I forgot OZ is a day ahead of US. Did anybody else have the thought of who the hell paints a building black in a hot sunny environment? No wonder Altium were hemorrhaging money. the A/C electricity bill alone must have been the GDP of a small nation in that place!

Shame - I thought the April fool this year would be Dave getting one of the first Batterizers off the production line for tear down and review.

Nah, nobody would have been fooled by that.

Black Rustenburg Granite, and what is not black granite is glass, probably not with an IR reflective coating of gold on it either.  Must have a nice big set of Sulzer water coolers on the roof or out at the rear as well to dump the heat into the ambient. 2kW fan motor per unit, and a nice 2kW water circulation pump along with the 20kVA of compressor load as well.

Every floor except the top one, will be full of stacks and stacks of not really useful old oscilloscopes and broken down Sincair C5's in about 6 months.
I completely agree :-+
If we learn from our mistakes then I reckon I'm getting a great education!

That would become a biiiiig rail way track (maybe a H0 based "tube post system"), manny new work benches and a imense pile of scr.... ahhh priceless antiques.

Crossed my mind too, but unless he found himself a big sponsor (Altium, maybe  ;) ), I don't think that's going to happen. But it would be a nice surprise, though...

sublease space to Batteroo... They could probably use an office down under.

EDIT: Now, THAT would be funny.

Logic says it can't be true.

You would have to dumpster dive your own dumpster, which I don't think would work. Or at least would not be so surprising.

I'm in talks with Batteroo about manufacturing them in-house for them, given all the problems they have had in China!

Empty for 4 years? Hmm... what are the squatting laws like in Oz?

Well, for about 3 years they had a handful of Oz staffers still using it whilst still trying to rent it.
Sad for a building designed for 300+
No one wants that big of a building in Belrose.

What are you talking about no one wants to be in Belrose???

Wikipedia says Paul Hogan lives there!  He's a national treasure!

He actually had me going there until he mentioned he got the whole building. I was ready to believe he'd leased a quarter of a floor.

If it were real you could do your own Sparkfun or Adafruit type thing.  Fill it up with parts and design your own doodads to sell.  I'm sure you could fit plenty of pick-n-place machines, ovens, and whatnot. 

I've been watching Dave since he was back in his garage. So it would be cool to see him go from there to that big building.  I wish it were real, it would be cool.   Maybe some day, Dave! ;)

Now I'm imagining Sagan and Huxley running the EEVBlog family business from that building. :)

And here I thought you'd move (seriously) into something more like this:

Strikes me you get the advantage of lab+bunker+industrial/shipping type workshop to add to the office
