"Wire Hedgehog" is The Evil Doctor Rainer Buchty's term for a circuit board that has been "repaired" by patching dozens of wires into it. It does start to look like a spaghetti monster after a while. Below is a picture of a prototyping breadboard with wires streaming out of it so that you get the idea:
I noticed on that old post that Wikipedia pulled the original Xenu Plane photograph (a Douglas DC-8 painted into outer space). I took it as a chance to Photoshop a new one. Enjoy.
I must again quell the rumor that Rainer Buchty and I are in fact the same person. It is simply not true. I again direct you to this handy table that will help you distinguish between me and the Evil Doctor Rainer Buchty.
I nominate Breadboard as a band name. And, in honor of yesterday's excruciating 84 degree daytime high, I nominate
Hace Calor and
as band names.
Now, if you'll excuse me, breakfast is ready.
RE "Hace Calor": My German teacher advised me never to say "Ich bin heiss" ("I am hot") no matter what the temperature is. Apparently Paris Hilton has damaged more than the English language.
My breadbox manufacturing corporation shall be called "Larger Than A..." Breadbox Manufacturing Corporation, A Kitty Carlisle family Company.
If they ever start up that "What's My Line" game show again, I should be the first guest. I mean, how do you answer that "bigger than a breadbox" question if the things you make actually ARE breadboxes?
