Weekly Report No 79, CW 18

From Monday, 29.04.2002 to Sunday, 05.05.2002

Rudi Hastig of the Knuffingen Observer Showed up again and reported a scandal in the Knuffingen DOT (Department of Traffic)....
The last pieces of track in the left part of section 2 are laid out, last bridges and walls are built in, computers positioned. So it seems that a test session is up next....
The next problem, however, is straight ahead: How many controller cards and how many channels do we need for the light control? Looking at the structures, an estimate is feasable but what about the special light effects: How many lamps do we need for the fair ground buildings?

How, and in which department of the Knuffingen Department of Traffic this mistake could happen is currently under investigation. Due to the way too large tires, this vehicle should never have been allowed to participate in traffic on public streets. rh
