Wow Sam,

Lucky you to have one of those. I would love to have one of the new
FIR infrared cameras but my departement could so far not afford it.
Therefore for showing the world in infrared I have to use a rather
ancient, bulky AGA-Thermovision camera which used to be state of the
art long ago and which has to be cooled with LN. The pictures are
displayed on a small monitor in a rather low resolution way. I like
the resolution and the false color thermal images of today's FIR type
cameras though.

With you taking as stand for prohibiting free speech on tap-l, I hope
you still think it's OK to show the infrared absorption of CO2 in a
demo right? I hope so. I think tap-l can handle a certain amount of
religion/politics/philosophy besides the hard fact arguments and
information about physics demos and labs.

Regards and all
