    P.S. Check out the thermostat control...goes from 40F to 100F.
    P.P.S. Late night Googling can be a tangented affair.

    This ties in to the 'better writing' thread, too.

    Where I come from (Cornwall), the standard pig call is "Hoke! Hoke!"

    I tried this in California and the pigs responded.

    Obviously, a great deal more research is needed. Are pigs naturally multilingual? Do 'Hoke' and 'Soooeeee' (the latter the normal spelling in upstate New York, where my wife comes from) mean the same thing in Pig? Or are there subtle gradations of meaning?

    Oh, yeah; and I always thought 'baby pigs' were called 'piglets'.

    Oink,

    R.

    Well, they've had Pig-Latin for years...

    It must be your accent, Roger, that makes them listen to you. No matter what I've ever said to a pig I'm always ignored.

    Dogs look up to you, cats look down on you, but pigs look you straight in the eye.

    Seriously though, don't those mats look do-able?

    Oh... I got so wrapped up in the piggie talk that I forgot to look.

    Wow, these look like the solution to a number of problems. When baking bread in the winter I've used electric heating pads (the kind found at the local pharmacy) for years to keep the dough rising bowl warm. But they have only three positions: warm, hot, off. I've also used the heating pad to warm up clock/watch cleaning solutions. The problem with a medical heating pad is the cloth covering... in addition to the coarse heating control.

    This is a much more elegant solution where more precise temp control and water-proof equipment is needed. Good find, Murray!

    Interesting. The sports teams at Virginia Tech are called Hokies, the etymology of which has long been obscured. Seems appropriate for an agricultural college, however.

    It does sound like an elegant solution where temperature control is needed - like printing color in trays - or for anything if your darkroom gets too cold in winter. If you get one, let us know how it works out.
