Since I got a Blaupunkt Florenz 20351, an 8-tube stereo radio receiver
about a year ago, I have started listening to music.  A few weeks ago I
went even further and hooked a portable CD player to it.  I know, mixing
transistor stuff with valves is like polluting a computer with M$
software, but my excuse is that I cannot always receive Classic FM, a
small classical music radio station.  I must say that for me, a disco is
lightyears away from the feeling when I listen to the masterpieces of
Strauss, Chopin and others from the radio.  And transistor devices lack
the smell that comes from the radio's wooden case after it warms up, and
there is no ticking noise (of the tubes) when you switch the power off. 

The day before yesterday I was in Berlin in the Europa-Zenter (sp?)
building.  There was a water-operated clock, with two water-bar displays:
one for the hours and another for minutes.  It was really amazing.  I
wonder if anyone has tried to build a computer that works with water.

Hmm, I must stop before I start thinking that 8-bit computers are too
modern for me. :-)
