    ok, i'm stumped, and everyone else i know is...

    in my bag from the worlds was a little plastic box with a lanyard on it. Inside this box is some circuitry, one side has some silver foil and the other has an LCD screen which flashes black and to the AHG Anschutz logo, but only when the solar panel down which is down one edge is exposed to the light...else the logo stays on.

    inside the box looks like two teeny electronic things, but they are encased in the perspex, so cant be pressed or touched.

    the box is about 2cm long, 6mm deep, and 1cm wide... and i'm completely stumped as to what it is supposed to be for or do...

    any clues?

    if it's simply supposed to be a solar powered flashing anshutz logo on a lanyard then i'm even more perplexed :D

    Funny

    Saul,

    I have to say it though, it was funny watching you snarling at Vian and him smiling at you haahaa.

    He is a great guy and thought it was a good laugh to watch you heckling him that night....

    Rob the reason they are water proof is so that it still works after your average drunk drops it in his beer showing it off to his mates!
    takes real genius to design in details like that!:)

    More likely they saw the size of your room at the hotel and thought you were a high flyer and couldn't be bought off with an oversize t-shirt and a couple of badges.:D
    And if anyone from the Hungarian FT association is reading this it's just my sarcastic humour and i'd much rather have the badges than a flashing Anschutz box, the badges will be sewn onto my jacket before the weekend.:)

    Oh i got those as well :D

    I kept my language well under the radar of anything Neil could perceive as being a green light... after seeing how much trouble Tool was having with his sitters, it seemed the wise thing to do.

    He might have wandered abroad, one of the SA shooters was saying something about having their trousers pulled down and the offenders not even having the decency to lube up... dunno, must be springer talk, meant nothing to me :D
