learned about sundials

Attended BSS meeting... Frank King welcomed everyone from 15 time zones. The speakers were Roger Bailey, Woody Sullivan, and Fred Sawyer. Amazing talks. 

Roger gave us a sundial tour in the French Alps, featuring the historic sundials of Zarbula and the modern dials of Remi Potey. Woody talked about how he prepared (with 700 observations) and built his reflection sundial in his man cave. And Fred (of Canada) showed incredible hybrid Peaucellier sundial designs.

I learned a lot.

Heh. Sure were a lot of grey haired white dudes...
