Re: if you went to school in the '80s

saeEE, did you know that you can embed videos in your comments> I went to the lind and got the embed code. But, I had to create a custom size because of the column width. This one is 360 wide x 270 high.

I just copied the code from YouTube, clicked on the HTML button below the entry field, cna pasted in the code.

One of the best music videos I've ever seen.

Several things We realized with school, We realized imperfectly, therefore a-ha minutes have occurred in my opinion often. Currently but only if I can bring a new free-body diagram effectively!

My "a-ha" Moment
mjlandry   12/11/2013 11:55:20 AM
My moment came almost 40 years ago, and it was much more than an "a-ha" moment.  I was working on a hobby project with the CMOS 4000 series of logic circuits.  I needed to divide two numbers in storage registers, but none of the books I had on logic circuits had any examples for me to work with.  Young an inexperienced, I just kept on trying knowing that there must be a solution to my problem because others had done it in CPU's.  For over two weeks I pondered the problem at least two hours each day without any resolution.  One morning I woke up and immediately realized that knew how to make the circuit work.  Clear as a bell.  The best I can figure is that my brain, over the last few days, was working on the problem while I was sleeping and solved it before I woke up.

My most recent A-HA! moment was dicovering I could edit or delete my own EETimes comments (there's a link at the bottom of your own comments to do this)!  Great for those moments just after you've posted something and realise it makes no sense at all......

A-ha! moments are great.  I don't think there's anything gives you such a sense of satisfaction as realising you've just cracked something you thought you would never understand.

Many things I learned in school, I learned imperfectly, so a-ha moments have happened for me often.  Now if only I could draw a free-body diagram correctly!  And of course, if you went to school during the 80's, you might remember this a-ha moment :)

I've probably had hundreds of Ah-ha moments just dealing with Windows. "I didn;t know I could do that!"

One of those came when I finally understood what a wavelet is.

Leonard Nimoy, We'll Miss you

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
