And we're gonna deserve to, Robin - yeah!
It's strange - we've been doing the right thing all this time, for years, and finally we're going to get some credit for it.
Anon, I'm not exactly a people person so I was surprised at having successfully organized a bookkeeping extravaganza that got everyone warm and fuzzy. My gosh.
Alas, we imposed a $50 limit on items that must be inventoried - the CC agreed to that. And also, I like the clipboards too much to part with them. But if they had been departmental, and if they had been inventoried, they'd be SO-1 through 5.

We were in Walmart tonight and they had some Halloween stuff on clearance. Among the other stuff were clear orange and green bowls like your clipboards. The edges looked like they were lit. The effect is really neat.

No time for a long comment here- I need to head out to the airport momentarily. I believe that the light effect that you are seeing is a result of something called total internal reflection. You can see another manifestation of this if you are in a swimming pool or hot tub that has light in it. If you place your hand under the water's surface, the top side will be lighted even though it's above the light. It's a result of some of the light being reflected downward by the air/water interface. I think something similar is happening within the acrylic.
Thinking of you on Friday- I was at the Atlanta airport for a couple of hours.

Doug - yes, that's the principle behind fiber optics, which has to do with refractive index. I thought it was interesting that there were competing speculations ranging from fluorescence to shadowing. I couldn't see fluorescence as an explanation because of the lack of color change, and I'm not even sure what shadowing means.
BTW - Atlanta airport. I haven't been there in about 20 years. It must be wonderful by now! Actually I haven't ventured close to Atlanta , or for that matter the west side of Athens, in probably as long. It gives me the chilli willis.
Roger - how could I have forgotten your name? But you exposed my security for what it is - actually, none of those fields have to be filled out and I made it so.
