Another treasured item from our past, soon to be delegated to the heap of obsolete technology.

Last month, Eastman-Kodak manufactured their last slide projection machine. You better start thrifting some spare machines, if you have any old slides you will want to continue to view as you get older. The full article can be found here .....

And for those who are nostalgic for those old school lessons presented via slides, this book is fantastic -- "Change Your Underwear Twice a Week - Lessons From the Golden Age of Classroom Filmstrips" by Danny Gregory

Awww man...I'd have never gotten dates if I hadn't invited girls over for slide shows in college.
And for getting work, I used to tote around one of those classroom machines with the built in screen and show about 80 slides. I'll miss knowing slide projectors are still being made.
