In that small screen, I want to look the prettiest. But I’m still hiding these feelings in my heart.

The "Boulder Hill Playset," #7 on RetroJunk’s "Top Ten 1980’s Action Figure Playsets" list is still in fine condition, sans box/manual, but some parts need to be reassembled, and as with everything in the attic, it needs a good dusting.

Here it’s either under attack, or being guarded by He-Man’s "Bashasaurus."

Stacked in the background, and darker than I thought they’d be in the final picture are, from bottom to top: Something Star Trek: The Next Generation (either a puzzle, or a model of the Enterprise), The Visible Human Body, a probably somewhat generic 500-piece puzzle, a "Smart One" 2400 baud modem, a pack of 10 lousy screensavers for "IBM" computers, and something I loved back in the early 90s, the Gravis PC Gamepad, which was the first non-joystick I’d ever seen for the PC. It made my PC games a lot more fun. It is missing (box is empty).

turpanzhan

On 9/11 I was traveling in Xingjiang Province in China, waiting for the night train from Turpan Zhan to Dunhuang. By chance, there was an Internet cafe next to the train station, so I went in and found a computer between some Chinese soldiers and a young Uyghur man chatting online with friends. Most Western news organizations were blocked in China, but Excite.com, where I had an email account, somehow got past the censors. When the page loaded, I saw the news that the WTC had been hit by a plane.

It just so happened that my girlfriend in Japan (now my wife) was online and so she relayed to me the news she was watching on her television. Occasionally, I would look around, only to find that the Chinese world was still unaware of what was happening on the other side of the planet.

When it came time to board my train, I was left in the dark. How many more planes were out there? Who was doing it? What would the world look like when I had a chance to check the Internet the next day. Looking around at the Chinese web surfers, I knew that nobody within hundreds of miles had heard the news. In fact, it would be another day before the Muslim inhabitants of Western China were allowed to hear about the attacks. And so, I had only my dark thoughts on that long, lonely trip.

Taking Fingerprints from a Broken Window

Taking Fingerprints from a Broken Window

A Greater Manchester Police crime scene investigator searches for fingerprint evidence during a training exercise.

CSIs spend many painstaking hours searching for the smallest piece of evidence that could lead to an arrest.

Fingerprints have been used by the police for over 100 years but the fact that the pattern of the skin on fingers is unique to an individual has been known for much longer.

The world’s first fingerprint bureau was founded in India in 1897. Two members of the bureau’s staff, Azizul Haque and Hem Chandra Bose developed a fingerprint classification system known as the Henry System which formed the basis of modern fingerprinting.

The Metropolitan Police Fingerprint Branch (using the Henry System) opened in 1901.

Today, computer based systems mean that huge numbers of fingerprints can be checked in the search to find an offender.
