Tuco you are using the wrong avatar.
I faintly recall that face but couldn't say who the actor is. It seems from a long time ago though.

For real? It's Richard Dean Andersen who played MacGyver:

QuoteOriginally posted by wikipedia:
The series revolved around MacGyver, whose main asset is his practical application of scientific knowledge and inventive use of common items – along with his ever-present Swiss Army knife. The clever solutions MacGyver implemented to seemingly unsolvable problems – often in life-or-death situations requiring him to improvise complex devices in a matter of minutes – were a major attraction of the show, which was praised for generating interest in the applied sciences, particularly engineering,[3] and for providing entertaining story lines. All of MacGyver's exploits on the show were ostensibly vetted to be based on scientific principles (even though, the creators acknowledged, in real life one would have to be extraordinarily lucky for most of MacGyver's ideas to succeed). In the few cases where MacGyver used household chemicals to create poisons, explosives, or other things deemed too dangerous to be accurately described to the public, details were altered or left vague

Awh, okay. I don't have television believe it or not. And I've never seen an episode of MacGyver. I do have a big, flat screen but it is only for watching DVDs. I got so sick of the commercials and the amount of them on TV that I booted the tube many years ago. So I'm not well versed in popular culture.

Totally understandable, I sold my TV and just watch DVD's on the computer if I want a movie. I don't even listen to radio as the advertising is even worse, much better to just have every song you ever wanted to listen to in CD quality on an MP3 player (which is quite doable). I should mention that MacGyver was popular in the 80's (thus the era of picture I chose), back when I used to watch TV on occasion.

Anyone else notice that we went from the availability of full size medium format images to MacGyver? I wonder if Pentaxians are more likely to have A.D.D than others.

Here in Denmark we still have many non-commercial TV (besides a pletora of the other sort) and radio channels run by the state. The quality is down a bit these days though..slowly becoming americanized!

Yeah, a funky contraption. It is rather compact with only the key ring transmitter, solenoid and battery for hand operation though.

For another laugh, you can check out my other hair-brained idea. But this one actually works and I use it a lot. I develop my film with it and I made a video of it while building it. I've posted pictures of it in the medium format thread a couple years ago I think.

Mr Tuco could be filthy rich by making all these gizzmos and flogging them on FleaBay to out of control A-GAS (accute gadget acquisition syndrome) addicts. If it were not of such a Wallace and Gromit appearance I would have sent my money off. Stuff gotta be neato for me. Boxed, no trailing wires, a light for "OK"; another for "Wait!" and another again for "You @*#$&!!". Maybe I'm asking too much? What was it I wanted anyway...?

Hi Tuco, that sure is an impressive peace of artistic electronic digitalized machinery you made. Really nice video too. You pretty much cover every craftmanship there is (are you playing the music as well?) and show lots of ability doing it. Congratulations! You won´t have to shake another canister in your life. How is it with dry martinies? Regards
