I note that my kids are too young for this tour (according to the FAQs),
which is a bit of a shame (since my 6 year old seemed rather keen to see
where computer chips were made), but understandable.

While noticing that on the FAQ, I also noticed the bit about groups
being limited to 15, and only 5 groups per day, which seems to suggest
that we're trying to book more people than they can handle.  See:


Anyway, I suspect that I can just show Alexandra the "Fab_Tour" video
here, and she'll get quite a lot out of it anyway:


(is that worth linking to as well?)

Looking at the gallery information, I am now thinking that Alexandra
(and I for that matter) might run out of things to look at in their
museum rather quickly -- it seems pretty small -- is this really enough
for a day trip? or is the tour supposed to somehow include a chance to
look around more of their facilities?  (I am guessing not, since I'd
assume that one would have to sign NDAs etc).

Cheers, Phil.
