Jeff, that sounds VERY interesting 8-) !!
Any pictures, drawings, sketches yet? Those Nixies must be really tiny to allow a driver's configuration - how "thick" (high) will it be?

Do you mean there's no microcontroller? Only counters, flipflops and gates? Nice idea :-)

Zap -welcome to the forum. Your English was perfect - I believe I understood everything, I imagine others did too. :-D

Now you must REALLY tell us something about yourself. Or show one of your unimpressive watches. :lol:
