.9375 was one of my favorites! Left American manufacturing for the entertainment business about 15 years ago. We built off road racing trucks on the US standard even though GM switched to metric in the 80s. Moved on to bottling systems, metric bottles in 16 oz (US) and liter (metric) capacities on US dimensioned hardware. Today I am in Hollywood measuring scenes in US units to send to India converted to metric. Both the engineering and visual effects business have been sent overseas. When there are no more engineering type jobs here, which may be soon, we will convert to the Metric System. At that point the populus will become too dull to want to measure anything!

Comment: BFG cards blow up Mobos (Score 0, Troll) 327

We had a BFG card in my VFX shop - and what we originally thought was a faulty Mobo, became two faulty Mobos, then three. HEY! Time to stop putting that crappy card in our machines! After a very expensive testing process, we discovered that it was, in fact the BFG card that was blowing up our systems. Good luck getting them to acknowledge that... BFG YOU WILL NOT BE MISSED!

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
