Among obscure pop culture tidbits and stories about wacky inventions, Tedium has often documented the continued survival of technology long thought of as obsolete. From calculagraphs to COBOL, we love hearing that ancient tech survives in the 21st century and revel in the uses that keep them around. So it was surprising to dig through the Tedium archives looking for something I expected to find, but didn’t. Today, we’re righting that wrong and diving into the robust and thriving world of a technology that was foundational to the progress humanity made during the 20th century. Today’s Tedium is talking vacuum tubes.

Article has been posted for about an hour now…nothing but a VACUUM RESPONSE.
Its like the air was sucked out of the article or something.
I suspect the author was counting on the fact that supposedly we don’t live in a VACUUM and should pay attention to the evolution of tech.
I would go on, really I would. But it is almost 5PM and I have to leave work.
Uses, not sues. Didn’t really see much in the article about suing.
