The technology is a theory of mine that as our electronics evolves, We will need more and more ways to control the fantastic energies that are already pushing the solid state components used past what they can handle. The only way to advance is to combine solid state technology with the almost limitless power handing capability of the vacuum tube.

And what makes you think they are not inside some device? Remember the scale............

LOL! Ed.

True enough. Wonder how long it took to warm up!

The trick is not to turn them off once they warm up, as Tommy Flowers from the UK Post Office who built the Colossus series of machines that broke the WW2 German High Command Lorentz code would have told us.

And that was how an assorted pack of pommies won the second world war from an old mansion outside London without ever firing a shot. Only Turing, Newman, Flowers and Tutt. The greatest minds of the 20th century and several others and they used vacuum tubes.

Those are the same rectifier tubes you showed me when I was there. They still cause awe.
