Terry:
Remind me for next year. The date on the Nixie display is today's date, when I took the picture.

The display must alternate between date and time? Your first picture shows 070410 while the second shows -938xx, presumably 9:38 AM?

Terry:

The clock is actually a weather station. But it shows:

day of the week (Sunday=111111, Monday=222222, etc) + AM/PM + Leap Year Indicator + Leap Second Indicator + Daylight Savings Time Indicator 1 and 2 + Locked to WWVB transmitter Indicator.

date (MMDDYY style)
time (12 hour format)
temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit)
barometric pressure (in milli-bars)
humidity (in percent)

You can see more about it here:

There is a video at the end of the album that shows all the things it displays.

Jorge:

I should have known that you would have the complete "Consumer 'Jorge Amely' Reports" article including video on your Picasa site!

I went through the "Telephones in the movies" discussion today and there in the middle of it was a picture of an AE34 with the SAME nixie weather station in the background! Almost as though the AE34 picture was taken at your house (yes I know it was).

I'll just add to this post from two years ago wishing all of us in the U.S.A. a Happy July 4th Holiday!

Starting this up a couple of days early. Like last year, we are at our vacation place in Point Roberts Washington. There is a huge presence of Canadians here as Pt Roberts is detached from continental USA but attached to the Greater Vancouver area. It is a 23 mile drive through Canada from Blaine Washington to Pt Roberts Washington.

So this year the marina here is doing a fireworks display both today July 1 Canada day and it will continue on July 4. Nice touch! We just got back from watching the first instalment.

Happy Canada Day to all of the Canadians on CRPF and Coming Soon - Happy July 4 to all American Citizens!

I had to google "blighty" to understand the last part of the sentence.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

We may all speak English on both sides of the pond, but they are two completely different languages... :D

Happy Independence Day to all of you in the US!

We are going to have our own fireworks tonight - a band of thunderstorms are moving in ahead of T.S. Arthur today which I hope will make the humidity drop. Then tons of rain and wind tomorrow!

Thank you, Dave.  Hope you weather the storm well.  Here in Michigan the front moved through yesterday.  Temps very cool today.  Still in the 60's and it's nearly noon in the Eastern time zone.

Happy Fourth of July to all of us here in the U.S. of A.!
