    Does anyone have any idea on why have the INA series of analog parts from
    Texas Instruments became hard to get? Has the unobtanium mine flooded or has
    some old fart who does all the testing in the back room died?

    That'll teach you to use IC parts instead of doing it with discretes !

    Rule #1: Thou shalt not use single-sourced parts.

    Rule #2: If there is a circuit that would absolutely need a
    single-sourced part, rule #1 applies.

    More likely the economy is doing so well that demand has outstripped
    supply.

    The collapse of the U.S. housing market should solve the problem
    fairly quickly, but if it affects you directly, you may become part of
    the solution ....

    Yet ppl here still wonder why I design mic pres with discretes despite....

    (a) reduced cost

    (b) improved performance

    (c) not tied to a single supplier

    Square feet ?

    A house just down from me (a newish 2-3 y/o 'town house' - part of a terrace of 11) on a *smaller* plot
    than mine went for just shy of £400,000 last year. No garage.

    Quite crazy.

    Sno-o-o-o-ort!

    I just found out that my "post-collapse" house that I bought 13 years
    ago for $360K is now worth $957K.

    Of course the only thing "24-foot-wide" in my house is the great
    room... 24'x24'. Lot size is 1/3 acre... it's pie shaped (Cul de
    Sac), so I can't remember the dimensions without pulling out the blue
    prints, but the back edge, against the "preserve" is about 130'

    And the east valley suburbs of Phoenix, Gilbert and Queen Creek, are
    the fastest growing areas in the WORLD!

    Much to the chagrin of Philadelphia, who we recently passed in size...
    the "City of Brotherly Love" (*) has resorted to bad-mouthing Phoenix.

    (*) Isn't that a suspicious title ?:)

  9. How does that price per square foot, in denominations of
    gallons of regular gasoline compare to what you paid per
    square foot, in the same denomination?
     
  10. I think the baseline for comparison is supposed to be the Big Mac.

    And how does that tie into the availability of Burr-Brown parts?

    Sorry to disappoint...

    There's noise in any signal, so rejoice while you can. Longterm,
    people need somewhere to live.

    Mo and I walked down the lanes into Glen Park Village for lunch and to
    nab some catfood. On the way down, there was an open house for sale on
    Sussex Street, so we did the tour (we always like to poke around in
    other peoples' houses.) It was an old Victorian on the standard
    24-foot-wide lot, very nicely redone with lots of light and solid
    design, with a nice little garden in the back. Three bedrooms, 2.5
    baths, 1-car garage. Asking $1.49 million, the post-collapse price I
    guess.

    About 1/2 that around here....

    My house, 3650 sq.ft. <=> $957K

  14. Not unless their weight and composition are as well
    controlled as a gallon of gasoline is.

    I think she (the realtor lady) said about 2000. It was really spacious
    and light feeling. The original Victorians around here had lots of
    tiny rooms, tight gloomy little staircases, no closets, and almost no
    light. The trend is to practically gut them - sometimes literally
    leaving a few sticks from the original, so it's still a "renovation" -
    and open them up and lighten them up. Few people have 8 kids these
    days.
    Here, it's not as crazy away from the coasts, but there are fewer jobs
    there too.

    San Francisco is going insane. The skyline is a forest of those huge
    tower cranes, putting up dozens of office buildings and monster
    300-unit condo heaps. There is most likely going to be a condo
    bubble/burst in a couple of years, since they'll all hit the market
    together and I can't imagine where all the jobs will come from to
    populate them all. If it does bottom out, maybe we'll try to nab one
    for The Brat.

    Luckily, the voters here passed a referendum some years back, prop
    "M", that restricted high-rise development to a clearly defined
    "downtown" zone, so the quiet residential parts of the city won't be
    overgrown with huge developments.

    Roughly 200 gallons per square foot here, sometimes more.

  17. I's what The Economist uses for its exchange rate analysis.
     
  18. Probably better controlled.

    Dunno. Ask Bill S. He could find something anti-American in a trig
    identity.

  20. Over a 20 year passage of time? I don't think so.
