      They still design with tubes, there are very few 50,000 watt IC's.

      Sounds like me, when I was in college.

      Pencil and paper, rub-on pads, a Sharpie, and hot Ferric Chloride in
      a glass dish, ICs were already fairly cheap, 555's aplenty, as well as
      logic gates. I never got into vacuum tubes, they were pretty much
      history by then...

      Designing on a Etch-a-Sketch... HMM, I'll have to try that some
      time. It may freak out my eldest granddaughter though.
