Is anybody here reading the hardcopy of the magazine? If so, have you seen pg 53 of the Winter 2009 issue? It's hilarious! The top and bottom of the page have the banner "Paid Advertisement", but I'm not sure why anyone would have paid for this. Does the Winter issue cover April Fools Day?

Pretty cool device huh? Make sure if you build one to document the process and submit it to the magazine. Iíll promise the cover to the first working Aeroengine. Just make sure you save the issue, because this is the last time you will see it in the magazine!
If you think the ad is interesting, you should have seen the text I pulled out of it. It was some of the strangest stuff I ever read.
Unfortunately, this ad arrived late in the process. Too late for us to easily fill the space and return the guys money. Oh well, his check didnít bounce and I learned a few lessons along the way.
John, you may want to check with Digi-Key for that LED.

This one had me laughing, too. It's not April yet.
I'd consider it to be an advertising-based donation to the publication.
