Tell me you didn't use any machined components and I will be impressed CW.

Stihl aren't as cool as Husqvarna, btw.

I did it with my bare hands an the sweat of my brow of course Billy!

No, I used lots of computers, an ion implantation kit and a photolith machine. I did do the nast y chemical etching my self and the handling of the silicon in the Fab ...

All seems a lifetime ago now!

But I DO know how to smelt things...and alloy and cast metal etc..being a metallurgist has its uses!

I think the idea is that you have to look to others for help...making communities based on assistance.

CW underlines the idea that a person can do what others think is laughable (my dad made computers from very basic components so that one didn't make me flinch).

The idea of the Ba'ku was that they could see into the moment. This is the idea of having reverence or understanding of the moment. This suggested that they could see how things affected others and the true affect of machines.

(Yes the story is that the Ba'ku have a situation that extended their life but they did denounce technology before they moved to that plantet..there had to be a reason why they were threatened and a fight would develop!)

CW - wearing a Husky cap makes look like a rad dirtbiker, wearing a Stihl cap makes you look like a an extra out of Deliverance.
