After Dark - Flying Toaster

I'm listening to your interview on the CrashCast and thought about your comments about disjointed stuff for challenges. Being an older computer geek, I suddenly remembered one of the first commercially available screen savers called After Dark. The Flying Toasters became a sort of trademark for them.

I'd love to see a flying toaster. Of course I wouldn't expect it to actually toast bread or have flapping wings.

In case you need reminding...

@Dan, remember that one, it was the screen saver on the machine where we 'burnt' the golden masters in the software company I worked (using 'Toast' BTW)

@Chad, ohhh, you've made me curious :)

Ha! Now I'm getting credit for my posts *AND* Roy's!

Keep up the good work, Roy (and don't make us look bad!)

My timing... :p My timing has been off in nearly everything I do in this hobby. It doesn't stop me from carrying on, however.

This was posted way back in May. :)
Now that's funny! How did Chad miss the post date? Probably the same way I did...

At least you are giving Dan a break since you get to post for the both of you!

Oops, sorry RoyBro (and Dan..),

Sorry, It' s been a very long day ....
Proof: I just (5 mins ago) got around to listening to the part of the Podcast where the Flying toasters are actually mentioned :)
I got confused by the sunglasses I guess :)

Either that or I could blame the Dope (To clarify: I mean the stuff I put on my balsa plane ....:))

Just finished listening to the podcast... If you are gonna put segments about toasters and pulse jets back to back, you really need to use the waste heat from the pulse jet to make your toast...

Yup, I missed the post date. I don't even remember how I came across this the other day. Sorry RoyBro!
If I would have been aware, or remembered when we shot, I would have absolutely given you credit. I honestly can't even remember the first time this topic came up.

To Everyone - I will apologize in advance for any memory slips. The other day I was talking about creating a build video for the Anycopter when the guys politely reminded me that one already existed... And I was the one that did it!

I just turned 40 this year :p

No worries Chad,

You can make up for it when you guys build the Flying Bird Cage. ;)

But please don't put a real bird in it.
