very useful for working mileage on a map, with the mileage scale. (Kilometers, for or friends to the north and overseas.)
A Cisco serial console cable and Keyspan Serial->USB Adapter, because I'm probably one of the few people geeky enough to have Cisco gear in their house
Ya gotta admit, that's geeky goodness!
Then again, for geeks, nothing beats a good set of top quality hand tools.
I got these when I was nineteen. The roll-up case is fairly new though. The original case finally did wear out, after years of being stored in work lockers and car trunks.
I could go take a picture of my tool box, but I'm a CNC operator so you can imagine all the precision tools. That's my geeky tools
I thought that was your pocket protector.
How about a pic of your favorite Micrometer?
They are just Mitutoyo, except for my 4-5" which is a Starrett
