    Not a Maker Faire, but I was once in Fort Wayne. I was working at a TV shop in Pierceton where I had the priviledge of fixing a TV for Howard Cossell. (Fortunately, he wasn't home at the time.) Out of 400 TV's in the backlog, I couldn't fix 6 of them with nothing but a VOM, so I took them to "Factory Service" in Fort Wayne.

    You have dated yourself my man. Most of the young bucks here will not recognize that name, let alone remember his career as a sports announcer, or have even heard him speak. That is a voice from my childhood.

    Magnet,

    Cosell was an ABC sports anouncer. He did the Ali-Fraizer fights back in the 70s and other sports for ABC.

    @Bill

    Hey I gotta get my street cred on this site somehow, and if it's not going to be about my brilliant intellect, it might as well be for longevity and mostly correct spelling. ;)
