Honestly -- this is something that when I thought about it if I'd been more limber I would have kicked myself for not thinking about it sooner -- I can't even begin to guess how much time I've spend untangling cords over the years -- now I just reach in and pull out the bag I need ...

I never thought of that – it’s brilliant! I recently purchased a new backpack for my laptop. It's not the same model as yours, but similar in construction. Despite having so many pockets that I'm still not sure I've discovered them all, I, of course, ran into the same problem you did. It's the same problem I've had since I've been traveling with electronic devices. When I pull out one cable, it ends up looking like a magician's handkerchief - every cable seems to be connected to every other cable. Pull out one and you end up with all of them. Now I feel like a fool for not thinking of this one. I individually bag things when backpacking in the wilderness with camping gear. Why wouldn't I think of it for electronic gear? I'm getting out the Zip-Locks when I get home tonight.

There are books and blogs on business travel? You're joking! (Really?)

Quite the contrary, Max! You have merely rediscovered what a number of business travel books and blogs have recommended. :)

Almost as simple as using old bog roll tubes to keep scope probe test leads separated and organized. But I like the tip, going to have to change around my bag this weekend :-)

The only thing that will make me feel less of a fool is if someone else says “I never thought of that – it’s brilliant!” So, is there anyone out there…?

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
