Max, you'll be happy to know that I already have ordered a new Hawaiian shirt (from Hawaii!) in preparation for the EET invasion of Dayton.  I'll likely pick another locally (perhaps a bit less subdued) than the one on order.

@jpjulain: I'm hoping I will be able to be there.  I usually spend the weekend with my father.  He's the one who influenced my decision to get into engineering.

I'll be the one in the Hawaiian shirt -- maybe I can persuade everyone else to wear Hawaiian shirts also -- the main thing is to stop me and say "Hi" if you see me ambling by.

"Hershey's is very different from..."

We have some gormet chocolate places around here that put most anything else to shame. I've also dabbled in hand making chocolates. It's actually quite the interesting process. There's a lot more to it than just melting stuff.

That being said, I still like the basic generic Hershey's bar.

@Susan: You sure went all out renting a plane to get that birdseye-view image

No expense spared (I charged it to your credit card LOL)

Wow, Max. You sure went all out renting a plane to get that birdseye-view image. I hope that doesn't show up on my budget. Seriously, looks like a popular event, to say the least.

If she likes you, then you have a chance.  Her liking you may depend on the quality of chocolate you bring ;)

@areoengineer: She now expects all of you to bring her boxes of chocolates.

A woman after my own heart ... but will she share?

@betajet: I would like to dispute the phrase "chocolate is chocolate".

Fair point -- I must admit that some of the chocolate I've had around Europe has been at a completel;y different level to stuff like Hershy's

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
