Last night, I read a book about valve electronics for several hours, until my brain threatened mutiny on the high seas of consciousness. So I finally put the book down. Today, I have a stack of that sort of fare sitting next to me, and I was going to download and install LTSpice and peruse available oscilloscopes and variacs. Maybe order some metal film resistors and capacitors to replace carbon comps in strategic places. But I find myself procrastinating and feeling intransigent about picking up one of those books today, or even doing the other things. Mrs. Steerforth is on duty at the hospital, so I’m thinking about watching a B-grade thriller movie and drinking a few beers, instead. I don’t think that my brain has finished digesting last night’s meal yet. It still feels full. Have you read anything that took a while to digest, lately?
