Hi Gene don't you think instead of leaving patterns in their crops we give them a subscription to router forum, it will then give them some thing to think about. regards carl

I like that idea. It would be better then say, maybe contacting them and mucking up their planet the way this is.

A nice sentiment Gene. More seriously, however, how do you like your SS and your PC routers? I have two (2) SSs and three PC routers. Lov'em all. Second question; what is your trick to center a cutter in a bushing with your PC routers? Happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks,

It would probably keep them entertained for years. Great way to let them know they had a visit from a very advanced civilization.

Like it, Gene, but go a little further. Make all the patterns reveal the same completely random hidden number if examined closely. You could also have them "point" to some obscure place on their planet or in space that has no relevant meaning what-so-ever.

Very funny and I am encouraged that no one has suggested any sort of probing...
