Just saw Richard Garriott showing some of his collection to Martha on the Martha Stewart show.

A few of those items were on loan to him from my collection. Just FYI.

He also Filmed a segment on automata for her show. It should be online as well.

I was a minor consultant on both of those presentations. for what it’s worth.

Actually, I was doing better things. But my wife was channel surfing and stopped on Martha.

More puzzles from Martha (including Jerry Slocum, Will Shortz, and another one with Richard Garriott).

And here are the automata segments that Brad mentioned:

(and, BTW, that JiGaZo puzzle at the end of the Richard Garriott segment I first posted about is the work of Mark Seteducatti, I believe)

My wife, who is more observant than I am, says "Martha is a germophobe and didn't shake his hand....time stamp 05:34 she just jumps away and he carries his facial expression without missing a beat. He is good, and one cool customer." In reference to the first video.

This thread has me thinking. I may save up to buy a jig saw, so I can do Cut and Restored Puzzle. It will be safer than doing Saw the Lady in Half (I tried that one once - now she lives in New York and Chicago).
