Should it be taken down?

That's pretty funny actually. <g> I shoot most of my videos "live", and of course there are often several what I call "fumbly" moments. We usually try to leave them in since it shows the reality of working on things in real time. Anyway, the person who put that "compilation" together spelled my name wrong, so I guess it doesn't count. <g> Scott (with two "t"s).

Thanks for that. I know it's just the editing, but you "appear" about as confused as I felt the first time I opened up a computer. Great stuff. <g>

A lot of it is due to my eyesight. I have a -6 diopter prescription, which if you know anything about optics means I am extremely nearsighted. In other words, when I look over my glasses I can see *very* close up, so close I call it "magnavision" <g>. So when you see me burying my head in there, I am actually looking over my glasses to see in near microscopic detail just what is going on. <g> Scott.

Scott might like to call it "magnavision" but I like to call it "muellervision" or "molevision" <g>

It is pretty funny to see someone wearing glasses take something and put it literally 3 inches from his face to get a better look without the glasses.

Oh, I've tried those glasses on as well, they make me feel drunk!

Sorry Scott, I had to. <G>

If you had perfect vision, then to see like I do *without* glasses you would want +6 diopter lenses, which equate to 2.5x power lenses. Something like this would work. <g> Scott.

I think the video (and "MuellerVision") would be complete only with the addition of some light for those close examinations.

I'm thinking something along the lines of a triple LED cap (available in black too!) or some LED safety glasses.

Maybe it would just be better if you (Scott) just bought a rock climber's (or cyclist's) LED head lamp for the remake of this "classic" video.

I think I have the same type of eye sight. When I use to work in the Theam Park. I was able to read the Miro Printing on the Money. To most people it just look like a Line. I think took the Miro printing out of US Currancy but it was on the 1990s to early 2000 $20 up to $100 bills.
