Default Some of Ziggy's tech seems to be coming true.. .

Check this:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6703249.stm

So, a touch-interfaced table computer has been developed by the Micro$oft gang - reminds me of how Gooshie err Gushie ? whatever his name operated Ziggy, amazing .

Those iPhones keep reminding me of a season 1 handlink too - we're getting there, just need it to scream when you bash it - and there is a Physicist in America who is building a time travel experiment:

Oh yeah, and happy Christmas to everyone here !

Great stories both! But Surface? I like Ziggy better! And the article about Professor Mallet was great! I don't like the idea of only being able to travel back as far as when the machine was turned on, but that's just one time machine idea, I suppose.

Yep, I remember Gooshie and Sam sliding their fingers up and down on Ziggy's console during one episode - that's what I thought about when I read the article. Ok, so it's not a full quantum computer but at least the interface is similar to my imaginings of how Ziggy is operated.

Ziggy is very. . . colourful and would be great on the floor of a disco - lol maybe that is what the project [staff] do on a weekend, play music and dance around Ziggy . I like the idea of a personality being part of the interface to a computer like Ziggy - especially one with a sense of humour. As for the time machine theory with Prof Mallet, it sucks for us QL fans if it's true that you can't go back further [ edit: than when you switch the machine on]. . .
