If only Noisebridge had a Raytheon Radarange, we could nuke that sucker.
(and other things)

  In 1947, Raytheon built the Radarange, the first microwave oven in the 
world. It was almost 6 feet (1.8 m) tall, weighed 750 pounds (340 kg) and 
cost close to $5,000. It was water-cooled, so also required built-in 
plumbing.

While the wife of Raytheons CEO used the original Radarange oven (six feet 
tall and weighing 600 lbs) in her kitchen for 30 years, everyone else 
eventually climbed on board the microwave bandwagon with increasingly 
smaller (and significantly less powerful) models; today, an estimated 90% 
of American homes have one.

Start thawing that turkey now if you haven't already.
