I wonder what Victorian engineers would make of today's technology. No doubt they would be impressed by our achievements and by the mystic abilities of small items with bright screens and no moving parts.
I wonder if they would be as impressed by the way we discard an item on a whim after a year or two.
We seem to have lost the ability to design a thing of quality with a long life in mind.
So. Would you use a Router to make this Hub? Sorry folks, that was a needlessly nerdy joke there. Overheard on the BBC recently. A sociologist blew her tech credentials when discussing an early valve computer. "It's amazing to think this computer was made in the 1950s, it looks so shiny with its valves and pistons" Ah, and it was going so well, right up to that last word.
