    Not that we are interested but this showed up in

    Copied from Google... The original post is not on my news server.
    Obviously Guy(??) has explained things.

    Yeah, the BP guy is over there whining as how we weren't nice to him,
    inviting GM to pontificate.

    And hey, how did your posts sneak in past The Moderator?
    Consternation, there was.

    9) Go easy on the beer at lunch.

    10) Let the wire cool off before you clip the scope probe back on it.

    11) Don't breadboard. Don't simulate. They just waste time and dilute
    the excitement.

    12) When you're really, really behind schedule, take a break.

    13) Avoid machining.

    14) Source terminate.

    15) Orthogonality is your pal.

  4. 1. Always have a top block diagram, in your schematics and in your FPGA

    20) There are at least ten different types of capacitors. Learn the

    21) Emitter followers just can't oscillate, but they do.

    22) If you can't get the part from at least three independent sources,
    consider carefully if you can't do it another way.

    23) Annual vacation is meant to restore your mind -- annually, not saved up
    for twenty years. Go where noone can find you. Do not use vacation to
    paint the house.

    24) Dilbert is a documentary (stolen, but I can't remember where).

    25) Engineering is an early morning pop quiz and late afternoon lab every
    day for the rest of your life.

    How many of these are actually jokes? ;-)
