Hi Walter,

Thanks for the posting here on Time-Nuts and the advanced warning of your annual event. I know those of us in the Pacific North West will consider the car trip.

To fellow time-nuts -- Walter has been on the 'net for a very long time. See his superb web site (http://sphere.bc.ca/). He and I share a fascination with calculators, slide rules, and nixie tubes (both related to the historical pursuit of precise time & frequency). I have no connection with his company (never even met him), but I can spot a 'nut from anywhere.
