Trivia Day

 

Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) auditioned for the role of Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, but was turned down after reading one line. Then when Fantastic Beasts came around, he was JK Rowling's first choice and he didn't even have to audition.

January 6 -- National Technology Day

 

Get 3 points for-- posting and telling us about a problem that you've had with some kind of technology Once upon a time we went to Washington DC. As we were packing up, we found a DS under the bed and we talked to the front desk. The owner never called so we got to keep it. A few years or so later we went quad-riding and it started POURING and hailing. When we got back to camp, I realized I had left the DS on a chair and it has gotten SOAKED. And thus, that poor DS died. The End. 

Get 5 points for-- finding an interesting fact that has to do with your favorite type of technology and posting it My favorite type of technology is the gramophone:

 

As early as 1857, the phonautograph, created by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, used a diaphragm attached to a bristle that responded to sound vibrations.

 

These vibrations were traced onto a sheet of paper coated in soot, which was wrapped around a rotating cylinder. This, however, could not play back the recording.

 

In 1877, Thomas Edison’s phonograph followed a similar principle to the phonautograph, but used tinfoil wrapped over a grooved cylinder. The vibrations of a needle attached to a diaphragm and horn made indentations in the foil, and to play it back the needle retraced the indentations in the foil. Wax cylinders enabled such recordings to be played back more than once.

 

Ten years later, Emil Berliner introduced the gramophone that used discs with a spiral groove, rather than a cylinder to record and play back the sound. It still used a horn and needle, but unlike cylinders, the master recording could be easily copied onto a mould and mass-produced. The gramophone came to dominate the market in the Twenties, superseded by the electronic record player.

Hey Mickey!

 

It looks like you have 92+3 points for doing your name in Morse code. If you did the other challenges related to Morse code, you would add more points. Good job!

 

That's cool about your heritage. I've always wondered how words that are Gaelic and Welsh are pronounced. My heritage is mostly German, but it's never been anything that even my great grandmother (the only great I knew) ever thought about much and her parents came from Germany.

 

George =)
