The citation of the 2N3638 B-E junction as a good low current zener was from way back in the early 70's. Many eyes must have seen it - mine sure did... The poster even included a curve tracer picture to brag about the sharpness of the knee.

That citation may have been earlier than the 70's, as I remember seeing the citation when I was still living in Florida, - my neighbor used to give me his old copies of Electronic Design, back in the days when the magazine still had some serious content.

I paid for the repair of my car - just a link arm and its bushing that was worn out. Got some discount as a member of the Swedish Peugeot Club.
Paid some (not that big) $150.
Besides the car was left at the shop yetserday afternoon and it was fixed by this morning.

I’m worried that I’ve started buying cameras like old triodes, it’s becoming compulsive. I think I better stop now before I get my credit card bill.

Which reminds me, I’d better start building something with those triodes soon.

I assume that is a TLR Bigun? A little more fancy than my irreparable Voightlander that I got as a kid

Collecting film cameras was my thing in the 80's and early 90's, everything from 35mm to 8X10. I was an active B&W photographer at the time.

Is that a Rollei 2.8F or a 3.5F? I have a nice 3.5F, but with not a lot of doodads. I also have a Yashica 12 with all the fixings - a nice workhorse camera, but without the snob appeal of the Rollei. The Rollei 35 is also a nice little compact workhorse - I have a couple...

Yes, a TLR and it’s the f3.5 Planar. You don’t need a lot of doodads if you ask me.

There’s something special about using a TLR that I like, and the big viewfinder really helps. I would love to see a path forward to a digital TLR with optical finder of course.

I owned one before, probably a decade ago. I bought and sold it for the same price. But medium format film is on a roll again (pun intended) and it’s costing me 3x to get back what I had, although it is in better cosmetic condition.

I used to love pretending to take photos with mine. I took it to a camera shop a few years back to see if it could be used, but they said it was bent and would never be able to get a light seal.

looking through the TLR is definitely a different experience.

I couldn't use it to take photos, but still managed to use it to make some photos

That said about a week ago I bought a couple of switch mode power supplies.
