5 pieces of chalk and which was used to draw a staff on the blackboard in music class. Wonder if there are any of those things left in the world?

i don't know the name, but i certainly can say that they are still used in public schools. at least they were 5 years ago when i was last in a public highschool.

tsuwm quoth <he was graduated in mathematics>

Yes, and I mentioned leylines in another post. Does this mean that "he" had mathematically-spaced lines from head to toe?

Any other favorite (real or imagined) firms, partners or companies?

I used to work with a lawyer by the name of Richard De Sevo. Wasn't till he pronounded it over the phone that I caught on.

Also, this may be a YART, but I had a salesman friend by the name of Mark Cheatham

Sweet Bridget, I am SO GLAD you're back! You too, Xara.

Then there was the fund-raising date auction at the computer convention, sponsored by Winnerd, Inc.

Oh yes, the Dew Drop Inn. That's a real one. It is, or was, a bar here.

I've never seen one. We used to have special blackboards (are we allowed to say blackboards these days?) in the music department with the lines permanently drawn on them. I don't remember doing music anywhere other that the music department, so I don't suppose that we needed one. The music department was, by necessity, on the outer edges of the school campus, particularly useful for those of us who made rather unpleasant noises with stringed instruments.

It sounds like an interesting invention, although everything musical seems to be done with overhead projectors and photocopied sheets in the schools that my children have attended.
