Clip to hold a book open?

Looks like it clips onto a table and you pass a cable through it.

To be honest it is absolutely nothing to do with electronics. More like a party.

This vendor just happened to have them. :)

For picnics, keeps the tablecloth from blowing away?

That was my first thought - tablecloth clips, but I assumed it had to be electrical.

That was it.

I ordered the BNC adapter and was looking for other related items, and found these instead.

I was thinking the hole could be driven by a servo of some sort, though I was struggling to imagine the kind of arrangement where this would be applied.

I have never heard of Steampunk music, but I am intrigued.  I really like the Myst soundtracks.  If it's anything similar, I think I found a knew genre to heart on Internet radio stations.

I tend to not follow most music (except the stuff done at renaissance faires, which is mostly irish inspired), but many of my steampunk friends think Abney Park (http://www.abneypark.com/) is one of the main steampunk bands.

I had a listen to them.  Definitely nothing like the Myst soundtrack, which honestly, I only correlated based on the website art.  (sigh -- judging music by the album cover)  Ren Faire is definitely a better description.  Interesting stuff.  Not quite my cup of tea though.

That latest Rush album, Clockwork Angels, is strongly influenced by steampunk. It's pretty good.

A lupe (or loupe) for magnifying:



The clear sides let light in, and keep the target the correct distance away. This shows the detail on a LM358 chip:
