Default Marconi coincidence!

My neighbour popped into my garden workshop yesterday for the first time. He saw the Marconi 2955 radio test set in operation on my bench and exclaimed: "Good heavens, I wrote the software for that in my first job after leaving university! I never thought I'd see one again, and certainly not in my next-door neighbours' house." We've been in the house for 10 years and never really talked about interests or jobs.

Now that is pretty amazing

I guess there are bits of kit we all wish we could see again from our early careers

There are also ones we don't!

Can't afford the volcanic island yet, but the plans for my monorail and the goons' uniforms are done
