On the subject, I just wanted to share this,http://www.decadecounter.com/vta/tubepage.php?item=15

some of the detail pages have cool videos.  I spent only a short time in my childhood tampering with tube radios and such, and never knew of these things.  But I can definitely imagine what it must have been like working with these things, doing digital work before solid state electronics, getting irradiated, feeling your hair tingle, basking in the hypnotic glow.

I got a pretty significant number of VFDs in the component stack back home... they are pretty as hell.
