Yes, David, I see what you mean. However, your threaded preference is just one little click away on EBN. :) This is how it has worked for years and years on this little planet. On bigger planets, like EET, the settings might be different depending on the user. In fact, now that I am thinking of it, I don't remember how are my settings over there. I'll have to go and have a look. -Susan

Hi Susan, thanks..... I agree that it's nice to have the options, but every other EET site has threaded as the default.  Which lets you see replies in their context.  Horses for courses (or: Whatever turns you on, baby... :-) but threaded seems to suit most people.

David -- Yes, I agree with you. I am just sorry I didn't find this collection before. The Marconi collection is in Oxford now, thanks to Enrico Tedeschi. I am thinking of going there and write a story with slideshow about it to bring it closer to Marconi fans around the world. You will definitely know about it. :) -Susan

Hi, David -- Sorry for the late reply. Right below under "Comments" you have the three options you can choose from for viewing comments: Newest First, Oldest First,Threaded. Newest is not intended to be default, it's just in alphabetical order: N, O, T. :D Hehe. If you click on Threaded you get the comments on your preferred view. I think it's good that everyone can choose this. :) -Susan

Susan...while viewing this column I have noticed that whenever you get into it it defaults to "Newest First" view, which makes little sense when you have threads (like ours) with nested replies.  Threaded view makes it much clearer...can you get the web gurus to make the default Threaded?  First time I've been on EBN, other sites don't seem to do this. Thanks

Hi Again Susan.... yes, considering I am a big fan of both Marconi and Sinclair, and have never heard of this collection before, Tedeschi was definitely hiding his light under a bushel.  Maybe it could have worked as you say with good publicity and (dreaded word for engineers :-) marketing, but we'll never know.  But thanks for the nostalgia trip....

David -- Thank you for the feedback. To be honest, it was disappointing to learn that someone thought it was confusing since it took me quite a long time to put it together giving it a thought on how to connect the fact that the collection was gone even though I was talking about the collection. Sinclair and Marconi were central topics in Enrico Tedeschi's work, so this is something I wanted to show. I responded to that on EET, and I am always happy to answer to questions that someone may have. When I asked you about the Sinclair of today, I thought of Steve Jobs. Anyone else came to mind. But yes, Sinclair had a particular obsession with making his ideas work, something I admire. About the collection, perhaps it would have worked well with someone with passion and knowledge on vintage electronics, or someone willing to learn, with good a marketing strategy, good publicity, and ideas of activities that could be done within the exhibition, something similar to the Museum of Computing History in Cambridge, England. The link to it is in the article as well. Great museum to visit as well. The collection could have been preserved at the same of beeing a business. Tedeschi believed in preserving collections. That's why he is attributed with having saved the Marconi collection from being scattered around the world. -Susan

And it doesn't mean Max is less magnificent just because the story is not about him. :) -Susan
