AW: [ RadSafe ] End of an Era

please forgive the "holes" in my memory: Didn't Eberline purchase a German
company a few decades ago? People there were very unhappy about this. I have
even bought a few instruments of both the original and the new company. Now
it seems more profitable to have R&D being done in Germany. That's one of
the typical results of globalisation. All around the world companies are
suffering from that - why not an US company? - O.k. I am now according to
some other RADSAFErs sending an anti-US comment. Let it be.

Actually, this really is a shame. I hope that some of them make the
move down to Ludlum. This has been in the works for some time now. If
anyone needs backup manuals for older instruments, the time to ask is
I hate Windows programs. I wish that scientific instrument
manufacturers would provide linux software at a minimum.
I guess that loss on knowledge is one of dangers of selling out to
large multinational corporations.
