    Norm, have you seen app called H1SeaClock? The clock goes; the pendulums bob 
    to and fro; it strikes the bells. I cannot watch it without grinning. If you 
    know Paxton's song about the wonderful marvelous toy - this clock has that 
    same kind of whimsical aura.

    Fermat's last theorem, Descartes in a way that cements the historical and 
    scientific events and times firmly in the memory.

    actually saw it or have just seen photos of it. Anybody know if it's on 
    display?)
