Go With The Flow

Go With The Flow

Work, Plano, Texas

Bonus points go out to any of you old-school techies who recognize that tool I'm using which is almost never seen, now. (And I'm not talking about the pencil.)

This week's challenge was "Shapes"

Great choice!

Great entry! I'm glad to see someone still uses a pencil
(I get laughed at for carrying a sharpener!)

unfortunately I do remember those templates :-p

I kinda use it to create back yard landscape ideas now =)))
Nicki Thurgar18-Jul-2008 20:19
that's a great shape maker!
Nancy Lobaugh18-Jul-2008 19:53
gee.. but what's that white & blue stuff... doesn't look like a monitor to me!
Rodney H18-Jul-2008 18:47
Funny comment about the pencil, I still use one, but they are getting harder to find outside of the government. : )
Cindi Smith18-Jul-2008 18:02
I still have flowchart templates and quite a few pencils too! Love this...brings back memories!
Norbert Fortelny18-Jul-2008 16:49
Is this from a museum or your personal collection?
Just hold on on to it, it will soon be valuable.
Dawn B18-Jul-2008 14:27
Wow! Was this before Visio??? :) Great image... I really like the focus.
JD18-Jul-2008 10:26
Oh, yes, I remember this and all kind of similar things that I have in a box somewhere!
Dave Hein18-Jul-2008 09:55
Us old timers still have drawers full of these things!
Well... I do at least. :)

Beautiful job

Uh oh...the caffeine must be taking effect!
Russ Rose18-Jul-2008 03:57
Flow charts and templates were a part of the world that we all lived it. Then we started doing it on the computer. Yes, some of us have been around a while.
Michael Shpuntov18-Jul-2008 03:04
A flow chart? I thought these days no one is using it :-)
carol j. phipps18-Jul-2008 02:55
Getting down to the line!
Harrison18-Jul-2008 02:02
Nice...brings back memories of college....
mathilda williams18-Jul-2008 01:15

J. Scott Coile17-Jul-2008 23:33
Do you mean the template??? Still have a bunch around the office. They get a little use.

Pete Smith AIPF17-Jul-2008 23:02
Great entry. Great shot.
Laryl17-Jul-2008 23:01
I don't get points for having one but I recognize it.. these days it would just be a cool kids toy :)
laine8217-Jul-2008 22:47
Self made shapes...good work.
Máire Uí Mhaicín17-Jul-2008 22:45
Creating your own shapes with this - a great idea.
Patrick Haughton17-Jul-2008 22:16
I've got one of those too, but its really hard to see the mouse cursor when I'm putting together a visio layout.
Phillip Normanton17-Jul-2008 22:13
Not sure if I've still got it, but I've had one too :-))
Bob Floyd17-Jul-2008 21:48
I'm with Lee. Heck, I think I have two of them in different scales.
Great idea though. Wish I had thought of it.
Lee Rudd17-Jul-2008 21:44
do I get even more points for saying I have one. Somewhere.....
