Gold is nice, and maybe it's sour grapes, but I think copper is the most beautiful metal.
WOW! And I thought I was the only one...
I can speak definitively on this subject, and declare once-and-for-all, unquestionably, authoritatively, that copper is the most beautiful metal!

p.s. Hello everyone! I just haven't had the time to read the MoHPC in the last six months, but I saw an ad for the 12Cplatinum in the Wall Street Journal this morning, and I had to see what my ol' buddies on the Museum Forum had to say about it! Thanks for all the great news and discussions, guys! (And thanks, Gene, for the high-res. picture for which I was looking all over this morning!)
p.p.s. The depressingly PATHETIC revelation that the "new" 12Cp takes twice as long to solve for %i, and doesn't even use initial-guesses (!?!what the #$%&*?!?), has this EE red-faced with anger! No matter how hard I try, I still seem to care when HP slaps me---an ex-loyal-HP-fan---in the face. I'm sure that Carly couldn't care less how the thing actually functions, but rather just what the focus groups said about the color! Make sure that it has good "blister-pack appeal", boys!
p.p.p.s. Hopefully in a few months I'll be able to read and contribute to the Forum again. I miss it.
