Re: I wonder if there is much interest in vacuum tube oscilloscopes such as the 500 series

Same for musicians; I've heard that the only way they really make money these days is through t-shirt, etc sales.

Hi Dave,
Stan brings up the issue of the outrageous prices used book sellers are asking for 2nd hand copies of his book whenever someone makes the mistake of asking if he has any copies left. He is stuck in a catch 22 situation. He would love to reprint it to get even with the used book stores but it took him over 10 years to sell the first printing. The last time I asked him about it he was resigned to the situation and not interested in doing anything about it.

The sad reality today is that it doesn't pay to print a book these days when someone is virtually certain to rip it off and scan it overnight. I sympathize since I often thought about writing a book on the 7000 Series.

  Thanks, Dennis-
That was my understanding as well, which was why I was surprised
regarding the misconception that he was publishing his book again.

  Hi Dave,
Stan is old. Stan has survived 2 or 3 bouts with cancer, a stroke, and
the recent loss of Pat, his spouse. So he doesn't have the energy he
used to. He does come to swapmeets where he sets up a table like he
always did. I visited him a few times last summer and fall. He is
getting frail but we went into his ham shack and puttered around for a
while looking for some things Pete Lancashire wanted.

  I haven't heard about Stan in a long time; he used to post quite a
lot.  I think he had a few webcams, but they went dark long ago.
